The King of Staten Island

The King of Staten Island Summary and Synopsis

Scott (SNL's Pete Davidson) has been a case of arrested development since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He's now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister (Maude Apatow, HBO's Euphoria) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother (Oscar®-winner Marisa Tomei) and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with his buddies and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey. When his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter, it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps towards moving forward in life.

Cmon Judd.

- Judd, C’mon man!1 star

If this was $9.99, you’d have doubled your sales! Have you lost touch so much that you forgot who your audience is? At least make it able to purchase at that price! Seriously you’re basically gouging your fans. It’s been a month so please stop bleeding your fans in isolation. Judd you’re becoming what you used to hate.

Time to bring the price down🙏🏽

- Ariana Fans Are Pressed5 star

The only people giving it a 1 star are Ariana’s fans here to ruin Pete’s movie. It’s honestly very good, really got me thinking about my own life. It made me cry, made me laugh, but most of all made me grateful for my dad. This movie was amazing.❤️

- Crazy1 star

No one should ever have to pay 19.99 to just watch a movie.

- Awesome and Funny5 star

I have always wanted to see what Pete Davidson could do, and this movie is great. I think it’s pretty much because he was playing himself, but I hope this means that we can expect to see him doing more things. This is a really solid movie it’s funny, tragic, and has a lot of heart. The characters are great, and it’s rewatchable.

- Amazing Moivie5 star

Plot, timing, back-story, realistic yet dark firefighter family dynamic....wish there was an option to buy because this would be played again and again.

I would totally watch this movie but I’m not paying $20 for it.

- Hilarious with heart5 star

Loved this movie...I’ve watched it so many times. The story is honest and relatable and the cast is amazing. I laughed, I cried, and then I laughed more!

- Not what I expected but better5 star

Thought it would be mostly comedy but they surpassed that with the ending it was more! This movie is a thumbs up. I don’t mind the $19.99 price I would’ve spent well over that at the movie theater.

- Lay off the drugs1 star

$19.99?!?!?! “THANKS A LOT _________ !!!” (insert name of whoever is president @ the time you’re reading this)

- Overpriced1 star

I would have bought this but I ain’t spending $20 for a rental! That’s crazy!

- Great5 star

i enjoyed this movie, although it wasn't a comedy

- Funny5 star

Good movie it was funny. It was 20 to rent but that’s because it’s suppose to be out i theatres and they aren’t Open due to Covid so 20 bucks to rent it I said and she ran it would be to go to the movies and actually watch it so I didn’t mind the 20 bucks.

- Hi5 star

I haven’t seen this yet, I just got bored and wanted to write something. Hello!

- Forgettable3 star

There were some decent laughs, and it was entertaining enough that the three of us watching stuck through it, but the writing was kind of clunky and certain characters, like Pete Davidson’s mom, were under-developed.

- Worth the $$$5 star

This movie was so good. It’s light hearted and comical. Easily my favorite movie from 2020.

- What a let down.1 star

Movie was pretty good. But was such a dead end.

- Hello!5 star

Where is my review that I keep writing and keep posting over and over again?!? I’m just being real here. Welp... anyway.. I liked the movie.

- Waiting for lower rent price1 star

Okay, it usually costs about $10-12 USD where I live to purchase a movie ticket. This is a little over-priced for me.

- Rent? $20!!!1 star

Hells nahh! I’ll wait till it drops...

- Amazing5 star

Funny movie

- 😂phenomenal5 star

good job pete

- Crazy1 star

Why 19.99 rent lol not worth it for this movie

- Hilarious5 star

Great movie!

- $19.99 to rent!1 star

Whatever genius came up with this idea needs to be fired! Will wait to find a f_r_e_e t-o-r-r-e-n-t of it online now. Thanks.

- What a letdown1 star

Except for Steve Buscemi’s tiny side part that paid homage to his history as an actual firefighter, it was mostly trash. I kept expecting the characters to arc well. They did not. I also expected the comedy to improve. It did not.

- Funny as hell5 star

Great flick

- Just what I needed5 star

Movie was excellent! Pete keep going on The Howard Stern Show!

- Great5 star

Pete did a great job. Movie was semi base on his life and well acted and done.

- Great movie night5 star

Hits all emotions great watch

- Watch out4 star

Watch out Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, Dave Chapelle, Chris Farley, and John Belushi! Comedy has a new name!! With acerbic jocularity mixed in with raw sensuality, Pete Davidson makes George Clooney and Will Smith look gunshy when asked to take lead. Nothing short than a cinematic triumph!

