Plot: Alex (ALLEN COVERT) has one sweet life. After walking away from his death by accounting job, he's now a video game tester at Brainasium, the company responsible for the worldwide gaming phenom of "Eternal Death Slayer." At 35, he may be the oldest tester in the business (he's called "Gray Bush" by his co-workers), but he's also the best.

But when his roommate fails to pay the rent for six months because he's spent every last cent at Madame Wu's Filipino Palace ("They're not hookers, they're massage therapists!"), Alex unfortunately finds himself on the street. His friendly dealer Dante (PETER DANTE) can't let Alex crash because he has a business to run and besides, the guard lion will be arriving any day. His friend Jeff (NICK SWARDSON) agrees to put him up, until that unfortunate accident involving Alex and the action figure in the bathroom…which Jeff's mom happens to, well, catch.

Alex's last resort is to move in with three hot babes—that's what he tells his friends, at any rate. In actuality, the 35-year-old finds himself living with his sweet and loving 80-year-old grandma Lilly (DORIS ROBERTS), along with her two roommates: the "been there, done that repeatedly" octogenarian Grace (SHIRLEY JONES) and the not-quite-all-there, overly medicated Bea (SHIRLEY KNIGHT).

external linkNot only are none of the jokes in Grandma's Boy funny, but it's sometimes bad how far they miss the mark. 0.5/4

external linkMost of the film plays like a series of stitched-together sketches. There's some cubicle humor, Office Space riffs, Porky’s sex jokes (including a few gross out Farrelly Brother-esque scenes, most notably a early encounter with a Tomb Raider action figure), and whole hemp fields of pot gags, but the majority of the jokes fall flat. All in all, Grandma’s Boy is a Neanderthal picture; it’s funny but so lowbrow you’ll actually feel your brain cells dying. 2.5/5
--Keith Breese (

external linkThe film is just barely entertaining, and eventually heads into an irreverence free-fall that includes…well, for those that picked “monkey that knows judo” on your scorecard at home, you can pick up your prize later this week. 3/5
--Brian Orndorf (

external linkIf nothing else suggests just how bad this film is, let me point out that it features David Spade as a snotty gay vegan waiter and he may well be the highlight of the whole sorry mess. 1/5
--Peter Sobczynski (

external linkNot every film needs to spew Shakespeare, but when the best a comedy can offer is Jones playing a sexual predator and a robot-wannabe character, you know something is rotten in the cineplex. 3.5/4

external linkThere's a bit of obligatory gross-out humor near the beginning, but then the movie settles into a fairly affable routine of slacker jokes and juvenile put-downs. Since there is no central storyline to progress, I assume each scene is in the movie simply because someone thought it was funny -- which is puzzling, because most of them aren't. C
--Eric D. Snider (

external linkEverybody 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. 1.5/5
--Jason Zingale (

external linkCome to think of it, “Grandma’s House” could just provide an argument that evolution may sometimes work in reverse. Luckily, the law of natural selection will kick in quickly, and it shouldn’t be long before this fetid piece of puerility stops stinking up theatres. Just be sure to avoid the DVD, too. F
