It's not as funny as Spinal Tap (which film is?), but there are still a fistful of laugh-out-loud moments.

This comedy's not exactly groundbreaking, and all the celeb cameos are a bit of a comedy humblebrag, but there are some reasonably sized laughs here ...

When the biggest laugh of your entire movie is a Ringo Starr ad-lib, you know it's time to go back and hit that drawing board real hard.

Made with good cheer, it's consistently funny and never overstays its welcome.

It quickly becomes evident that this expensive-looking feature is an overextended Saturday Night Live digital short that would have worked better on the small screen.

It turns out rising from fame and falling from it make for equally good material.

Popstar doesn't quite reach This Is Spinal Tap levels of satire (few things could), but as a send-up of the mores of today's celebrity-obsessed culture, it largely succeeds.

Star Andy Samberg & Co. are at their best when they're deadpanning as addlepated celebrity man-children whose vision of the good life involves the getting of ways and the indulging of whims.

Too often ... it feels lazy and derivative and it's difficult to recommend something that, despite offering a few solid laughs, is instantly forgettable.

The snort-laughs are as regular as a metronome, and a third of them are jabs at Justin Bieber

The result is not without misses. But as with any pop star, what you'll remember are the hits.
June 3, 2016
A legitimate look at celebrity culture delivered in a way that's as funny as it is thought-provoking.
June 3, 2016
As a satire of modern pop stardom, "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping" could use a little more pop.
June 3, 2016
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.

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

Front and center, carrying the film, is Samberg in what is easily the most winning film performance of his career.

It's bright, affectionate, and so keyed into our particular pop moment that it all but hurls itself into a time capsule.
June 2, 2016
Even if you find bits of "Popstar" funny, it's likely to seem stale as it goes on.
June 2, 2016
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.
June 2, 2016
Although at slightly less than 90 minutes the film seems too long, it's an impressive showcase for Samberg's oddly endearing brand of comic cluelessness.
