“I didn’t really relate to that song, cos you know, I had different things in my Jeep than he had in his Jeep.”
What’s it about?
You know how Scary Movie was to horror films? It’s basically like that but for Justin Bieber documentaries.
Who’s in it?
The Lonely Island, Sarah Silverman, Imogen Poots, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph and Jay from The Inbetweeners (The good version, not the US one) as a Jared Leto lookalike.
Why should I watch it?
+ Big fan of mockumentaries (most of my favourite shows are mockumentaries) so that’s one big tick straight away
+ While Deadpool takes the piss out of comic book movies, this movie takes the piss out of the music industry
+ But not in a mean spirited way, you laugh with them and not at them
+ Like how it plays on something that mimics real life too, with Andy Samberg being the most popular out of the trio
+ It’s just funny how these songs are taken seriously
+ To be fair, they are pretty catchy though
+ Can’t stop listening to I’m so Humble
+ Funny cameos from musicians was a nice touch, makes it feel more real
+ Well played to them for playing along
+ Especially from Nas, his line about things in his Jeep killed me
+ Small cameo from Emma Stone and Andre from The League
+ TMZ parody (after researching TMZ, I thought they were just a website, didn’t know they have a TV show as well)
+ Thought Justin Timberlake as the chef was hilarious
+ Stage manager narrating contemplation scene cracked me up
+ Great chemistry between the group, it’s like they’re friends in real life or something
+ Like the overall message of friendship and not being a dick when you’re on top
+ Also highlights our obsession with celebrities, you can kinda understand why they have mental breakdowns
Why shouldn’t I watch it?
– That dick shot caught me off guard, didn’t think they would go there
– Must be like how girls feel when they receive unexpected dick pics
– Also, this is what I’ve been telling people man
– If you have a good beat, people don’t care what you’re singing about
– Think it’s quite easy for artists to borrow beats from producers, because people will like it regardless (Source: someone who can’t sing)
– For example: the beat for Where Are U Now or Sorry, Jack U or Skrillex could’ve had anyone singing over it and it would still be a smash hit
– That’s why I like and respect Kanye West for his music because he actually produces as well, so it’s all him
– Don’t get me wrong though, he’s a still a massive douchebag
Wasn’t expecting much from this movie (didn’t really even know what to expect to be honest) but as you can tell from my adjective use, it was surprisingly good. Even if you’re not a fan of The Lonely Island, this satire will make you laugh 4 real.
