Did You Know?

Loosely based off of Justin Bieber. Similarities are the pet, Conner4Real has a turtle and for a time Justin Bieber had a monkey, both strange pets. Also there is an Anne Frank reference in the movie and Justin Bieber had controversy in the Anne Frank house by claiming he, "hoped she would have been a belieber." The trailer featuring him playing drums as an infant is exactly like a scene in Justin's movie. They both have tattoos, Usher is promoting them and the slogan on this movie is never stop never stopping and Justin Bieber's movie slogan was never say never. See more »

Rating: 5/10

I saw "Popstar:Never Stop Never Stopping", Andy Samberg-That's My Boy, Hot Rod; Jorma Taccone-Grown Ups 2, Hot Rod; Akiva Schaffer-Neighbors, Hot Rod; Sarah Silverman-A Million Ways to Die In the West, There's Something About Mary and Tim Meadows-The Goldbergs_tv, Grown Ups 2.

This is a mockumentary about a fictional rap group called The Style Boyz. It is written, directed and stars a real group called The Lonely Island-which consists of Andy, Jorma and Akiva-with Jorma & Akiva directing and all 3 writing & starring in it. I guess it could be about a lot of artists in the business but they have said that it is loosely based on Justin Bieber. Andy, Jorma and Akiva grew up together as best buds in a boy band-The Style Boyz-and had minor success, before Andy decided to go the solo route. Sarah and Tim work for Andy in a manager type capacity but Andy doesn't seem to become as popular on his own, as he thought he would be. There are lots of cameos from the music and entertainment world; one of the funniest is Justin Timberlake as Andy's personal chef. Most of the real music cameos will praise Andy and mention how much their lives have been influenced by him. There are a few funny parts but overall, it was like a SNL sketch that went on for a little too long. There is a scene just as the end credits start but nothing at the very end. It's rated "R" for language, drug use and sexual content-including nudity-and has a running time of 1 hour & 26 minutes. It's not one that I would buy on DVD. I don't think I would rent it, either. If you really want to see it, I'd wait until it comes to cable if I were you.
