Movie Info

A satirical glimpse at the early 21st century in which impressionists Phil Cornwell and John Sessions send up celebrity culture, including: Keith Richards and Mick Jagger, who run a corner shop; Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino, who rub shoulders in a leafy lane in suburbia; and David Bowie, who has his underpants starched and ironed by an uptight cockney charlady named Mrs. Huggett. Megastars come and go, but nothing escapes the watchful eye of their long-suffering neighbor, Michael Caine.

Critic Reviews for Stella Street

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (10)

The idea doesn't travel well, either from Britain to America, or from TV to the movies.

Top Critic

What might have achieved a degree of cult status across the pond when it was aired in 10-minute installments, struggles to pass big-screen scrutiny in a feature-length treatment that hinges on the flimsiest of plot lines.

Top Critic

The impersonations are hit and miss to the point of distraction.

Top Critic

The audience will be small for Stella Street, a daft mockumentary based on a BBC-TV skit about celebrities who converge on suburbia.

October 22, 2004
New York Daily News
Top Critic

A sporadically amusing curiosity that falls short of effectively satirizing the public's fixation with the minutiae of celebrity lives.

October 22, 2004
New York Post
Top Critic

The cast of the popular BBC sketch-comedy series reunites for a feature-length comedy, but the concept doesn't translate well to the longer form.

Audience Reviews for Stella Street

The concept is interesting, the film is not. A not very funny comedy, with a stupid plot, uninspired acting and misguided direction. There is some very real talent in the celebrity impersonations though.

[indent]LISTENING TO: Pedro the Lion - "Moving Units" / "Priests and Paramedics" [/indent] [i][b]Stella Street[/b][/i] >> D >> Some decent/good impersonations (esp. of Jack Nicholson). The movie was only semi-entertaining and there wasn't much of a story either. [b][i]The Grudge[/i][/b] >> D >> This movie was obviously trying to be scary but it wasn't. It only made me slightly jump once. I liked the time shifts in the story but there wasn't much originality to the whole thing.
