Quotes

[first lines]
Danny Campbell: [narrating] I grew up in Staten Island New York. It might not sound like it, but I did. For those of you who don't know, Staten Island is like Brooklyn and New Jersey had a baby. A baby that would up to be either a cop, or a fireman. And you know, some how it gets a bad rap, but really it's just like any other suburb. I mean, sure it looks like this

You're typical summer comedy, done in Staten Island!?
28 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What I loved most about this movie is the fact that it has the feel of a teen comedy about the beach, but despite the fact that the Island has a beach, they used a pool.

It has a feel of a teen comedy, despite the fact that most of the supporting cast were around when the 80s films this movie pays homage to came out.

But the whole supporting cast was funny, being some of Saturday Night live's best new talent(Cecily Strong and Bobby Moynihan) and a few alums(Fred Armisen and Will Forte). Also being produced by the guy who created SNL, Staten Island Summer is like the big sketch they could not pull off on a sound stage.

It's the age old tale of two boys trying to spend their last summer together before college trying to get laid, but set in a place nobody would have thought to set any movie, and pulls nothing back on what the Island is all about (Even including a role for Wu Tang's Method Man, a native of Shaolin)

Absolutely funny.
