(2020) (Pete Davidson, Marisa Tomei) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: An aimless young man finds his unemployed, live-at-home life disrupted when his long-widowed mom begins dating a firefighter.
Scott Carlin (PETE DAVIDSON) is a 24-year-old man who still lives at home with his long-widowed mother, Marge (MARISA TOMEI), and teenage sister, Claire (MAUDE APATOW), who's about to head off to college. Still traumatized by the death of his firefighter father seventeen years ago, Scott doesn't have a job -- but is hoping to land an apprenticeship at a local tattoo parlor -- and spends most of his time getting high with his friends -- Oscar (RICKY VELEZ), Richie (LOU WILSON), and Igor (MOISES ARIAS) -- when not sleeping with but not committing to his "friend with benefits" Kelsey (BEL BOWLEY).
One day, while hanging with his friends, nine-year-old Harold (LUKE DAVID BLUMM) shows up, says he wants a tattoo, and then screams in pain and runs away when Scott starts on his arm. That draws his divorced father, Ray Bishop (BILL BURR), to Marge's house in anger, but that initially antagonistic meeting quickly segues into romance, much to Scott's shock and disgust. And that's not only due to the hostile way they met, but also the fact that Ray is a firefighter at the local firehouse commanded by Papa (STEVE BUSCEMI).
Things go from bad to worse for Scott when Ray gets him to escort Harold and his younger sister, Kelly (ALEXIS RAE FORLENZA), back and forth to their separate schools each day, something that initially worries Ray's ex, Gina (PAMELA ADLON), but since both she and Scott hate Ray, she figures the young man can't be that bad. With Ray and Marge's romance deepening, and despite his new responsibilities, Scott sets out to ruin the relationship leading to unexpected developments and the chance for him to grow as a man.
