Grandma's Boy | 2006 | R | - 8.3.9

A 36-year-old man (Allen Covert) working as a video game tester is kicked out of his apartment for not paying the rent. With nowhere else to go he ends up living with his grandmother and her two roommates, and he introduces them to cable TV, marijuana-laced brownies and video games. Also with Peter Dante, Jonathan Loughran, Nick Swardson and Joel David Moore. Directed by Nick Goossen. [1:36]

SEX/NUDITY 8 - A man masturbates while looking at a partially nude Lara Croft action figure (its bare breast, legs and buttocks are visible); he is interrupted by his friend's mother and apparently ejaculates on the woman.
 A woman takes off her top revealing her bare breasts and presses a younger man's face into her cleavage; we later see the man continuing to press his face into her cleavage and then later licking her nipple.
 An older woman and a young man lie in bed together (presumably after sex): he is bare-chested and her bare shoulders are visible, and they talk about their sexual history and he makes a remark about thinking that he should have worn protection because she had had so many partners.
 A woman sings and dances, she removes her top revealing a tank top underneath, makes suggestive movements with her hips and she tries to lick her own breast.
 A woman wearing a short skirt leans over a couch and is apparently wearing a thong because her bare buttocks are revealed. A woman wearing a very short skirt (bare buttocks are visible) leans over a seated man whose face is pressed into her cleavage and she moves rhythmically.
 An older woman presses a young man's head against her clothed breasts. An older woman caresses a young man's head and kisses his ear. An older woman and a young man kiss in a few scenes. An older woman tells a young man that he was cute and she caresses his face.
 A nude man answers his front door to another man who asks him why he is naked (we see his bare chest and buttocks). Several men are shown bare-chested and women wear short shorts that also reveal bare abdomens and bare legs. A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage.
 An older woman talks to a young man about having performed sex acts on a number of famous actors. A young man tells an older woman that it is time for mutual oral sex (using a numerical term). A man makes a sexual gesture with his tongue toward the crotch of a doll. A man and a woman kiss.
 Three older women talk about a younger man and that they "ride him pretty hard." A man talks about his roommates having tied him up. A man tries to make a pass at a woman in a few scenes and she ignores him. A man tells another man that his "moves were hot."
 A man admires a woman as she walks away from him and makes a crude sexual remark. People misunderstand and think that a man is having sex with his grandmother and her two roommates who are also elderly. A man says, "let's do it" and he is afraid that a woman has misunderstood his remark as a sexual advance. A woman sings a sexually suggestive song including lyrics like, "Until I ask for more..." A man makes a few crude sexual remarks to a woman.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We hear punching in another room, a man and a chimpanzee are fighting, and the chimpanzee jumps down a flight of stairs and knocks the man over. A man kicks another man in the shin.
 A man and a woman play a video game in a few scenes and we see a "creature from hell killing drug dealers in a meth lab" (we see the creature tear someone in half and blood spurts). Two men play a boxing video game and we see one character punching another.
 A man wakes up in bed, he hears a moaning, ghostly voice, and a woman jumps up from under the bed and he yells.
 A woman tells a man that another woman fell out of bed and died on the floor. A man talks about cockfighting.
 A woman takes a sip of tea, spits it back into the cup and makes a face. A woman licks a paintbrush with paint on it. A man flatulates in a few scenes. A man drools while crying and we see the goo on his face. Two young men practice "arm farts."

SUBSTANCE USE - Two men smoke marijuana together, a man smokes marijuana while standing on a ladder painting a house, people smoke marijuana and drink alcohol at a party, a man smokes marijuana in many scenes, sometimes alone and sometimes with other people, two men smoke an enormous marijuana cigarette, and three women drink tea that was made from marijuana and they are intoxicated. A man describes the effects of smoking different kinds of marijuana -- one makes you feel like a rabbit, for example -- one character sells marijuana from his home for a living, and we see a bong sitting on a table where two men are seated (the water is dirty and has apparently been used recently). A woman takes many prescription medications. People do many shots of tequila, people drink champagne, a woman drinks wine in several scenes and people drink beer in several scenes.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Eviction, video game companies, mental illness, competition, living with one's parents as an adult, puberty, death of a husband, jealousy, death of friend, death of a grandfather, love, vegans, multiple personalities.

MESSAGE - Do what you are passionate about and you will be happy and content. Older people are also interested in sex.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
