Grandma's Boy (2006)
Grandma's Boy', is an outrageous gaudy farce in which ALEX, by day is the world's oldest video game tester (a well restrained Allen Covert) but by night is privately developing the next big game "Demonic". He gets driven out from his apartment because his roommate has been spending their rent money on hookers, and is forced to move in with his grandmother, LILLY (Doris Roberts, endearing as usual) and her two friends, GRACE (Shirley Jones) and BEA (Shirley Knight, sizzling for her age).
Very often does one see a film that isn't trying to be funny, but just is naturally; although the jokes and gags may seem like they are written by a bunch of people on a constant "high", the film laughs at itself and thus in turn makes the audience laugh. This is not you "slip on a banana peel" comedy, but yes, it does do the job.
I highly recommend this film, (JP's performance & his split personality was the funniest) for the humor, the dead pan laughs and an ending where the couple don't hold hands and traipse into the sunset.
