    Sandler crony Allen Covert, the star, producer and co-writer of this stunted-adolescence classic, hilariously explores a previously untapped nexus of stoner humor, joystick geekdom, elderly women and a martial arts-taught chimp.

    It's as aimless and pointless as a joke told while stoned. There are some pretty decent shock-laughs, often provided by Jones, who hasn't ever been this nasty.
  3. It cheerfully invites the audience to descend to their level, where no joke is too silly or raunchy, and a plot is just a way of passing time between game levels and bong hits.

    The sex, fart, and pot jokes come so fast and furious that a white flag seems the most appropriate response.
  5. An Adam Sandler movie without Adam Sandler, it turns out, is not necessarily an improvement.

    Grandma's Boy aspires to nothing more than the frathouse goofiness and juvenile high spirits of early Sandler vehicles, but it possesses the energy of a funeral dirge played at half-speed.

    This is one of those movies where you stay rooted in your seat just to see how bad it can really get.

    Much funnier than I thought. It's one of those really weird movies: it's probably the worst movie I've seen - and yet one of Much funnier than I thought. It's one of those really weird movies: it's probably the worst movie I've seen - and yet one of the more humourous ones. Crazy! I mean - the acting, plot, storyline...absymal. But the jokes you get off it - "Frankenstein weed" - you will laugh. Hard. Definately one of those movies you'll watch at home once every year, but enough to have in the collection. Expand

    It is worth seeing, NIck Swardson if very funny, the dance scene is hilarious.

This film features several of the actors that take supporting roles in his film. I did not have high hopes for this movie from the outset because the acting looked weak with characters generally known for smaller roles playing pivotal parts, but it gets better as it goes. There are a few components of the film that get repeated a little too much but the characters are funny even though the movie lacks much conflict in the third act. If you are looking for a film that will make you laugh but not do much more then Grandma's Boy could be for you. Expand
