KING OF STATEN ISLAND is a US comedy drama in which an immature stoner is forced to confront his issues when his widowed mother begins a new relationship.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language (‘c**t’) and frequent use of strong language (‘f**k’, ‘motherf**ker’, ‘c**ksucker’). Milder terms include ‘pussy’, ‘bitch’, ‘dick’, ‘cock’ and ‘prick’, as well as use of the rude ‘middle finger’ gesture. There is also infrequent use of discriminatory terms including ‘fruit’ and ‘pansy’; the work as a whole does not condone discrimination.

Drugs

People are frequently shown smoking weed. Drug references include scenes in which people deal or steal pills.

Sex

A man is shown vigorously thrusting into a woman from behind while she moans loudly. Infrequent strong sex references include verbal references to ‘coming’.

Violence

People watch a horror film on TV in which a character is shot, creating a large spray of blood. There are further bloody images, including brief close-up sight of a bleeding wound, after a man is attacked off-screen.

There are infrequent, non-graphic comic references to child sex abuse. Other issues include occasional non-graphic references to depression and bereavement.
