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 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.

Sufficiently oddball and the performers sufficiently likable to keep the whole thing from being painful.

You have to give credit to a movie that focuses 90 percent of its energy on video game and ganja jokes. Even if you make the best movie ever, gamers and tokers are perhaps the two least motivated groups to get out and see a movie.

I did manage to be more tickled than annoyed at some of the movie's dumb, crude attempts at humor.

What distinguishes this freewheeling, strangely honest comedy (directed by first-timer Nicholaus Goossen) is its puff-and-pass-it-along view, an inviting, goofy-grin attitude toward insular losers.

Kind of like Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle crossed with "The Golden Girls".

There is no doubt that it belongs in Hollywood's sewer, but it's the gem of the sewer this year.

In the real world, no one ever learns anything. People just stumble along in their own filth and stupidity. So does everyone in this movie. It's refreshing.

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.

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.

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 what would result if Adam Sandler and his high profile co-stars bailed on a movie and the understudies took over.
