Caution: This film contains images and themes such as scantily clad babes, karate-chopping chimps, grandmas getting' it on, deep bong hits, sweet car beds and a lot of dorks playing video games. If any of these things aroused your interest, you are truly sick. Enjoy the movie.
By day, 35 year old alex is the world's oldest video game tester. By night, he is privately developing the next big game for the x-box generation. When one of his roommates spends all the rent mney on filipino hookers, alex is kicked out of his apartment and is forced to live with his grandmother and her friends

Editor's Note
Produced by Happy Madison, Adam Sandler's production company, and written by and starring Allen Covert (a supporting player in several Sandler vehicles), GRANDMA'S BOY is an unapologetic ode to immaturity in 20- and 30-something males that features all of the staples of the genre---beer, bosoms, bongs, video games, and a karate kicking chimp. Covert's script, which revels in its nerdiness, details the plight of Alex, a 35-year-old video game tester who finds himself homeless when he discovers that his roommate has spent the last six months of their rent at a brothel. Left with no other option, he accepts his Grandma Lilly's (Doris Roberts) offer to stay with her and her two roommates--randy Grace (Shirley Jones) and near-catatonic Bea (Shirley Knight)--until he gets back on his feet. Though it seems that this new arrangement will wreak havoc on his highly social, pot-smoking life, and his attempts to romance his boss, Samantha (Linda Cardellini), he finds that closing the generation gap is much easier than expected.

A low-budget ($5 million) relative of popular male-bonding comedies such as OLD SCHOOL, THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN, and WEDDING CRASHERS, GRANDMA'S BOY has a comparable anarchic style which, despite a multitude of gags you wouldn't want to watch with your parents, still seems to have nothing but the best of audience-pleasing intentions. Throw in some great music and several affectionate--and spot-on--skewerings of the geek lifestyle, and you have a classic depiction of arrested development that bears repeat viewings--especially if you're watching it in a dorm room.

Professional Reviews

LA Weekly 7 of 10
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. - Robert Abele

Los Angeles Times 6 of 10
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. - Roger Moore
