Overview

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.
