Much like the Sinclair c5 or the apple newton, the idea behind 'star stories' is much,much better than the end result itself.The premise:target various pompous,media hungry celebrities and across a series of programmes rip the heck out of them unmercifully,sounds like comedy gold in the making except it is not.The main problem with 'star stories' is the writing,in the hands of an acidic or even moderately capable satirist (armando Iannucci,Chris morris) the likes of tom cruise,George Micheal,Simon Cowell etc would be torn a new one with sidesplitting results.Instead the creative forces behind this seem to be content to make the kind of cringe inducing ,amateurish comedy thats usually the domain of over enthusiastic you tube clip makers and there drunk mates.The performances in tandem with the writing also leave a lot to be desired,those hoping to see Self important,media whores like Mr Cowell etc getting a well deserved visual kicking will be disappointed as the caricatures on show are largely puerile facsimiles (hardly a surprise when you count an ex big brother 'contestant' amongst the cast)that are more likely to illicit a groan than a laugh.No wonder Mr cow ell etc didn't sue they're probably embarrassed for those participating in this comedy abortion and relieved that there public flogging had all the force of a summer breeze.
