The Lonely Island has its own movie now

Here’s a fun fact: My mom and I have a mutual love of The Lonely Island. She’s a huge fan of Andy Samberg, and watches Brooklyn Nine-Nine religiously (even though I don’t get it). Have you seen his commencement speech at Harvard Law? You should watch it if only to see the expression on all the father’s faces in the audience. Also, can we all agree that Harvard was kind of trolling?

As much as I love him as an actor and “musician”, none of the movies he’s headlined have done very well. Which, hilariously, he sang about at the only redeemable moment during the SNL 40th Anniversary special.

Could Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping be different?

One reason I have more faith in this one is because Judd Apatow is producing. But then I found out it’s being directed by The Lonely Island’s Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.

I want to like it. Just like I want to believe that Samberg is spoofing Macklemore.
