Four of the seven short films are worthwhile. That sounds like wait-for-video to me.
| Original Score: 2/4

Say what you will about this collection of less-than-feature-length films: There's truth in its advertising.

None of the seven shorts here is worth a single, well-made feature.

It doesn't deliver a consistently enjoyable experience, because the quality of this compilation varies wildly.

...a package of short films starring big-name stars, and it's hard to think how else you would get to see so many doing what they do best in a single evening...

They showcase not just the acting chops of Colin Firth, Lily Tomlin, Julia Stiles and others, but some fresh writing-directing talents, too.

Its most consistent pleasures derive more from its performances than from storytelling.

The performances in tandem with the writing take most of these seven movies to interesting places.

"Stars in Shorts" lives up to its title by offering the likes of Judi Dench, Colin Firth, Jason Alexander, Keira Knightley, Lily Tomlin, Kenneth Branagh and Julia Stiles in films ranging from eight to 25 minutes.

This assemblage of star-filled shorts makes for a generally rewarding grab bag.

A very mixed bag of short films, but Lily Tomlin, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Judi Dench and Penny Ryder make it worth catching.
