Storyline Heading
When his new album fails to sell records, pop/rap superstar conner4real goes into a major tailspin and watches his celebrity high life begin to collapse. He'll try anything to bounce back, anything except reuniting with his old rap group The Style Boyz.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Musical - This is a music-filled, sometimes raunchy, always silly comedy aimed at young adults in the vein of the viral digital short films star Andy Samberg and co-stars/directors Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer created for Saturday Night Live. There are appearances by many recognizable actors and music stars, but Samberg is the clear lead, with his two lesser known The Lonely Island partners as his prominent co-stars, and everyone else in more cameo-level roles. Constant language, drug use, and numerous verbal sexual references make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average ... there are peaks and valleys to the movie that are too noticeable. ...it starts to sag at the hour-mark and doesn't get its oomph back for a while. ...what's good about this movie is funny, and refreshing, enough to make the dry spots feel more tolerable in retrospect.

USA Today Full Review
Good Aside from Conner's bromance with his pet turtle Maximus, the trio's core relationship keeps the movie on track while its music veers over the top. The story gets buried amid the sheer onslaught of cameos, but it's hard to ding them too much because they add so much personality to the proceedings.

NY Post Full Review
Average ...even if you find bits of "Popstar” funny, it's likely to seem stale as it goes on. Andy Samberg has some goofy charm as Conner, formerly a member of the boy-band trio Style Boyz and now a solo white-boy hip-hop artist — Conner4Real. I didn't laugh at any of it — except a surreal appearance by Snoop Dogg...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good Above all, Popstar is nonstop party time for fans of the Lonely Island. ...as we watch relationships break and heal, Popstar mixes the hilarity with a surprising amount of heart. 4Real.
