Popstar: Never Stop Popping is a satirical comedy about a Popstar named Connor who gets huge over night, only to watch his popularity plummet with his latest album.

Popstar stars Andy Samberg in the title role of the popstar. He plays a well spoken yet oblivious character. He does it well, making us believe in his character, even if the things they do with him aren't that interesting. It feels like a weaker version of This Is Spinal Tap or What We Do In The Shadows. The whole crew is really trying here, there are a lot of familiar faces of comedy on display, but they just don't seem to have anything to say other then "Justin Bieber's an idiot."

Other than a few good gags, and a decent performance from Samberg, there's not much to recommend here. Skip this guy unless you're a big Samberg fan.
