Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
As I Lay Dying
Absolutely dreadful and offensive comedy.
| Original Score: 1/5
Even if you aren't under the influence, you might find yourself chuckling at various points during the movie, if only in disbelief at some of the things the cast is asked to do.
If nothing else, Grandma's Boy answers the question of what a ramshackle early Adam Sandler movie would be like without Adam Sandler.
| Original Score: D+
Hilarity fails to ensue in the workplace or at home, in spite of the late introduction of a fighting, driving monkey.
better than some sandler movies
| Original Score: 2.5/4
...one puerile, thoroughly unfunny joke after another...
| Original Score: 1/4
The chief value of this stinker is as a glimpse of how bad Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and The 40-Year-Old Virgin might have been if they'd been written by Covert, Barry Wernick and Nick Swardson, and directed by Nicholaus Goossen.
Covert is so obnoxious, so lacking in the basic understanding of comic timing, that we understand why he has to get his buddy Sandler to give him work.
Grandma's Boy is a better series of spoofs than anything we currently see on that show. It's an affectionate and tight-knit comedy.
Those who like America Pie and its spawn will likely find comfort in the jokes here.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Grandma's Boy is what would result if Adam Sandler and his high profile co-stars bailed on a movie and the understudies took over.
| Original Score: F
It's gross, it's cheesy, and it's baked beyond all reasonable limits, but this everything-and-the-kitchen-sink comic soufflé still manages to be goofily entertaining beyond all expectations.
| Original Score: 2/5
"Grandma's Boy" is a pot- and potty-mouthed relative of an Adam Sandler movie.
| Original Score: 2/4
Like the dead kitty left to rot under grandma's couch, this movie stinks!
| Original Score: .5/5
It's plenty stupid, often funny and occasionally pithy. That may add up to a movie you want to see, or it might add up to a movie that will make you ill.
Grandma's Boy isn't as bad as it sounds, but the shame is that there's a lot of potential here for a really good movie that remains unrealized.
[The film] does a very thorough job of reducing every recognizable member of the cast to probable career lows.
| Original Score: D
Sufficiently oddball and the performers sufficiently likable to keep the whole thing from being painful.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Everyone won't love Doris in this crude, boring movie
| Original Score: 2/10
The Sandler-patented mix of the deliberately offensive and the blatantly sentimental loses something in the maestro's absence.
