Consensus: A gross-out comedy that's more gross than comedic, Grandma's Boy is lazy and unrewarding.

The Sandler-patented mix of the deliberately offensive and the blatantly sentimental loses something in the maestro's absence.

Even if you aren't under the influence, you might find yourself chuckling at various points during the movie, if only in disbelief at some of the things the cast is asked to do.
