[6.50/10] Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016)

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016)

Quick Review: Though pure satire, built on irony and sarcasm referring to celebrity obsession, it can't help but dealing with the typical cliches for the music industry, whilst strictly following a by-the-numbers story of 'rise and fall', "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping" somehow manages to remain fairly  funny the whole way through, thanks to energy it exudes, and a sharp script full of as much wit as silliness. The mock-doc style and nerdy cast add edginess.

Alex, no clue. I haven't seen "This is Spinal Tap"... :) Haven't heard of it either.
