This has quickly become my all-time favorite movie. I went to see this twice in theatres, and I purchased the DVD as soon as it was available. I just cannot believe how incredibly hilarious this movie is, I'm incapable of putting it into words. My friends and I have a running count of watching this 13 days in a row, sometimes more than once in a day. This movie makes your high infinitely better, if that's even possible.

Grandma’s Boy is hilarious

by on 7/9/2006

This movies is the greatest thing I’ve seen since Jay and Silent Bob Strike. Its got everything a good movie needs drama, a couple of stoners, and a good theme. This is one great movie. It’s fantastic. It’s just all around hilarious. Peter Dante is so awesome. He was great in the movie as well. The whole Madison Team was just hard core. Great movie, Adam and Peter really had there work cut out for them this was overall on a scale of 1 to 10 for a rating it gets a 9 all the actors were brilliant. This is an especially funny movie if you’re a stoner cause than you have a glimpse of what your future beholds.

Editors Note
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.

ReviewSource LA Weekly
Review 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.

Review 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.
