Popstar: Never Stop, Never Stopping (15)

Comedy, Music

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.

The critical consensus

An absolute blast, with a frenetic strike-rate and songs that will worm their way into your ears for days. Like Conner, this comedy’s for real.
