Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man appears as Konko the Ice Cream man. Method Man and his fellow Wu members hail from New York, some from Staten Island specifically. The Wu members reference Staten Island in several songs and have nicknamed the borough as Shaolin. Method Man also supplies the hook on the song "Ice Cream" off of the album "Only Built for Cuban Lynx" by fellow Wu member Raekwon. See more »


When the NYPD officer gives the Glock handgun to the female party goer (at the pool party) he states, "It's safe, the safety is on." Then proceeds to manually "click" on the safety. Glocks do not have external safety toggle switches of any kind. See more »

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

Not bad - just not really good
14 August 2015 | by jessewillmanSee all my reviews

Staten Island Summer is a very generic teen movie. It has a cheesy plot line, a very specific audience that will enjoy it, and some humor inserted into it that some find funny, while others hate it.

It is a movie that, like nearly every other teen movie, has a character battling through his late teens. Women, sex, and friendships are all a huge part of the movie.

Regardless of all previously mentioned, I still did not find Staten Island Summer to be a bad movie. It had its moments. There were a lot of foreseeable things that you might notice very early on in the movie, but you still have some things that you might not expect. There are a couple of genuinely funny scenes, although a couple of them own a rather blunt taste of humor that at least did not make me really laugh.

For fans of teen movies, Staten Island Summer is a good choice, although there are many better. It is best described as a rather lame and not as funny version of American Pie, but some might really enjoy the humor - and some might actually find the plot to be good.
