Things I liked about Grandma’s Boy:
- The cute girl from Freaks & Geeks. She's cute.
- Nick Swardson. He's a funny guy. His stand-up is hilarious, and I loved him in Blades of Glory.
Things I didn’t like about Grandma’s Boy:
- Everything else.
OK, maybe that's not fair. A few lines made me laugh pretty hard, but on the whole, it was like a barely-entertaining sitcom that lasted almost two hours. If it were a series, I'd only watch it if it was on and I were too drunk to change the channel. Allen Covert sounds like Jon Stewart (and even looks like a slightly younger version of him), and he may be Adam Sandler's buddy, but Jesus Christ is he an awful actor. It was sort of like watching a seventh-grade production of Fiddler on the Roof: the script ain't half bad, but the performance wasn't "acted" so much as "spoken word for word." I probably would have liked it more if someone else played Alex (and I was baked out of my mind), but that's neither here nor there.
I give it a D, because it may have been awful, but it was good for a few laughs.
Also, the scenes with all the tester geeks were hilarious.
