Feel free to recommend any to add to the list.
A movie that proves your never to old to come of age.
Even though he's 35, Alex acts more like he's 13, spending his days as the world's oldest video game tester and his evenings developing the next big Xbox game. But he gets kicked out of his apartment and is forced to move in with his grandmother.
Adiós turd nuggets!
I read in a critics review that "taking a couple beers to the theater won't help with Grandmas Boy. Taking a couple bong rips won't help either."
I have to call bullshit on that one. Experience with both of those before Grandmas Boy (one or the other. Sometimes both) are almost essential. They are almost completely different movies. Not under the influence, Grandmas Boy and its awkward lack of music or pace, clumsily stumbles from one flat joke to the next. But under the influence, everything seems to be filmed through a baggy squinty bloodshot eye. A haze hangs thick in the frames and the laid back pace becomes just kind of like a timeless void for…
Easily my favorite Happy Madison production. Grandma's Boy does a great job of combining the raunch of late 90s/early 2000s movies while still offering up a premise that didn't feel like it had been done to death. Highly rewatchable still, though nowadays I tend to have to take a bit longer of a break before putting this on again, whereas when it came out I could watch it every other day.
Talk about a surprise. Never in a million years did I think I would like this movie. Thumbs up all around, this movie is hilarious.
Dang funny movie with a good plot. Even though it is unrealistic that a hot chick would be playing videogames this was a really good movie. The characters are well written and from start to finish I was into this movie. The pacing is great, the humor is great as well. The acting is good. I love just about every joke in this movie. This movie is hilarious. Absolutely worth a watch.
You're a HOOKER!!!!
Given my mental state, I think I was the target audience. Afterwards I was less impressed.
Should've been unwatched version.

popcorn, story, Linda.C/7
This has a great script -- lowbrow, hilarious stoner comedy -- but the delivery was too awful for too long. Even if I were stoned, having the jokes carefully and precisely read every time would still feel condescending.
You're a HOOKER!!!!
One of the worst, most offensive movies I've ever had the displeasure of watching.
One of my favourite stoner films, and one that doesn't often feature in lists. Having not actually seen Cardellini in anything other than Freaks & Geeks, I do enjoy seeing her face when I watch this, but its pre-Katy Perry video Joel David Moore who steals this film, as the fantastically weird JP.
For a full-blown Vince Vaughan schlubby nightmare, which no-one in their right mind should ever seek, Grandma's Boy is definitely up there among his worst movies.
