Grandma's Boy is an incredibly stupid comedy DVD. It is even more stupid than a National Lampoon movie. Grandma's Boy is also a comedy stoners, geeks, and any guy who has spend more than an hour a day playing a computer game or video game will definitely love.

Grandma's Boy is the story of Alex, a 35 year old computer game tester who is evicted from his apartment and ends up living with his grandmother (Doris Roberts of Everybody Loves Raymond fame in basically the same role as she had on the sitcom) and her two roommates (Shirley Jones and Shirley Knight). At work, he must put up with his best friend of sorts Jeff, the other geeks who work with him, his very weird boss (played by Kevin Nealon), the robot like computer genius whose new game he is testing, and the new team supervisor he is hot for.

There is not much plot in Grandma's Boy although there is something about a video game Alex has written that somehow plays a role in the story and the end. Most of this really bad comedy is a serious of stoner jokes, geek jokes, and little old ladies discovering drugs jokes.

There is a whole bunch of stuff that makes little sense in Grandma's Boy. Then again, what can you expect from a comedy that includes such great thespians as David Spade and Rob Schneider in minor roles?

Boomers will definitely enjoy Shirley Jones (Mrs. Partridge) as an old lady who deflowers a geek, tells about her many conquests, and has a major make-out scene with said geek. Stoner movies will like uberstoner Dante, one of Alex's friends.

Grandma's Boy. Dumber than Dum and Dumber, as funny as a bad National Lampoon, a must for any geek and computer gamer.
