Screener Squad: The King of Staten Island

The King of Staten Island Movie Review


Pete Davidson plays…well, Pete Davidson (ok, fine, “Scott”) in this Judd Apatow comedy(?) about a 20-something loser who uses the death of his firefighter father (well over a decade previously) to get away with acting like a total shit all the time. Thank god Bill Burr, Marisa Tomei, and Bel Powley are in here because our critics (some of them) desperately needed as many breaks from Davidson as the movie would allow. Listen to Chris, Jordan, Adrian, Hunter, and Nathan lose all sympathy in their review.
