Grandma's Boy - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Alex (Allen Covert) has one sweet life. After walking away from his death by accounting job, he's now a video game tester at Brainasium, the company responsible for the worldwide gaming phenom of "Eternal Death Slayer." At 35, he may be the oldest tester in the business (he's called "Gray Bush" by his co-workers), but he's also the best.
But when his roommate fails to pay the rent for six months because he's spent every last cent at Madame Wu's Filipino Palace ("They're not hookers, they're massage therapists!"), Alex unfortunately finds himself on the street. His friendly dealer Dante (Peter Dante) can't let Alex crash because he has a business to run and besides, the guard lion will be arriving any day. His friend Jeff (Nick Swardson) agrees to put him up, until that unfortunate accident involving Alex and the action figure in the bathroom…which Jeff's mom happens to, well, catch.
Alex's last resort is to move in with three hot babes—that's what he tells his friends, at any rate. In actuality, the 35-year-old finds himself living with his sweet and loving 80-year-old grandma Lilly (Doris Roberts), along with her two roommates: the "been there, done that repeatedly" octogenarian Grace (Shirley Jones) and the not-quite-all-there, overly medicated Bea (Shirley Knight). Lilly dotes on Alex and keeps him housed and fed—in exchange for a few simple chores around the place, like taking out the trash and sandblasting the house.
