Movie Summary

Nicholaus Goossen
Released:
2006
Rating:
R

Grandma's Boy centers on the antics of Alex, a video game tester who lives with his friend, Josh. When Josh spends all of their rent money on hookers, he and Alex are evicted. After a failed attempt at moving in with a friend, Alex is forced to move in with his grandmother, Lilly. He is assigned household chores, but finds it hard to complete them as Lilly and her friends, Grace and Bea are always distracting him. A series of comedic events involving his grandmother and her friends ensue. As he becomes settled with his new living situation, Alex works on creating a new video game. Meanwhile, he meets a woman named Samantha at work. The two hit off and begin to date. Alex's life seems almost perfect until one day when he throws a party and a jealous co-worker, J.P. decides to get revenge on him.

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Los Angeles Times

    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.

  • 50

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    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.

  • 40

    Variety Ronnie Scheib

    Even Sandler diehards may pass on this mostly derivative paean to compulsive computer geekdom and male sexual dysfunction.
