What’s It About?
After his album sales plummet, a self-obsessed popstar desperately tries to maintain his A-list status.
Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
I thought Popstar was pretty funny and it made me laugh quite a bit. The style of humor is what you would expect from The Lonely Island crew, whose members wrote, starred and directed this movie: a mockery of modern pop culture (filled with cameos from pop artists themselves!), with catchy music and biting satire that makes you think a little as you’re picking up the popcorn you just spit out. Lonely Island is popular for their clever digital shorts and SNL skits, and I was happy to see their material successfully last the length of a full feature film.
Final Grade: B-
