Dove Review

I don’t even know how to start this review except to say that it is a waste of time and money to go to this film if you are offended by the “F-word.” I counted its use 7 times in the first few minutes before the opening credits were shown. I counted a total of 42 utterances in the entire movie (forgive me if I missed one), which means it was used once every two minutes. The language is foul, the sexual talk is obscene and drug use is over- done in this film. If I could have walked out, I would have. The previews looked funny, but they were the best part of the experience. I would have never thought of using bad language in front of my Grandmother, let alone smoking cigarettes, drinking beer or having a wild party with her. This movie is also filled with a great deal of sexual dialog and activity. “Grandma’s Boy” goes too far over the top to be considered a family film.
