User Reviews

Great movie if you love Lonely Island!
18 June 2016 | by destinychroniclesSee all my reviews

If you understand Lonely Island you will love this movie. It may not be for everyone, however I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. If you don't know what Lonely Island is google them and watch them on youtube. This movie perfectly set the stage for a world were the lonely island crew had massive fans, but in reality their fanbase is rather small.

Still the movie has massive laughs, the references are on point, and some of the songs are actually pretty good parodies of other genres.

I give the movie a solid 9 out of 10. If I wasn't a Lonely Island fan I would still give it at least a solid 7. It's entertaining and fun, and a nice divergence from the Super Hero dominated world we have today.
