"About as fun as walking in on your parents."
1 stars

After I saw this movie all I wanted to do was go steal some flame throwers and a bulldozer. Then I would drive the bulldozer through a heavily populated area and shoot fire. I would proclaim, "People of Earth, I have just seen the movie Superstar, and it made me so angry that I realized I am Bangdar, Lord of Fire and Ruler of Soil! Now, join me or die!"

I guess you could say the reason I was so pissed is because I really actually thought this was going to be funny. I mean Molly Shannon rules, Will Ferrell rules and Bruce McCulloch rules. Sure the skit itself isn't that great, but I figured this would be a mindless joyful romp. Well, it was mindless, and it romped...or something.

Once again I won't divulge into the plot. Though not because I don't want to spoil anything but because there isn't anything to spoil. We all know the antics of the Mary Catherine Gallagher thing, yeah yeah, she smells her armpits woo-hoo, just like your little brother telling dirty jokes at Thanksgiving dinner, it got old fast. Actually on second thought I'd much rather listen to my little brother tell dirty jokes. Especially since I don't have a little brother.

There are some worthy moments. I liked the making out with the tree scene. They used that Night Ranger song which always forces me to get up and dance. Tom Green makes a cameo and proclaims, "You Suck!" throughout most of it, so obviously (atleast in my book) an Oscar's on the way. And it was pretty funny that they had people in their mid-30's playing teenagers, that ruled. And the flashback of Mary's parents dying has to be one of the greatest death scenes of all time. But that's about it. Even Will Ferrell playing Jesus wasn't as good as I hoped. He spoke in a 90's mall chick type dialect, which could've been funny, but wasn't. Some parts (like the supermodel fantasy) were so unfunny that I actually felt like shouting at the screen, "No! You! Not funny! Hate! Must Destroy!"

So once again, SNL takes a popular skit, and therefore one of the lame ones (thank the almighty God that they didn't make a movie out of the Spartan Cheerleaders. I think I would've been forced to start a cult) and unleashes it as a rancid piece of shit movie. May the Earth turn forever before we see another shitty SNL movie....If they were gonna make a movie out of a skit they should've made one out of the seven cobras loose on a plane skit. That would be the best movie ever. If they made that I could die a happy bitch.

Oh yeah, they're making a Ladies' Man movie. Wow, I really can't wait for that one. Boy, I'm having giant orgasms right now just thinking about it. Oh man, I just jizzed on the keyboard. Wait why am I still typing. Fuck, I've got jizz on my fingers!
