Orphan Mary Katherine Gallagher, an ugly duckling at St. Monica High School, has a dream: to kiss Sky, the most popular boy in school. She decides she can realize this dream if she becomes a superstar, so her prayers, her fantasies, and her conversations with her only friend focus on achieving super-stardom. Her big chance is a school talent contest; her main competition is Evian, the prettiest girl in school, who is dancing with Sky, Mary Katherine's crush. Mary Katherine gets some talent-show help from her fellow special education students, her grandma, and Jesus, and inspiration from secrets in her past. Watching are Sky, Evian, and a silent classmate. —<firstname.lastname@example.org>
What a piece of crap.
Now, I'm one that pretty much laughs at any comedy; even the ones that critics give bad reviews, but this has got to be the lousiest and most unfunny film I've ever seen. Not even Will Ferrell or Tom Green (who are funny as hell) brought laughs to this joke of a film. I like Molly Shannon; she is both funny and attractive. But, as Mary Catherine Gallagher, she is neither and that makes it very difficult to find her undesirable. I hope she puts this character to sleep for good.
