Did You Know?
- Steve Buscemi was a New York City firefighter before becoming an actor. In November 2000, Buscemi told Salon interviewer Stephen Lemons that he was with Engine 55 in Manhattan's Little Italy for four years in the early 1980s. He took acting classes after about a year on the job, and stayed with the FDNY while acting in plays and movies. Buscemi quit firefighting in 1984 to pursue acting full-time. After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, he returned to his old fire station to help search for survivors in the rubble of the World Trade Center.

Atom User Reviews
The King of Staten Island is nothing if not conventional in its arc and themes, and has some of the usual Apatow aggravations, but it's winning: relaxed, generous, suffused with warmth and a surprisingly delicate sorrow.
At 137 minutes, The King of Staten Island is a long movie, but not too long. I never got bored or wanted Apatow to wrap things up. If anything I wanted to spend more time with some of the supporting characters, particularly Bel Powley as Scott’s longtime friend (turned occasional hookup partner) Kelsey.
It has a loping, lowkey charm and doesn’t require too much of your attention, and the plot is predictable enough that you could miss substantial chunks of it and not lose your way. You’re in the passenger seat, and it’s a nice ride as long as you don’t care where you’re going.
