highly amusing
26 April 2012 | by (Merry old England) – See all my reviews

ignore the humourless sock-ironing pseudo-intellectuals who have dismissed star stories as unfunny and crass - it is supposed to be crass, vulgar, and full of cheap shots. it is a satirical mockery of celebrity depictions in the media, and a joyous celebration of nonsensical rumours that are so frequently taken as gospel by the general public.

the overall tone is slapstick, archaic, and somewhat juvenile - but watch closely and you will find line after line of pure gold. the depictions of various stars are eccentric, exaggerated, and ridiculous

  • just the way the media likes to portray them.




star stories is NOT serious satire by any means - it is a celebration of all that deserves to be mocked - watch the tom cruise episode, and the heather mills episode - and it is done in a delightfully irreverent and shameless manner. there is genius at work in star stories, and they are not afraid to indulge in a bit of tom-foolery, which may put some people of. if you take pleasure in ridiculousness and cheerful mockery, then this is for you! QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT!
