The new comedy-drama from writer-director Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Trainwreck) stars SNL regular and stand-up comic Pete Davidson, who also co-scripted what’s essentially a semi-autobiographical story.

Davidson was a child when he lost his firefighter father in the 9/11 tragedy, and his character Scott Carlin is similarly grappling with the fallout of his dad’s death during a heroic rescue attempt. A stoner with zero self esteem and an unrealistic dream of opening a ‘tattoo restaurant’, he’s left to lament the loss of his dad, his sister’s departure for college, and his mother’s new relationship with a firefighter, which he’s determined to sabotage. A heartfelt and entertaining character study that resonates with truth, this is Apatow’s most dramatic film to date, and Davidson really delivers with a performance that’s both honest and humorous.
