A movie that proves you're never too 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.
Saying that something is not as bad as everyone says it is is faint praise. Nonetheless, Nicholaus Goossen's "Grandma's Boy" is not as bad as everyone says it is. The Happy Madison production revels in low-brow humor and questionable performances, but it is funny and sweetly good-natured. It may all be mediocre at best, but it is not less than watchable.
Happy Madison stalwart Allen Covert stars as a gaming programmer forced to move in with his grandmother when his original living situation goes south. From there, a blend of stoner, juvenile, and somewhat romantic comedy bubbles forth. None of it is necessarily smart, but it is strangely upbeat and legitimately funny.
The production is energetic, and Goossen's cast does…
I have seen this one of bunch of times. Not lately, but I have to put a date so today's as good as any.
This dude will forever be named "Sammy" for me. Also, this movie rules. And I don't even smoke or game.
Who wants to hear about my STD from the silent film era?
It's like an Adam Sandler movie without Adam Sandler, so it already has a huge advantage over most Adam Sandler movies.
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…
Grandma's Boy is a pretty generic and forgettable comedy, but it does have some good moments, even if they aren't enough to make up for the rest of the film.
It's not often I stumble upon a comedy which I will hold in high regards like Billy Madison, Tommy Boy and other hilarious films from my childhood but Grandma's Boy acts as a farewell letter to that golden era. Hilarious in even the simplest things, the main actors here are usually relegated to side jobs in Sandler's films and it's clear these guys may just be the real stars.
Its bad when Adam Sanders production company makes its funniest movie (meaning everything after happy Gilmore) without him and its still just alright.
It wanted so much to be hilarious, I'm sorry it couldn't quite fulfill its comic destiny. Poor little movie.
The script writers have no grasp of the basic requirements of comedy.
Probably my favorite comedy - ever.
Recommended by Elizabeth. Fun pot movie
A good Happy Madison Productions movie
this was my shit in middle school for some reason
Here's the thing. I know Grandma's Boy is a deeply stupid film with some uncomfortable moments of classically obnoxious Happy Madison humour, but I still love the hell out of it. It brings to mind that brief period of time when Adam Sandler made genuinely funny movies (he's not in this, by the way, but his regulars are and his brand is all over it). There's nothing resembling a plot. Its moment of conflict comes out of nowhere and is resolved hysterically quickly. This is a film only interested in jokes, and it pounds them out relentlessly. Not everything hits, but when it does it's hilarious — the dead cats under grandma's couch, Joel David Moore's snotty breakdown, basically everything Nick Swardson says. A simple, almost mindless, film that meets my simple, definitely mindless, needs.
This is a 5/7 movie.
Lots of laughs, had a good time. Would watch again.
Arcades and arcade games in film.
