Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Knocked Up & The 40-Year-Old Virgin) directs Saturday Night Live breakout Pete Davidson in a bracing comedy about love, loss and laughter on Staten Island. Scott (Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever 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 toward moving forward in life.



  • Kinda predictable

    Besides being kinda predictable, I enjoyed it because I got to see more of Pete Davison’s personal story and was made very well.
  • Terrible

    By Pegilicious
    What a disappointment. I thought it would be more reality based but it’s got actors and actresses in it. Depending on the age of the viewer, it is a terrible example of role modeling. They smoke pot, there is a sex scene, much swearing and mindless low end conversations. All in all a complete waste of $5.99. So glad I didn’t buy it.

    I loved this film. For one, it felt like a film. Watching it reminded me of the first time I saw Garden State or Outside Providence. Two things make this film special. 1. If you know some of the individual actors’ background stories-then u know. I write this on 9/11/20—- PD, I’m so sorry for your loss, no words, only respect—-2. This is still a great film even if you don’t know those background stories. It is funny and sweet and every actor is perfect (!!!!) for their part. Just an awesome film.
