popstar_never_stop_never_stopping_2016_9716502

Andy Samberg is Connor Friel (stage name Connor4Real), popstar formerly of The Style Boyz, and now a solo artist. The film charts his rise and fall, and does so hilariously. Imagine Spinal Tap with an American pop star, or The Office’s David Brent (UK series) as a young singer. Connor believes his own hype and is desperate to hold onto success, but he’s so pathetic about it that that it makes the viewer wince. Make no mistake though, this is a funny, funny movie. Packed with cameos from the likes of Adam Levine, Michael Bolton, Snoop Dogg, and loads more, Connor’s lurching from one bad publicity move to another makes for lots of laughs.
