The King of Staten Island (2020)
Critic Consensus: The King of Staten Island's uncertain tone and indulgent length blunt this coming-of-age dramedy's ability to find itself, but Pete Davidson's soulful performance holds it together.

Critic Reviews for The King of Staten Island
If you're prepared to give Davidson a chance, Apatow's entertainment instincts and a well-chosen supporting cast are enough to ensure the film never becomes an outright drag.
Viewers familiar with Davidson's role as a similar good-natured yet immature loafer in 2019's Big Time Adolescence may find the typecasting unoriginal, but the fact of the matter is this: it's a type Davidson shines in.
The King of Staten Island is more than a run-of-the-mill genre movie. It is a brutally honest, first-person account of what can happen to a family when tragedy strikes.
In the latter half of the film, Apatow finally starts to home in on the point of his tale, and that's when The King of Staten Island becomes compelling and moving.
I don't feel like this is the lightning in a bottle magic that some of [director Judd Apatow's] films have been... But it's enjoyable, if too long.
