The sex, fart, and pot jokes come so fast and furious that a white flag seems the most appropriate response.

Absolutely dreadful and offensive comedy.

So filled with untapped laughs, potentially interesting sub-plots and fails in every single aspect in a mostly laughless stoner comedy.

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.

Grandma's Boy isn't just a movie, it's a weapon of mass destruction. Audiences across the country should run for cover.

Hilarity fails to ensue in the workplace or at home, in spite of the late introduction of a fighting, driving monkey.

...one puerile, thoroughly unfunny joke after another...

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.

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.

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.

"Grandma's Boy" is a pot- and potty-mouthed relative of an Adam Sandler movie.

The only worthwhile character is bad guy J.P. (Joel David Moore), a gaming prodigy with a Gollum-like multiple-personality disorder... J.P. suggests a subtle, unconscious awareness of how stupid the whole movie is.

If you're a video game geek and/or a stoner, Grandma's Boy isn't a comedy -- it's a documentary. For everyone else, it's an interminably flat, one-joke movie with admittedly a couple of decent laughs.

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.
