Clintus' Review of Grandma's Boy
Starring a few of Adam Sandler's frequent co-stars, Grandma's Boy is a rare Happy Madison production without Sandler himself. Star Allen Covert (the guy soaping his ass in Mr.Deeds)is better than expected, as are Shirley Jones (Partridge family) and Linda Cardellini. Remember her as Scooby Doo's Velma? This film is a stoner comedy to be sure but also a love-fest for computer game geeks.
This is simple fun. I laughed frequently, but some of this material is only funny if you really are stoned, a little like Cheech and Chong. The best example might be the whole Dante-chimp-lion bit. Also, the office at Brainiac is completely wacky yet somehow imaginable. Having never been a part of a company like this, I imagine JP's robot voice not completely out of place.
Its laugh out loud funny, may be not as outrageous as The Hangover, but I enjoyed Grandma's Boy more than that or most recent Sandler's flicks.
