Reviews: The King of Staten Island (2020)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …it runs a bit long (and feels it), but Davidson effortlessly carries his character study nestled within a community portrait. This isn’t a laugh-a-minute comedy, instead a dramedy where tattoos both artful and inelegant draw the biggest guffaws.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: It is Judd Apatow’s most affecting film in recent memory, and it cements Pete Davidson as a star.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: A comedy of real substance.
  • [New] | Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: The film takes a long time to get there, but it’s not short on the laughs and the amount of heart required.
  • Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: Although this comedy-drama starring one of our favorite SNL regulars failed to evoke much laughter from my husband and me, we both appreciate the humanity and hope the film offers.
