Trivia

When J.P. is telling Mr. Cheezle about Demonik (2006), Mr. Cheezle tells him it's "very Miyamoto." He's making a reference to Shigeru Miyamoto, a ground-breaking and award-winning game designer for Nintendo who created Super Mario Bros. (1985), Donkey Kong (1981), The Legend of Zelda (1986) and many more. See more »

Goofs

When Jeff is testing the game in his room right before Alex calls to ask if he can do his levels, the action on his computer screen doesn't match up with the "Hi, You're Dead, Byebye" as the figures keep moving and fighting. As he is on the phone and his hands are off the controller, the characters keep moving anyways. See more »

This film would have sucked had Sandler been in it
15 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the funniest movies beginning to end that I've seen in a very very long time. Allen Covert did a REMARKABLE job writing this film, and It's easy to see where Sandler really gets his material from. Nick Swardson (Terry the gay male prostitute from Reno 911) was absolutely hilarious. Linda Cardellini (ER) was great too... I don't know how many women in the gaming industry are as cute as she is - but

  • it was great to see her in something as funny as Grandma's Boy after


seeing her every week on ER for the last couple years. Having exposure to gamers - a couple of whom are testers, I don't think this flick could have been *much* more accurate. Overall - I LOVED this movie. Start to finish it just got progressively funnier. GOOD JOB MR. COVERT!
