    “Popstar” has more going for it than outrageousness, though it certainly has that. It has genuine outrage, a good-humored but clear-eyed take on today’s pop culture as a morass of corruption, idiocy and relentless self-promotion.

    If you’re in the mood to laugh until various parts of you hurt for a multitude of reasons, then I have a feeling Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping will accomplish the goal. And then some.

    While it also boasts an array of dick jokes (of which there are many, and they are great), it also holds a magnifying glass up to the culture that we’ve all had a hand in creating.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It’s funny because it gets it RIGHT without ever being too mean-spirited.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Lizzie Plaugic

    It’s hard to not forgive Popstar for its flaws, if only because its ambitions are so inherently silly. One senses that Samberg, Taccone, and Schaffer didn’t completely trust that silliness to stand on its own, but it’s only when Popstar reaches for something deeper that it really falters.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Unlike some mock biopics or music documentaries that rely on a particular kind of specificity to succeed, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is universally, gloriously stupid. And that’s not a slight — it takes a considerable amount of smarts to make something that so winningly observes the ridiculous facade of the pop music sphere, but gives it a wide-ranging reach.

  • Forrest Wickman

    It doesn’t matter that the plot is predictable, because it’s merely a means for getting from one precise (and hilarious) musical parody to the next.

    Slate Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    Yes, “Popstar” is dumb, dirty fun. So what’s not to like?

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is a seriously ridiculous put-on. And in this summer of overheated special-effects movies, it’s a cool blast of fresh air.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    A superbly silly sendup of the modern musical landscape, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is as thimble-deep as the throwaway hits it’s satirising, but also just as lively.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    Popstar is filled with the sort of sly jokes whose targets music fans should have no problem recognizing.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    If it’s not exactly unforgettable, it’s still pretty fun.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    "Popstar" is most comfortable with material that simply comes out of nowhere.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    Among the many things it does well — from hilariously quotable lines to catchy, albeit obscene, songs — the mockumentary Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping has found the best use for the poop emoji yet.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Clever, amiable and eager to please, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is the comedy equivalent of the pop-rap star it satirizes, a bit of stupid-smart silliness that offers plenty of pleasure in the moment, even if its amusements last about as long as a snow cone in the sun.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Popstar mixes the hilarity with a surprising amount of heart. 4Real.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    A scene involving wolves upset by Seal’s singing is worth the price of admission all by itself.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    No music mockumentary has really managed to reproduce This Is Spinal Tap’s comic mojo, but Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping gets closer than most to that subgenre-defining comedy’s mix of the dead-on and the over-the-top, even if it tends to go for quantity over quality.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Graphically thinking outside the box, the Lonely Island comedy team makes a decent splash with Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, an SNL spinoff that generally works.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Kenji Fujishima

    The film's lampooning of a business built on pure surface extends to its riotous original songs.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Dan Mecca

    Samberg and company are keen observers of pop culture and every facet of its insanity, doing their very best to out-size that which already feels larger than logic. They don’t always succeed, but when they do, it’s more than worth it.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    The pleasure of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping derives not from the sting or accuracy of its satire (though Will Arnett does a pretty killer Harvey Levin), but from the precision of its timing and the singular comic energy it derives from the talents on display.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    “Popstar” takes aim at everything that is artificial and plastic in contemporary pop in a spirit of love rather than spite. It’s a celebration of the curious authenticity — the innocence, the sweetness, the guiltless pleasure — of music whose badness is sometimes hard to separate from its genius.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Together, the three wheel through absurd gags that shouldn’t work and somehow make them sing, giving the movie a loose, joyous energy.

    Time Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    Popstar feels a bit like elite military snipers shooting fish in a barrel. Their aim is true, but the targets are almost too easy — not to mention awfully familiar.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Watching “Popstar,” there’s no getting around one stubborn truth about this frequently hilarious movie: The incident that may have inspired it was also the incident that rendered it unnecessary.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    This new movie feels more like a series of sketches that all happen to revolve around the same handful of characters. That said, those sketches are fairly funny, and if this comedy has all the depth of a summer jam, it will eventually be the kind of late-night download that will inspire giggles for years to come.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Although this might have been considered cutting edge 20 or 30 years ago, it has been done so often in recent years that it feels a little tired.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Molly Eichel

    Popstar gets to satirize not just music, but also celebrity culture in a way that a movie such as Spinal Tap never could - because, well, the internet and 24-hours news cycle didn't exist in 1984.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    What’s good about this movie is funny, and refreshing, enough to make the dry spots feel more tolerable in retrospect. Full Review
  • Tolly Wright

    In a movie that deals almost exclusively in pals playing pop music and exposed penises, the boyish humor goes a long way. Call it a hit single, but don’t expect it to go platinum.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    When it slows down, when it gives you time to think, Popstar reveals its weaknesses.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    There are laughs found in almost every scene, though not many big ones. There’s also the problem that no amount of parody can top the real thing.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Hard truths: Popstar’s jokes land pillow-soft.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    I’d see a whole film about the adventures of Hader’s desperate-for-transcendence roadie. Unlike Popstar, it might actually go somewhere.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    A movie that sets out to make boy bands look silly. The conceptual error is obvious. There’s low-hanging fruit and then there’s fruit that’s already on the ground, rotting underfoot.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Blake Goble

    A lot of fandom went into this, but Popstar is relentless to the point where it eventually becomes plodding.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Genial, silly, and instantly forgettable, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is just another piece of product from the larger “Saturday Night Live” universe, a way for a former cast member to try to prove he’s capable of carrying a movie.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    It longs to be a close-to-the-bone lampoon in the scathing spirit of Christopher Guest, and it has a few amusing moments, but it’s really a predigested one-joke comedy. It’s less an honest satire than an overscaled satirical package.

    Variety Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The whole movie...feels like an under-developed sketch that goes on for too long.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    There’s a problem with Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. It’s attempting to mock something that is beyond mockery.
