Grandma's Boy | 2006
Alex has one sweet life. After walking away from his death by accounting job, he's now a video game tester at Brainasiu, the company responsible for the worldwide gaming phenom of "Eternal Death Slayer." At 35, he may be the oldest tester in the business, 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, Alex unfortunately finds himself on the street. His friendly dealer 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 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, along with her two roommates: the "been there, done that repeatedly" octogenarian Grace and the not-quite-all-there, overly medicated Bea. Brainasium's New Age-y honcho Mr. Cheezle has brought in hotshot game exec Samantha from New York to help whip "Eternal Death Slayer Three" into shape before its street date. Seems the series' creator, uber-nerd wiz kid J.P., has been coasting on his rep--he was a millionaire by the time he turned 13--and his newest entry has a few bugs. The game's kinks are no prob for Alex and the Brainasium testers, which leaves time for Alex to help Lilly with the house and to try and bag his new hot boss while continuing to work in secret developing his own game, called "Demonik." Things start to get tricky, though, once the cat's outta the bag about who Alex is really rooming with--that is until the gray ladies warm to Alex's friends at an after-work party, thanks to that special tea they found in his room. Amazing what a few tokes and tequila slammers will do to loosen things up. But when jealous nerdboy J.P. swipes Alex's "Demonik" and tries to pass it off as his own, it becomes a battle of Gen-Xers versus gin players when Samantha produces a secret weapon: Alex's grandma Lilly.
