Why I watched this one? Though not a musical at all....this movie looked interesting.
What is this one about? When it becomes clear that his solo album is a failure, a former boy band member does everything in his power to maintain his celebrity status. In other words....this is a mockumentary.
Why thoughts on this one? A surprisingly very funny movie. I am shocked that I liked the movie as much as I did. Kudos to Adam Samberg. The songs are funny....Samberg plays the entire movie straight....which is very very funny. The situations in the movie are outrageous in a strange way believable. Funny from beginning to end....plus it is filled with some pretty impressive cameos. Final thought: Can't believe I am writing this....but it is worth checking out.
