great viewing for anyone sick of self obsessed celebrities
3 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you tired of hearing about all these self obsessed "celebrities" this series is for you. The episode about Tom Cruise mercilously mocks his scientology beliefs and his sham marriage to Nicole Kidman- for this alone I thank the creators of Star Stories- someone needed to do this, and the scene where John Travolta convinces Tom by whacking him on the head with a shovel will be welcome by anyone who abhors religious cults.

I can imagine that the only people that this series offends are readers of "heat" magazine, or people who think that fame and celebrity makes a person untouchable. A friend of mine once commented "if you live in England there's little chance of your ego (no matter how successful you are) growing too big because someone out there is always ready to prick the balloon- witness shows like Buzzcocks, Mock the Week and Have I got News for you.
