While a little rough around the edges, there was something about Superstar's comedy which was fun to watch. Perhaps I was simply in the mood.

Sky Corrigan (Will Ferrell)
In any case, "rough around the edges" is probably appropriate for a movie that apparently has received all-around low reviews.

Regardless, I wouldn't immediately disregard the movie as a potential comedy to watch. Though as far as teen comedies go, I've only seen a handful and wouldn't be able to help as far as recommendations go.

One thing I'm wondering, however, if the movie would have been any better if I had seen any of the Saturday Night Live skits with Molly Shannon's Katherine Gallagher character.

Mary flirts with... her tree.

[20161009] I thought Will Ferrell was making a movie reference when he said, "Be kind, rewind" but it was really just a reference to the VCR rental etiquette of rewinding your video tape before you return it. The movie I thought he was referencing was Be Kind Rewind (2008)
