Storyline

Orphan Mary Katherine Gallagher, an ugly duckling at St. Monica High School, has a dream: to be kissed soulfully. 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 school beauty, who is dancing with Sky, the object of Mary Katherine's kiss dream. 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. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

After the paint is dumped on Mary during the talent contest auditions, she starts running, going through the audience, turning right down the hall then turning another right to run outside through the large front doors. Father Ritley pursues her down the long hall - followed closely, then being passed by, a fast running boy from the crowd. However, when the Priest arrives at the front door, he is alone, and the boy is nowhere to be seen, neither having run past the main doorway to continue down the hall, or following Father Ritley to the doorway to watch as Mary rides away with Slater on his motorcycle.

Are you kidding me? I LOVE this movie
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is the funniest SNL movie ever. Another commenter said it was just about better than A Night at the Roxbury, but I thought that movie was good too.

Molly Shannon delivers a great performance as Mary Katherine Galligar, the weirdo that has always wanted to be a movie star so that she can get a movie star kiss. I love all of the comebacks she makes because they are so out of nowhere and are original. Will Ferral is also a laugh out loud as the hot football player of Mary's dreams, Sky.

I saw this movie in first grade and used a few of the comebacks Mary made when I was having a fight with a mean girl in my class, and she never bothered me again!

****outta***** see this movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!
