Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

Updated on June 5, 2016

Andy Samberg hasn't had the best time with movies. Especially with movies like That's my Boy, Hotel Transylvanian 2 and even Grown Ups 2. Though those were unfunny Adam Sandler movies that didn't display Samberg's full talent. Also, it seemed to be a Samberg run affairs and not the Lonely Island cast like this movie. Though this isn't a huge step to success by the crew, it does establish and good movie that fans of Lonely Island will enjoy.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is a satire on the popstar life that follows the life of a Justin Bieber like popstar, Conner. Conner broke off from a backstreet boys style of group. He breaks off and creates Conner 4 real with one of the group members in Style Boyz, which was the group that Conner was formally in. His first album was a success but his new one crashes and burns. This crash and burn sends Conner down the same path. Will Conner be able to get past his ego and get his flair back.

PNSNS is a good movie in terms of satire. It never does anything that it shouldn't do. It sticks this Mockumentary style of film. Usually it doesn't work but this time they did it pretty well. The movie itself plays off the Lonely Island themes with a lot of similar jokes of the music group. If that's not your thing, then I wouldn't suggest you go to the movie.

Though you don't mind those "offensive", almost South Park style jokes, I would suggest you give it a try. It's definitely Samberg's best movie to date and I'm hoping he can make more in the future with his Lonely Island crew. The best parts of the film is when they have those types of jokes that work well with each other. Also, the fact that they can make fun of their older work just helps with the hilarious moments of the film. The film overall isn't hilarious but has enough comedic punch for someone who loves this comedy, to go into the theater and enjoy it.

Overall, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping succeeds at making a funny movie that doesn't take a lot of brain power to enjoy. You don't necessary have to turn your brain off to enjoy the film, it's just the comedy is more of the genre "stupid comedy" than that of the genre "clever comedy". However, it's enjoyable as hell and makes for a great outing by the Lonely Island crew.

8.5/10
