“I mean, if I don't have a personality of my own, so what? I'm an actress! I can put on as many personalities as I want!"

“I will grind you to sand beneath my Louboutin heel." One of the most important teen movies in history was given the musical treatment this year, but the studios certainly didn't make that clear!

Let's talk about Renee Rapp's legendary press tour, updating the characters and jokes (or lack thereof) for a new generation, and the unfair ruthlessness of Gen Z's TikTok reviews of the film and one particular performance... ----- Become a Patron! https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom ----- Article Dis ..read more

“There was only one way I'd ever get what I wanted. I would have to become exactly like those people l saw getting kissed in the movies. I would have to become: a superstar." 25 years ago, Molly Shannon brought her beloved Saturday Night Live character to the big screen with a hilarious coming-of-age film filled with actors in their 30s playing high schoolers, an abundance of references to old made-for-TV movies, Will Ferrell as Jesus, multiple scenes of a girl making out with a tree, and sketch comedy legends doing what they do best to give us SUPERSTAR.
