A satirical glimpse at the early 21st century in which impressionists Phil Cornwell and John Sessions send up celebrity culture, including: Keith Richards and Mick Jagger, who run a corner shop; Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino, who rub shoulders in a leafy lane in suburbia; and David Bowie, who has his underpants starched and ironed by an uptight cockney charlady named Mrs. Huggett. Megastars come and go, but nothing escapes the watchful eye of their long-suffering neighbor, Michael Caine.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The idea doesn't travel well, either from Britain to America, or from TV to the movies."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"The audience will be small for Stella Street, a daft mockumentary based on a BBC-TV skit about celebrities who converge on suburbia."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"One decent Michael Caine impersonation alone, it turns out, does not qualify you for a major motion picture."
‑ David Cornelius,
"Stella Street is worth the stroll, potholes and all."
‑ , E! Online
"The story and tone are so confused and the caliber of impersonations so inconsistent, the film will please only the most Anglophilic of audiences."
‑ Matthew Smith, Film Journal International
"What might have achieved a degree of cult status across the pond when it was aired in 10-minute installments, struggles to pass big-screen scrutiny in a feature-length treatment that hinges on the flimsiest of plot lines."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"A sporadically amusing curiosity that falls short of effectively satirizing the public's fixation with the minutiae of celebrity lives."
‑ Megan Lehmann, New York Post
"Two people walked out of the screening in the first half hour and the man sitting next to me slept through it. When it doesn't work, it doesn't work."
‑ Tony Medley,
"Stella Street isn't saying anything particularly deep or insightful about celebrity culture."
‑ Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Daily News
"The impersonations are hit and miss to the point of distraction."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"The cast of the popular BBC sketch-comedy series reunites for a feature-length comedy, but the concept doesn't translate well to the longer form."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"What's funny at five minutes can be tragedy at 90."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Part mockumentary, part sketch humor, Stella Street achieves only sporadic success as a movie."
‑ L.J. Strom, Boxoffice Magazine
