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

Danny Campbell (Graham Phillips) recounts his last summer on Staten Island before going off to Harvard. He's a summer lifeguard at the kiddie pool with his best friend Frank Gomes (Zack Pearlman). Neither has any luck with girls. Slacker veteran Skootch, tough Mary Ellen, and idiot Anthony are the other lifeguards at the neighborhood pool. Victor is the crazy handyman. Chuck is the hated manager. Then Danny's former babysitter Krystal Manicucci (Ashley Greene) shows up at the pool followed by her overprotective mob boss father.

This is SNL trying to do Superbad. It doesn't really work and the comedy mostly falls flat. I don't think SNL can do nostalgic coming-of-age movie. This could work with sincerity and SNL has non in its bones. This could also try to work as a spoof of such movies and that's what The Lonely Island would do. This tries to split the difference and fails to be either. The lead and his chubby friend are perfectly cast. Mary Ellen and Anthony are fine. It's time that Ashley Greene try a different role or maybe she is trapped by her assets. The others are too SNL. Overall, there are aspects that I like but the whole does not add up.
