Produced by Happy Madison, Adam Sandler's production company, and written by and starring Allen Covert (a supporting player in several Sandler vehicles), GRANDMA'S BOY is an unapologetic ode to immaturity in 20- and 30-something males that features all of the staples of the genre---beer, bosoms, bongs, video games, and a karate kicking chimp. Covert's script, which revels in its nerdiness, details the plight of Alex, a 35-year-old video game tester who finds himself homeless when he discovers that his roommate has spent the last six months of their rent at a brothel. Left with no other option, he accepts his Grandma Lilly's (Doris Roberts) offer to stay with her and her two roommates--randy Grace (Shirley Jones) and near-catatonic Bea (Shirley Knight)--until he gets back on his feet. Though it seems that this new arrangement will wreak havoc on his highly social, pot-smoking life, and his attempts to romance his boss, Samantha (Linda Cardellini), he finds that closing the generation gap is much easier than expected.
A low-budget ($5 million) relative of popular male-bonding comedies such as OLD SCHOOL, THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN, and WEDDING CRASHERS, GRANDMA'S BOY has a comparable anarchic style which, despite a multitude of gags you wouldn't want to watch with your parents, still seems to have nothing but the best of audience-pleasing intentions. Throw in some great music and several affectionate--and spot-on--skewerings of the geek lifestyle, and you have a classic depiction of arrested development that bears repeat viewings--especially if you're watching it in a dorm room.
I love this movie but when I received it in the mail the dvd cover/packaging did not look like the picture on Overstock.com website. No big deal, I just think they should be more accurate with product pictures so you get exactly what you see online.
Overstock. It's not a huge deal but the ad for this movie had a slipcover for the dvd box. It's in the overstock ad as having it but when it arrived it did not. I could've bought it cheaper elsewhere but I wanted the cover.
As for the movie, this is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. I will say though, this movie is not for everyone. If you're not opened minded about s*x and drugs then you should pass on this movie. It's rude, crude, and hilarious.
i bought this movie off overstock and it got here relitively fast. once i got it i put it in my DVD player and watched. the movie was really funny, at some times trying to be funny but not quite getting there. some of he sceens are a little adult at time so its deffinatelt not for kids but all around a pretty good movie
