When Alex reaches into the oven, he picks up the hot pan with his fingers and thumbs. In the next scene, when his hands are bandaged, his fingertips aren't bandaged at all. There wouldn't really be any reason to bandage his palms, considering they never touched the hot pan. See more »

Surprisingly funny
15 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you go into this movie expecting a sophisticated plot, dramatic characters, or heartfelt moments, you will be very, very disappointed. On the other hand, if you don't care whether a movie has a plot, as long as it's funny, Grandma's Boy will definitely satisfy. With plenty of stupid and silly moments (the Lara Croft scene is hilarious) and one-liners, most fans of "stupid humor" will enjoy themselves. If you're an uptight, stick-up-the-butt type, you will likely curse the day you saw it. Stay home and eat Cheetos if you take dumb comedies that seriously.

No, it's not perfect. The "robot" kid is freaking annoying, and some of the gross stuff feels forced. But ah...what are you gonna do? Better than watching another painful romantic comedy, right?
