‘Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping’ Review

7 June 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows, Maya Rudolph, Joan Cusack, Imogen Poots, Chris Redd, James Buckley, Edgar Blackmon | Written by Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer | Directed by Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone

What do you get if you take the outrageous gross-out comedy of producer Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Superbad, Knocked Up) and the trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, collectively known as comedy pop songsters The Lonely Island? Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping  – a faux-documentary which is (and this may sound bombastic) the This is Spinal Tap for the Justin Bieber generation.

The story is the flimsiest of plots: the film goes behind the scenes as former The Style Boyz member (think New Edition meets Beastie Boys) turned solo artist singer/rapper Conner4Real (Samberg) faces a crisis of popularity after his sophomore album flops, leading his entire career into a unrecoverable talispin – leaving his fans, »

Ninja Turtles 2 Wins the Weekend Box Office with $35.2M

5 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After winning at the box office with $65.3 million over the three-day weekend and $80 million over the four-day holiday, 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse wasn't expected to win two weeks in a row. Three newcomers hit theaters this summer weekend, with Paramount's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Warner Bros.' Me Before You and Universal's Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping arriving in wide release. As expected, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows came out on top, but it was still much lower than projected, winning with an estimated $35.2 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows had the widest debut this weekend, opening in 4,071 theaters, although that count still came in under the 4,153 theater roll-out of X-Men: Apocalypse, which dropped to second place with $22.3 million, a 66.1% drop from its debut. Me Before You took third place with $18.5 million, opening in 2,704 theaters, »

Movie Review – Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016)

3 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, 2016.

Directed by Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone

Starring Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows, Maya Rudolph, Will Arnett, Bill Hader, Imogen Poots, Joan Cusack, Will Forte, and Martin Sheen

Synopsis:

When it becomes clear that his solo album is a failure, a former boy band member does everything in his power to maintain his celebrity status.

Let’s be real, 90% of modern mainstream music is straight-up garbage, bottom of the barrel trash that essentially exemplifies most of everything wrong with society nowadays. We don’t need a movie like Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping to satirize the music industry and sycophant culture to tell it to us, no one really asked for one, but thankfully we got it, because this brisk 86 minute mockumentary stylized slice of comedy from professional music pranksters and comedy act trio The Lonely Island is completely ridiculous. »

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping – Review

2 June 2016 11:24 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Last week saw the wide release of one of the year’s best documentaries, Weiner. Through very funny (and tragic at times) everything in this political profile is real (much to the title subject’s embarrassment). So, let’s turn the tables this week with a fictional comedy, shot and edited as though it’s a documentary. Yes, it’s another example of the hybrid made so popular by triple threat Christopher Guest (it’s almost as though he invented it), the “mock-umentary”. All the way back in 1984, Guest (with director Rob Reiner) torpedoed the serious film format with the look at a fictitious heavy metal band in This Is Spinal Tap (later he, as actor/writer/director, would take on 60’s folk music with A Mighty Wind). Happily a current group of satirists have decided that those music styles are not the only ones ripe for ridicule (rap got »

Popstar Review: Lonely Island Returns in Hilarious Fashion

2 June 2016 8:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2005, longtime childhood friends Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer were all put on the map with their now-iconic Saturday Night Live short Lazy Sunday. They also came together with their first feature film, 2007's Hot Rod, which Schaffer directed and Samberg and Taccone starred in, but it didn't fare too well with fans and critics alike (like me). They each branched out and did their own things after leaving Saturday Night Live, but now they're back, setting their satirical sights on the music industry in Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, hitting theaters on June 3. While it can be a tad uneven at times, Popstar marks a hilarious return for the Lonely Island crew.

In many ways, a movie like Popstar that turns the music industry on its ear is natural progression for the Lonely Island crew, whose "digital shorts" are often long-form music videos themselves. The entire »

[Review] Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

1 June 2016 9:33 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s all about #brand loyalty for The Lonely Island in their first “official” movie, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, which stays true to the absurdist, bite-sized comedy that made their name. The musical comedy trio – comprised of Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg, and Jorma Taccone – has been around for over a decade, breaking out through their digital shorts on Saturday Night Live.

Taking clear inspiration from recent music “bio-films” like Katy Perry: Part of Me and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, Popstar concerns a…pop star…named Conner4Real (Andy Samberg), who has gained worldwide success despite a general terrible-ness in his musical output. His critically-adored and culturally-loved origins come in the form of the boy band Style Boyz (Schaffer, Samberg and Taccone) who had a popular dance move (“The Donkey Roll”) along with a slew of hits. Cameos from the likes of Usher, Nas, Mariah Carey, and countless more (seriously, »

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping Review

1 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By way of musical mockumentary, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping delivers hilarity, stupidity, and a whole lot of other expected “-ity’s.” This is textbook SNL-alumn scripting. Direct parallels are drawn to Jon M. Chu’s Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, The Lonely Island drops some raunchy new material, and celebrity cameos fight for top-billing. We’re talking about a movie that – in one moment – captures a fish-costume-wearing Justin Timberlake shredding guitar riffs while Tim Meadows plays saxophone and Michael Bolton backs up Andy Samberg (who is rapping about his silly thoughts). Take that comment for Exactly what it is, and prepare for The Lonely Island’s latest bit of glorious absurdity.

Andy Samberg stars as Connor4Real, a pop sensation who found tremendous solo success after his original band, the Style Boyz, parted ways. With bandmate Lawrence (Akiva Schaffer) gone, Connor and his DJ, Owen (Jorma Taccone), tear »

Film Review: ‘Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping’

1 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Andy Samberg were still on “Saturday Night Live,” you wouldn’t have to close your eyes too hard to imagine Conner 4 Real, the cluelessly self-confident idiot white-boy rapper he plays in “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping,” as the featured playa on one of Samberg’s SNL Digital Shorts. Conner has tattoos running down his arms, and he sports a diamond earring, gold chains, and a hip-hop haircut so unthreatening it looks like it should be called the Ivy League Fade. A middle-class poseur who knows that he’s a sellout but pretends he’s a gangsta, Conner is straight outta Sacramento, and his success is a pure product of marketing. Yet all his trademarks — the baggy clothes and obscene lyrics, the palms-down “inner city” hand gestures — are signifiers of his authenticity.

If Samberg had sprung this character on us back in the day (as Conner himself might put it »

Will Ninja Turtles 2 Be a Bigger Box Office Hit Than Expected?

31 May 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Another Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, as 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse pulls away with an easy win at the box office. The superhero sequel took in $65.3 million over the three-day weekend and $80 million over the four-day holiday. This superhero adventure's reign at the top may be over quickly, though, with three newcomers hitting theaters this Friday, including Paramount's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Warner Bros.' Me Before You and Universal's Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping arriving in wide release. If our projections are accurate, Ninja Turtles 2 should be the king of them all.

According to Box Office Mojo, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will easily have the widest release this weekend, opening in an estimated 3,800 theaters. Me Before You is slated to open in more than 2,500 theaters, while Popstar is set to open in approximately 2,200 theaters. Me Before You currently »
