After a two-year, sold-out, worldwide tour, Conner4Real (Andy Samberg) is the biggest name in music. Go behind the scenes as Conner faces a crisis of popularity after his sophomore album flops, leaving fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when Conner4Real is no longer the dopest star of all. The hilarious comedy from digital short superstars, The Lonely Island, and blockbuster producer Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Superbad, Knocked Up), is loaded with cameos from the biggest names in comedy and music.

But my expectations were exceeded.
I laughed throughout the entire movie and hoped that TLI never breaks up like The Style Boyz. Not only did I feel like this movie was tailored for their fans, but the boy's sense of humor seems to age like fine wine. I should've known they'd create a soundtrack for the film but it still came as a surprise to me when I arrived home after seeing the film and was able to download the whole album. The Boyz definitely delivered.
I understand some didn't enjoy the film and naturally, it might not be for everyone; many have also compared it to their previous film, Hot Rod, but IMO, they are complete opposite genres and are meant to be different. The film is a mocumentary but with TLI's insane musical creativity, they still manage to make every song sound like it could be an actual hit (IRL).
I give it five because it delivers all you could want from a film like this. The music is catchy, the actors nail their parts, the cameos by musicians are great, the mockery of ridiculous things we've seen in the music industry is entertaining.
If you laugh at Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Office or Parks and Recreation, this is probably up your alley.
I like the mockumentary style concept of this film. It’s stupid but pretty funny and takes aim at the up and coming stars and their massive egos. The cameos were pretty clever and awesome too. Tim Meadows as Conner’s manager. The ones by Emma Stone, Seal, Bill Hader, Justin Timberlake were pretty funny as well. The TMZ parody scene was hilarious as was the “catch phrase” segment.
However, as it happens quite often with mediocre comedies, eventually it just got way too repetitive, stupid, and vulgar and the jokes became old to the point where you just the film to be over. I just don’t think they had enough in the script to fill the basis for the entirety of a full lengthed parody, and so you are left with a film that is hilarious at some points and meh at others.
If you get any enjoyment out of The Lonely Island or enjoyed Hot Rod, do yourself a favor and check this out/pick it up.
