SUPERSTAR
1999, Paramount, 81 min, USA, Dir: Bruce McCulloch

The “SNL movie” phenomenon was never more gleefully inside-out than with SUPERSTAR, the funtastic origin story of “television's most endearing insecure extrovert” (New York Times.) Molly Shannon lays down the comedic law as Mary Katherine Gallagher, a Catholic schoolgirl with showbiz aspirations equally as mondo as her skewed sexual awakening. An absurd, subversive ‘90s ride - and the only film co-starring both MTV’s Tom Green and MARY POPPINS’ Glynis Johns.
