A satirical glimpse at the early 21st century in which impressionists Phil Cornwell and John Sessions send up celebrity culture, including: Keith Richards and Mick Jagger, who run a corner shop; Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino, who rub shoulders in a leafy lane in suburbia; and David Bowie, who has his underpants starched and ironed by an uptight cockney charlady named Mrs. Huggett. Megastars come and go, but nothing escapes the watchful eye of their long-suffering neighbor, Michael Caine.

The idea doesn't travel well, either from Britain to America, or from TV to the movies.
What might have achieved a degree of cult status across the pond when it was aired in 10-minute installments, struggles to pass big-screen scrutiny in a feature-length treatment that hinges on the flimsiest of plot lines.
The audience will be small for Stella Street, a daft mockumentary based on a BBC-TV skit about celebrities who converge on suburbia.
A sporadically amusing curiosity that falls short of effectively satirizing the public's fixation with the minutiae of celebrity lives.
The cast of the popular BBC sketch-comedy series reunites for a feature-length comedy, but the concept doesn't translate well to the longer form.
One decent Michael Caine impersonation alone, it turns out, does not qualify you for a major motion picture.
Two people walked out of the screening in the first half hour and the man sitting next to me slept through it. When it doesn't work, it doesn't work.
Stella Street isn't saying anything particularly deep or insightful about celebrity culture.
Part mockumentary, part sketch humor, Stella Street achieves only sporadic success as a movie.
