The King of Staten Island review: "Pete Davidson lacks the charm to make an insufferable protagonist likeable"

Judd Apatow’s latest as a director, The King of Staten Island, was one of many 2020 movies due a theatrical debut, before the ongoing effects of Covid-19 saw it pivot to a ‘premium’ (i.e. expensive) rent-at-home release. Multiplexes haven’t missed out: it’s impossible to imagine this lacklustre dramedy sparking much interest at the box office.

The writer/director and producing powerhouse has a track record for launching talent, from turning Steve Carell into a movie star in The 40-Year-Old Virgin to establishing Seth Rogen’s leading man credentials in Knocked Up. Most recently, in 2015, he kicked off Amy Schumer’s big-screen career with Trainwreck, a problematic romcom that still scored its fair share of laughs (and made Schumer an instant big-screen player).
