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

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

It's gross, it's cheesy, and it's baked beyond all reasonable limits, but this everything-and-the-kitchen-sink comic souffl still manages to be goofily entertaining beyond all expectations.

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.

[The film] does a very thorough job of reducing every recognizable member of the cast to probable career lows.

The Sandler-patented mix of the deliberately offensive and the blatantly sentimental loses something in the maestro's absence.

Grandma's Boy is an Adam Sandler comedy without Adam Sandler, which is kind of like getting a root canal without the dentist.
January 9, 2006
An Adam Sandler movie without Adam Sandler, it turns out, is not necessarily an improvement.
January 9, 2006
Even silly fun needs serious talent behind it.
January 9, 2006
The kind of laid-back goofball comedy custom-designed to chase away any self-respecting respectable person and play to the good-natured slackers out there in the dark. If you're among the latter, you've found a home. If you're not, you have been warned.

While '06 is still young, chances are, 12 months from now, Grandma's Boy will rank as one of the year's worst comedies. Munich offers more laughs.

No one here has the slightest idea what being elderly actually means or that old folks may once have been (and may still be) far hipper than the young men and women looking at them with fond incomprehension.
January 9, 2006
The film's [directorial] crudity is ultimately an unbearable drag on its joviality.
January 9, 2006
Nicholaus Goossen, another Sandler protg, makes an inauspicious directing debut with this limp collection of clichs larded with product plugs.
January 8, 2006
Goossen misuses recognizable names for dubious cameos and pushes eccentric side characters to uncomfortable parody.
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.
January 7, 2006
I did manage to be more tickled than annoyed at some of the movie's dumb, crude attempts at humor.
January 6, 2006
Just as a few bong hits would probably make the movie a tiny bit funnier, they would also probably make all memories of the film blissfully vanish.
January 6, 2006
The veteran actresses who co-star in this stoner comedy have an Oscar and multiple Emmys and Tonys among them, but it's unlikely they'll have to clear any more space on their mantels for Grandma's Boy.
