I have no idea what is wrong with all these lame-ass downers.... Don't listen to any other comments on this movie. Because obviously, non of them got it.... This movie has been on my top 10 funniest movies since the first time i saw it. My friends and I still gather on occasion and light a Lil something up while we laugh are asses of at this film. Molly Shannon is a Comedic Genius, and Will Farrell falls right behind... Buy this move right now, smoke some bongs, and get your fiends over to watch it with you, so that after its over, and your quoting the movie ever 5mins after, they know <more>
what the hell it is you're talking about. As for he rest of you.. WHY DON"T YOU GO DRINK A BOTTLE OF YOURSELF!
I remember watching this movie when I was working in America in the year 2000 with my cousin and absolutely pissing my pants with laughter at it.I then totally forgot about it until I noticed it on a website for sale for like £3 and thought I would buy it and see if it was as funny as I remembered. It was - and it was funnier the second time around.Molly Shannon is an underrated comedic actress who we should see more often and who should be given lead roles on a more regular basis as she is absolutely hilarious in Superstar.This movie has absolutely no point and no story but is just full of <more>
class comedy moments which make me chuckle over and over again. And not only is Ms Shannon rather good in it - Will Ferrell is on top form before he made it big time. Its just a shame he didn't drag Molly with him and make her as big a star as she is.Get her in the Frat Pack now! Oh - and this movie is well funny so I recommend it highly to anyone with a sense of humour!
one of the most funniest movies (by ChelsinWonderland)
i remember watching on TV and i died laughing it is one of the most funniest movies and molly Shannon plays Mary Kathrine Gallagher a nerdy catholic school girl who wants to be a star and win her school talent show and their are plenty of laugh out loud moments and molly Shannon plays Mary Kathrine Gallagher really good and i really couldn't picture anyone else playing that role and well the whole main cast played their roles really good too. this is really a good comedy movie very funny a really underrated comedy. anyway i hope people see this movie it is a funny movie and i hope people <more>
enjoy as much as i did thanks for reading my opinion on this movie
I loved this movie! It was probably one of the funniest movies I had ever seen! When I had watched Molly Shannon preform her "Superstar" on SNL, I loved it. It was hilarious and something new and enjoyable. This movie makes me feel better for some reason. When I'm depressed or something, I watch this movie and laugh forever and instantly feel better! My favorite part of the movie was Mary her name in the movie saying Superstar! I loved it. It made me feel happy and made me laugh. Also, this movie does have some meaning to it. It shows you that anything is possible. And I mean <more>
ANYTHING. If Mary Katherine Gallagher can do it, you most certainly can. I really think you should at least rent it but I really think you should buy it because of how many times you will want to watch it. It's hilarious and you will find yourself watching it over and over again. "...you didn't know you were competing against a...SUPERSTAR!!!"
If you like comedy at it's lowest form, meaning physical and a bit on the silly side . Then watch this movie . Molly Shannon is so funny .Will Ferrell is super funny ,if you like just good old simple comedy this will leave you rolling in your seat . Especially the dance parts in the movie are so crazy . Then when the so-called tough guy turns out to be a blithering idiot , his signature brown leather jacket instead of black just made this movie all the more perfect .I laugh until I cried .Tom Green has a small part in this movie ,and just adds to the insanity that is going on. Leading up <more>
to the big talent show to fight against V.D. ,and when the preacher tells Mary that she's so special there going put her in special Ed class I just bout pee my pants .
Australia ignored this film at the cinema's. Only because we have no idea who "Mary Catherine" is. I wish we could make comedies like this. This is A story that we can all relate to. We all dream of becoming something great and this movie shows us how much fun it is to dream. I rate this movie 9 out of 10.

Ceirtanly Molly Shannon is one of the most brilliant humorists right now, and yet we hope she still has a lot to do. From her beginnings, she has always been involved in interesting projects dealing with both comedy and drama, but always from the independent wing of the factory. Some of her appearances on TV: Twin Peaks, Will&Grace, Sex and the City and the most popular on Saturday Night Live, performing one of her greatest characters: Mary Katherine Gallagher, who leads this crazy movie. Besides, she also appears in Never Been Kissed, Happiness, American Splendor... It is not a <more>
coincidence that all the projects she is involved in are such recommendable. Warning: Superstar is a freak movie. A pure freak film... freak enough to be a cult film. If you enjoy Family Dad, Kevin Spencer, Airport, Top Secret, John Waters' movies, Ghost World... you'll like this one for sure. That character , Mary Katherine Gallagher deserves an honor place in the comedy history. She's totally freak obsessed with being kissed. What else better than becoming a superstar for that purpose? There are all the necessary elements in this high school movie: the typical religious school, 30-year-old playing teenagers, the mean blond girl, the cute-one that has at least 40 and wears a wig!! , the freaks from the special education class and a talent contest. The movie itself maintains the rhythm , with hilarious moments, and it's so easy going that you can't believe it longs 90 minutes. Of course Molly Shannon puts all the attractiveness to this movie, her character is the freakiest thing ever. Once you have seen it , it will be part of your cult movies to watch with friends and laugh time and again. If you like it, it does mean that you are a freak. But if you don't, it does mean you are a freak , a freak without sense of humor.
Much better than I expected...a really funny movie! (by poulet)
I went to see Superstar on the understanding that some SNL movies are terrible, and I didn't expect too much...but I really thought this was a great movie. I also enjoyed the additional surprise that his film was directed by Bruce McCulloch whose talent as a director was revealed in his Kids in the Hall sketches; i.e. "Sausages". I think his direction was excellent. The plot was predictable as some like to point out...predictably but who goes to a film like this expecting wildly innovative writing? The actors were very funny and the humor quirky; it even managed to be warm, <more>
but not in a syrupy way. This is a movie I recommend!
I completely enjoyed Superstar. Its one of those movies that are kind of cute, but still had enough off color humor to keep your attention. It is not raunchy at all. The off color humor comes from many things that kids in the age group really go through.I grew up attending Catholic High School. So I can related to many things in this movie. Just the uniforms alone are funny. And the characters of the Priests and Nuns are very funny, and reminds me of many of the teachers I had back in the day.Yes both Molly and Will were a little too old for their characters. I wonder what the movie would <more>
have been like if they made it with child actors. It certainly would have been a whole different thing. But I like how they made it with the older actors. It's Molly Shannon's character and really no one but Molly can play her.
