Contrasting the erotic with the disgusting is usually provocative and can be funny, but not in this underdog comedy.

Mary Katherine Gallagher takes a little getting used to for the unwitting viewer. She grows on you, though, and, despite yourself, you get to like her quirky ways.

This movie manages to have more touching and hilarious moments than most schlock comedies could hope for.

Much more enjoyable than the sketches on which it is based, and Shannon's performance is brimming with fun and energy.

I've seen this sketch numerous times on SNL -- it isn't funny at five minutes, at 90 minutes it's unbearable.

"Saturday Night Live"-sketch-turned-film is slight -- and surprisingly enjoyable.

A stick-figure Rembrandt that provides neither the quick surreal poke of a TV satire nor the full lustre of an actual movie.

Bikini waxing and pulling chin hairs is much more enjoyable.

While the plot is well-worn and somewhat clumsily put together, the fine performance of Shannon as the main character powers the movie along pretty well until the film stumbles to its predictable conclusion.

There's really no reason for anyone to see this film except die hard Shannon fans.

Superstar may not be the most unnecessary movie of the year, but it's got to rank right up there.

At the Movies
January 1, 2000
Here is a portrait of a character so sad and hapless, so hard to like, so impossible to empathize with, that watching it feels like an act of unkindness.
| Original Score: 1/4

A sweet story of self-discovery and romance.
