Even SNL fans will find this movie too long.

A pleasant surprise.

Contrasting the erotic with the disgusting is usually provocative and can be funny, but not in this underdog comedy.
April 9, 2005
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.
February 8, 2003
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.
November 7, 2002
"Saturday Night Live"-sketch-turned-film is slight -- and surprisingly enjoyable.
October 6, 2002
Seriously awful one-joke stupidity.
June 25, 2002
In the higher middle of producer Lorne Michaels' cinematic oeuvre.
March 22, 2002
A stick-figure Rembrandt that provides neither the quick surreal poke of a TV satire nor the full lustre of an actual movie.
February 14, 2001
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.
January 1, 2000
Superstar will rank closer to Wayne's World than It's Pat or Roxbury. In Saturday Night Live terms, that constitutes a masterpiece.
January 1, 2000
Superstar is considerably less fun than a marathon of Star Search episodes.
January 1, 2000
Just picture an SNL skit that doesn't know when to end, with no musical guest or at least a few commercials to break up the monotony, and you begin to get the idea.
January 1, 2000
Mary Katherine's best suited for the small screen, so wait for the video.
