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.
The pleasure of "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping" derives not from the sting or accuracy of its satire ... but from the precision of its timing and the singular comic energy it derives from the talents on display.
Crammed full of sly jokes and pitch-perfect song parodies (not to mention a staggering roster of surprise cameos), Popstar careens along, delivering far less abstract laughs than the trio's previous cinematic venture, 2007's Hot Rod.
It's when Popstar lampoons the specifics of modern-day pop materialism (awkward social media endorsements, over-sharing, an obsession with branding and catchphrases) that it finds its most inspired gags.