- 20 rent...4 star

Personally love because it has my sis humor I personally do not like 20 rent thoughWhy not just make it $20 to buy for $25 to buy other movies have done this universal goddamnit

- 19.99 rental ?’!’1 star

19.99 to rent ???????????

- King of Staten Island Review5 star

I loved and enjoyed this film. Judd Apatow did a phenomenal job at this movie and should deserve an award. Pete Davidson played a great character and was very funny. I just wish it was a movie original on a streaming app or the price to be dropped down to $5.99. But overall great film.

A little long, but the movie was quite good. I liked the story, characters were very likeable.... interesting to see Pete Davidson as the lead. He did a good job

Thegeneraljay - He coulda have been better. Lol4 star

Good work b

Satchmocoltrane - Not worth the $201 star

Pete Davidson basically plays himself. Bill Burr kills his part though. This movie is a 99 cent rental at best.

saltyboi666 - Incredible!5 star


Alvin James P Oogak - Great Comedy Guy Actor5 star

I rather buy it right now instead of renting the movie...

thatlocalghost - Vulnerable, hilarious, heartfelt5 star

I absolutely loved this film. It's such an honest portrayal of the complexities of grief and how it affects how you move through life, as well as an great depiction of mental illness. This movie was truly one of a kind,, and Pete Davidson was vulnerable, hilarious and real. Please watch this.

Blokker - Don't waste your money on this.1 star

This movie is just crap I can't believe we watched this. I would recommend everyone save the 20.00 buy something better.... You will thank me

BillyIdolRocks - Thumbs Down1 star

Just the fact that Pete Davidson's playing in it is saying something. He's not funny, he's not a good actor.

Rexx0rz - Fantastic!5 star

Likyoon#1331 - Boring & slow1 star

It had its funny moments. Very slow moving. Better than I could do though lol

CARRIGE - Wanna See But Not To Rent For $20.001 star

Wanna See but $20.00 to RENT To much make It 4.99 to Rent & Possibly $19.99 To BUY Not Gonna Spend $20.00 to have it for 2 Days Thats BS

spynewz007 - Pretty good, though not great!4 star

Definitely a good film—though it’s actually more of a drama with a lot of funny moments. Pete is good. While all three of the main women characters: Maude Apatow—and especially Bel Powley and Marisa Tomei—are great!! A lot of fun gags underneath a very serious story about a young, emerging adult and his loving, long-suffering mother trying to move on amid the deep scars of major loss. Apatow wrangles Davidson’s real-life Staten Island world into a complex, funny drama utilizing his typical, capable guiding hands.

ilovetlj - AMAZING!5 star


awesometowntx - The Soundtrack Even Sucked1 star

You have to go pretty far for a Judd Apatow film to be completely horrible on all accounts. This waste of time went above and beyond that call with the worst lead actors, pointless storyline and managed to walk away with one of the worst soundtracks in history. I’m very confused how Pete Davidson is considered an actor and landed this part. He made the entire movie an endless bad middle school party where you can’t get away from that one annoying dude that’s liked you since 1st grade.

Pdenny7319 - Great Movie4 star

Funny, sad, and overall fantastic.

I eat books - Terrible1 star

20 for a rental is stupid. iTunes, you are not offering a movie theater experience. You are just capitalizing (as usual) on the suffering of the working class without giving anything back.

tokyorun - $19.99 to rent a movie?1 star

Poor choice in pricing. And I’m unlikely to rent it even when the price comes down.

tyranasoraus - Woah!!!5 star

loved it ! epic & great film it’s very real & the way it portrays all of that . i love that about it . great job 💯

joanyangel - We Love This Movie!5 star

This was such a great movie! We all loved it and when it comes available to purchase, we are going to buy it as well. Pete Davidson is so funny and all of the cast members makes the movie one of the best we've seen in a long time! Awesome that it's dedicated to his father too! Also, 4 of us seeing the movie for only 20.00 is way better than what it would cost at the theater!

tcpayton - Loved this movie5 star

This movie was so worth the money to rent. If you cant take dry humor then dont even watch it but it was so funny for those who can. Def watch!!

StoningFan - Loved it5 star

Best movie I’ve seen in a while, funny and got me in a way I didn’t expect

Obsessed with Fifty Shades - $20?1 star

You’re ripping people off what the hell? I’m surprised so many people bought this

Anonymous7395 - Horrible movie1 star

This movie is not funny at all and very boring.

