ReceptionEdit

From Nathan Rabin at The A.V. Club:

Starstruck, filmed under the significantly less Blockbuster-friendly title Starfucker, serves as a sadly typical example of the genre, taking on such familiar targets as greedy agents, starlet bimbos, and drug-addled actors with all the freshness of an episode of Three's Company... Perhaps part of the reason films like Starstruck keep getting made is because they flatter their audience, enabling anyone who has picked up a copy of Movieline within the past few years or caught an episode of Action to feel like a bona fide Hollywood insider. But even if Starstruck weren't dealing in such fruitless, tired subject matter, it still wouldn't work. Its leads are smug, obnoxious, slap-worthy cretins, and with the possible exception of a wry Clarence Williams III as Kennedy's incompetent lawyer, no one seems to have any idea what to do with the material.[1]
