Trivia

When Alex comes out of Samantha's office J.P. is standing facing the wall and you can see a poster that says Gay Robot (2006), a TV-series written by Nick Swardson (Jeff) and a character from a sketch of the same name from Adam Sandler's 2004 comedy album "Shh... Don't Tell". There is also a small poster for "Gay Robot" on the shelf behind the desk in Mr. Cheezel's office. See more »

Stoner Fun
26 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A 35 year old video game tester (Allen Covert) gets evicted from his apartment and is forced to move in with his grandma (Doris Roberts) and her two elderly friends (one of them is played by Shirley Jones). He tells his goofy friends at work that he's living with three babes, but the "jig is up" after they show up at the office.

This is one of those C-list acting B movie comedies that should be awful but it's really pretty funny. There are laughs throughout the entire film. Most of them are juvenile, toilet, and stoner jokes but they work for the most part. The film is loaded with toilet humor on the same level as the American Pie films. There is also a sweetness to it that helps balance things out.

The film does begin to fall apart towards the end and a some of the writing is pretty predictable. But this is a fun movie that will probably go by the waste side due to lack of stars, so catch it on DVD. It's pretty enjoyable and certainly a guilty pleasure. (**1/2)