FourUnderFour - Funny and Emotional5 star

Pete Davidson does a great job in this movie. It does not disappoint.

Haley3175 - Awesome5 star

If you’re mad about the format of the movie you clearly don’t know how and indie/ coming of age movie works.

Carlxundead - I don’t know about these other reviews5 star

It was a good distraction from everything going on in the world right now and I would recommend!

Whip hater - I like it5 star

I just feel like this movie was worth the money. I totally want to buy it to keep.

Meagan Trippleton - awesome movie5 star

I loved this movie and I thought it was really good

Wldcatt - Not bad.3 star

Not a bad movie. Not great. Well made but very long. Lots of Pete Davidson.. I know it's his story but not the most interesting story. Kind of like an elevated hallmark movie.

165795118 - 19 to rent1 star

I’ll pass

Missy198098 - LOVED this movie!5 star

Went into watching this movie only because I love Bill Burr but I ended up loving it.

420timekeeper - Another RT delight1 star

This movie is as stupid as the morons starring in it. It’s an SNL alum though, so be sure to skew the critiques high RT. Pathetic.

skyskyohmy - Amazing!5 star

A must watch! Funny, heart warming, and who doesn’t love Pete Davidson!!

Yenores - I can review this even if I have not watched it!!!1 star


Dina220 - No way2 star

I love the main character but that’s completely insane to rent a movie for $20 that’s not even the price I spend for movie tickets..

aaronalmendarez32 - The truth2 star

The movie was decent it wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great, one thing I will for sure say is it isn’t worth 20.00 to own for 48 hours

Green Tee 🍵 - Terrible1 star


technothomas - Not worth the price2 star

Some parts were funny and touching, but when you think it’s gonna go somewhere with the plot, it just ends. NOT worth 20$

Chanti2 - what a waste of 19.99 huge disappointment!1 star

I saw the marketing all excited about a new movie for a Friday night watch...paid the 19.99 and was SO DISAPPOINTED! HORRIBLE AND STUPID.....I wish there was a zero star rating

4rmobservation - Everything want to hate but absolutely love5 star

Don’t be a mook rent the movie

JCar2007 - One of the best of the year so far5 star

Stop complaining about the price. In a couple months it’ll be cheaper and a couple months after that it’ll be even cheaper. Don’t let the price be the reason you give it a bad review. It’s an excellent film. A funny and heartwarming story about dealing with the loss of a parent, depression and trying to find your way in the world. 2 thumbs way up. It may not be for everyone.

Skyler Hammond - Y’all are retards5 star

The fact no one understands it’s $19.99 because it’s a theater release. You’d pay for probably two tickets(unless you’re a loner) to go see a movie in theaters, right? Or you all are really that dumb? Funny movie regardless. 😂🤦‍♂️

First bank account - Snoring1 star

Omg I was waiting for this to come out for a while now and it was a complete bore fest , waist of $20 to rent very drawn out and boring not even a good story line overall do not waist your money , I am constantly renting and buying all new releases on iTunes and this was one of the most boring and disappointing ones plz take it from me wait for it to come on nextflix for free

Big Time Crusher - Amazing5 star

I love everything about the movie and Pete is an adorable and funny actor and I just loved to see his character grow and learn a bit from his mistakes.

cru116 - Worth Every Penny5 star

Excellent movie. I loved every minute of it. It’s funny, sweet and real.

Homie Mcfly - Stop leaving 1 star for the price!5 star

Y’all are dumb for that. Good movie tho.

funmoviefun - One of the best movies I’ve seen in awhile5 star

I’m usually not the biggest fan of Pete Davidson but this movie is such a good mixture of drama, comedy and family. In the first ten minutes I was laughing out loud. Watched it twice in the same night. Would 10/10 recommend this movie. Worth every cent.

Htownplaya22 - Awesome movie!5 star

Watched it as a family it’s long but a great movie.

nyctelecaster - So Formulaic -Does an App write this stuff?2 star

Good performances by all but "The King..." was a cut from the “indie film” cookie cutter. Synopsis - Family tensions and life choices begin to implode … but wait! The main character goes through a significant revelatory change. Family tensions subside. Real love is found. Who is writing this stuff? An App??

nature23 - Get a hooker instead1 star

20$ lol
