Grandma's Boy ★½ 2006 (R)

Oh, Mrs. Partridge, how could you?! Slacker pot-head Alex (Covert) is a 35-year-old videogame tester who moves in with his dotty grandma, Lilly (Roberts), and her two roommates—space case Bea (Knight) and easy-of-virtue Grace (Jones). Supposedly Alex is grown-up enough to actually have a girlfriend, co-worker Samantha (Cardellini), but this doesn't seem credible. Of course, neither does the flick but what do you expect since it comes from Adam Sandler's production company. Rob Schneider and David Spade cameo. 96m/C DVD .
