Alex (Allen Covert) is your typical teenager. Unfortunately he’s in his 30’s. Alex and his roommate Josh (Jonathan Loughran) get evicted from their house because Josh has been spending the rent money on Philipino hookers. This leaves Alex in a tough spot and he starts to call everyone he knows for a place to stay. He even tries to stay at his drug dealer Dante’s (Peter Dante) house. Alex ends up crashing at his co-worker Jeff’s (Nick Swardson) house for the night. After an embarrassing incident when Alex releases some of his man juices upon Jeff’s mom, he decides that he should find another place to stay. He ends up staying at his Grandma’s (Doris Roberts) house and soon finds that her schedule is quite different from his. As a video game tester, he doesn’t have to be into work until late morning but Grandma has a whole list of chores that need to be done. The rigorous schedule takes its toll on the middle-aged man and his work begins to suffer.
This is one of the few comedy films out there that I can watch every couple weeks and the jokes don’t seem to get stale. Most of the humor could be described as toilet humor, very reminiscent of the American Pie films. It is definitely not for someone looking for an Oscar winning picture or intelligent comedy. I would say that it falls into the “stoner flick” genre, but that doesn’t mean others won’t find it entertaining. The story isn’t exactly believable with most of it leading from moment to moment with little transitional plot. I suppose I found this movie very relateable in the sense that most modern day twenty something’s have an affinity for playing video games. Unfortunately, critics don’t care for this film for various reasons. I on the other hand, feel that Happy Madison Productions hit yet another home run with this film. Actually it’s one of my favorite HMP films made to this day. I give this one a very solid 8/10. Everyone that enjoys Happy Madison films should most definitely check this out.
