The King of Staten Island ★★★½

Finally got to this one  - it’s nice to slip back into a studio comedy by folks who’ve been around the block. One where I’d almost rather see the movies centered around the other characters (Burr, Tomei, Powley, Arias, etc), but Davidson & Apatow seems to know that and are happy to let the ensemble shine to fill out this world.

Feels like one to happily revisit, catch in pieces, with the potential to grow - which I couldn’t say for Judd’s prior two. Hope it’s not 5 years for his next one and hope I can see it with a full, game audience.
