A pleasant surprise.

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

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

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
Synonymous with crap.
January 1, 2000
It's one of the more watchable spin-offs from the show.
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
Sluggish and predictable.

About as funny as an oozing fever blister.

Watching Molly Shannon make out with a tree is amusing, but not even someone of her comic endurance can drag out that joke for the entire doddering length of Superstar.
January 1, 2000
Another SNL misfire.
January 1, 2000
Simply stated, there's not a movie's worth of story here.
January 1, 2000
There's really no reason for anyone to see this film except die hard Shannon fans.
January 1, 2000
A comedy with several good laughs but no convincing cohesion.
January 1, 2000
The funniest SNL movie since Wayne's World.
January 1, 2000
Superstar may not be the most unnecessary movie of the year, but it's got to rank right up there.
