July's Friday Flix in Mother's Backyard (215 S. Grant) is Andy Samberg's 2016 update on the sub-genre established by Spinal Tap.A musical mockumentary, this skewed take on fame is a ludicrously over-the-top, vulgar, silly and smart satire that you could expect from the comedic minds of The Lonely Island.In addition to Samberg, the cast includes a number of SNL alumni and more cameos than your granny's jewelry chest.

"To borrow the film's parlance: It never stops not stopping being funny."

— Max Weiss, Baltimore Magazine

"A legitimate look at celebrity culture delivered in a way that's as funny as it is thought-provoking."

— Anne T. Donahue, Globe and Mail

"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."
