Based on the hyperactive and often misguided schoolgirl character created by Saturday Night Live cast member Molly Shannon, the film centers around Mary Katherine Gallagher, who’s looking for her first kiss. She wants it to be a hold-your-breath-‘til-you-think-you’re-going-to-faint, Hollywood-style kiss. Trouble is, no one wants to kiss her. When Catholic Teen Magazine sponsors a talent contest at her school – along with a grand prize of a trip to Hollywood and the chance to be an extra in a movie, she sees the opportunity to make her dreams come true. After all, she rationalizes, everyone wants to kiss you when you are famous.
