Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping ★★★★½

Deep in the pocket for this freewheeling absurdity that somehow succeeds at showcasing an awful guy in a way that makes him seem horrible without the movie being unpleasant (despite being WILDLY vulgar), and also somehow also making him likable as an insane monster with zero self awareness?

The range of jokes in this is just unbelievable, too. It's making fun of specific celebrities without ever feeling mean, it's being weird and silly, it's full of bizarre high-concept gags, it's full of incredible clever songwriting in service of being completely stupid and insane. It's not for everybody, but any time I've shown it to somebody it's been a hit.

My favorite gag might be that solid 10 second shot of friendly but submissive Justin Timberlake trying to silently chop a carrot.
