Maybe you never heard of Conner4Real, the hip-hop phenom played by Andy Samberg in Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Yeah, well, maybe you should kiss his ass. Connor4Real, created by Samberg and the Lonely Island gents, is one of the rare originals in this summer's nonstop attack of the clones. I'm getting a bad vibe from Tarzan, Ben-Hur and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pretending they're not past their sell-by date. This guide is a search for intelligent life and rowdy fun in the universe of prequels, sequels and retreads.
