A pleasant surprise.
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.
November 7, 2002
"Saturday Night Live"-sketch-turned-film is slight -- and surprisingly enjoyable.
June 25, 2002
In the higher middle of producer Lorne Michaels' cinematic oeuvre.

Silly but compellingly sweet movie.

We gotta give Shannon credit for staying in fine schoolgirl form for Superstar's 90 minutes or so of teen silliness.
January 1, 2000
Superstar is quirky, funny, very often bizarre and surprisingly enjoyable.
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.

It's the first film in a long while to give a woman the freedom to 'get jiggy' with all-out Jim Carrey-esque full body humor.
January 1, 2000
Former Kid in the Hall Bruce McCulloch proves an able director.
January 1, 2000
The show belongs to Shannon and her transcendentally dorky creation.
January 1, 2000
It's one of the more watchable spin-offs from the show.
January 1, 2000
The three-dimensional and genuinely talented Shannon is a real find.
January 1, 2000
The secret of Mary Katherine's success is that she isn't afraid to risk looking foolish by trying too hard. The secret of Shannon's success is that she knows just how hard to try.
January 1, 2000
As SNL women go, only Gilda Radner seemed as willing to rib so much of herself for our pleasure.
January 1, 2000
Delivers plenty of laughs and succeeds on a level that recent SNL movies didn't.
January 1, 2000
As the film goes on, the character does get depth, the situations do stay reasonably fresh and the humour keeps things mostly above the belt.
