Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping Review

Excellent

An astute satire of the pop music business, this raucous mock-documentary is consistently hilarious from start to finish. Some of the jokes are corny, but everything about this movie has a point to make about fame and the music industry. The songs are jaw-droppingly wacky, as is the constant string of big-name cameos. And it's anchored on a riotously funny performance by Andy Samberg.

He plays Connor, formerly one-third of the boy band Style Boyz, alongside his childhood friends Owen (Jorma Taccone) and Lawrence (Akica Schaffer). When Conner decided to go solo, Owen tagged along with him as his deejay, while Lawrence angrily left to become a farmer. But sales of Connor's new album are wobbling, and with 32 people on his personal payroll, he needs to bring in the cash. After a marketing scheme to upload his music to kitchen appliances backfires, he heads out on his Connquest world tour, supported by unhinged singer Hunter (Chris Redd). But Owen thinks that what Connor really needs is to make up with Lawrence, and bring the Boyz back together again.

Samberg is perfect as the too-cute musician who believes all the hype and doesn't have a clue what's really happening around him. Even in his ignorance, Connor is hugely likeable, because he never means to be cruel. This makes his interaction with the people around him thoroughly engaging, and often laugh-out-loud funny, from Sarah Silverman's PR guru to Tim Meadows' enthusiastic manager to Maya Rudolph's kitchen appliance queen. Joan Cusack has some marvellous moments as his dotty mum, while Imogen Poots gets the film's best sequence as the "official" girlfriend he proposes to complete with an ill-advised pack of wolves and live music by Seal. And then there's Justin Timberlake as Connor's singing chef.

I Smile Back Trailer


Laney Brooks seems to be living the American Dream. A beautiful house with two gorgeous children inside and a supportive husband who'll do anything for her. But even this isn't enough to fade the black cloud that continues to hang over her. She is powerless to her own erratic and uninhibited behaviour, losing herself to drug addiction, drinking away each night and spending the night with strangers on a regular basis. Even despite this, she's more scared than your average person might be of losing everything she has, but is reluctant to keep taking her medication and goes against her husband's insistence. She has more personal problems affecting her too, with her estranged father coming back into her life, but this is a demon that she has to battle alone - she just hopes she doesn't lose her family in the meantime.

Ashby Trailer


Ed Wallis has never really been the popular boy in his class and the thought of having to move to a brand new school and start over isn't exactly his idea of fun. Starting over in a new location with his mum, Ed soon becomes an easy target for the class jocks but he doesn't let it bother him. When he's given a new assignment from school to speak with and write an essay on an older person, Ed doesn't know where - or rather who - to turn to, that is until he sees his neighbour might and thinks he might be just the person to speak to.

Though hesitant at the start, the neighbour agrees to speak with Ed. After the duo spend some time together, Ashby and Ed soon open up to one another and form an unlikely friendship. Ashby teaches Ed some much needed life lessons and vice versa.

Ashby was written and directed by Tony McNamara and had its premiere at this year's Tribeca Film Festival. Natt Wolf recently starred in Paper Towns with Cara Delevingne and The Fault in Our Stars alongside Shailene Woodley.

Here She Is, Your SNL Host, Sarah Silverman


Sarah Silverman Maroon 5

Sarah Silverman, comedienne extraordinaire and author of The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee, hosted SNL last night and, in her words, it made “all the sense in the world”. We’ll have to agree on that one. Silverman does a lot of standup and recently got her own HBO special, so her comedic flow is kind of perfect for SNL.

Sarah Silverman
Sarah Silverman was pretty much the perfect voice to bring into the SNL mix.

Silverman took the stage in a mismatched suit and tie and started with a Yom Kipur joke, before going for some audience participation and jumping in a studio guest’s lap for a lengthy heart-to-heart. We’re not picking favorites or anything, but that kind of raised the bar for every SNL host from thereafter.
