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.

Everybody else, however, should stay far, far away. That is, unless you want to bear witness to the excruciating cast of characters that includes a kung-fu monkey and a guy who talks like a robot whenever he gets nervous. Yes, it's that bad.

It's as aimless and pointless as a joke told while stoned.
January 8, 2006
This is one of those movies where you stay rooted in your seat just to see how bad it can really get. And every time you think it has hit the bottom, the filmmakers find a passage taking them lower.

I won't even bore you with the horrendous way this project was shot, cut, or scrawled with crayon onto a roll of toilet paper. This thing makes the Police Academy movies look like the collected works of Billy Wilder.

The film's [directorial] crudity is ultimately an unbearable drag on its joviality.

I'd call this defiance of basic movie conventions 'experimental' if I didn't know it was actually due to sheer incompetence.

If he's schooling punks on Dance Dance Revolution or making out with Shirley Jones, Nick Swardson steals every scene he's in, giving the material a distinctive twist through unexpected line delivery and crack comic timing.

Grandma's Boy combines pot-smoking, big breasts, African bushmen, octogenarians, video-gaming techno-geeks--and one inappropriate masturbation scene--in one feel-good movie perfect for teenage boys. If they can get in, that is.

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.

Absolutely dreadful and offensive comedy.

I may require therapy after seeing this.

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.
May 6, 2006
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.

April 29, 2009
So filled with untapped laughs, potentially interesting sub-plots and fails in every single aspect in a mostly laughless stoner comedy.
January 8, 2006
Grandma's Boy is so bad that Sandler couldn't even be bothered to make his usual cameo appearance this time around.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 6, 2006
One of the most humorless attempts at comedy since the invention of Rob Schneider.

Grandma's Boy isn't just a movie, it's a weapon of mass destruction. Audiences across the country should run for cover.
January 7, 2006
What are acclaimed veteran actresses Doris Roberts, Shirley Jones and Shirley Knight doing in a movie like Grandma's Boy? They deserve better.
January 9, 2006
Nicholaus Goossen, another Sandler protégé, makes an inauspicious directing debut with this limp collection of clichés larded with product plugs.
