The 2006 comedy starred Allen Covert, Linda Cardellini and a younger Jonah Hill earlier than he hit it massive with ‘Superbad.’
Remember the 2006 stoner comedy Grandma’s Boy? It solely made $6 million on the home field workplace, so I’ll forgive you do not bear in mind it or simply have not seen it, however I am keen on that film, which has amassed a cult following over the previous 15 years. The purpose I carry it up is that star Allen Covert has simply unveiled an animated scene that includes characters from the movie, in addition to an Alexa that smokes weed.
Covert took to Instagram on Monday to share the animated footage, explaining that “we got bored during lockdown and did this.” He tagged forged members corresponding to Linda Cardellini, Jonah Hill, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Kevin Nealon, Nick Swardson, Joel David Moore, Kelvin Yu and Ted Stryker, in addition to director Nicholaus Goossen.
The unique movie starred Covert as a 35-year-old online game tester who’s compelled to maneuver in together with his grandmother (Doris Roberts) after being evicted from his residence whereas falling for a girl (Cardellini) who was despatched to supervise the manufacturing of his online game firm’s latest sport. A pre-Avatar Moore performed the sport’s creator, whereas a pre-Superbad Hill performed one in all Covert’s younger co-workers and Nealon performed their boss.
The scene finds Covert’s Alex and Peter Dante‘s weed supplier Dante sharing a few of their Green Goblin — a pressure of weed that makes you suppose Willem Dafoe is within the room with you — with Dante’s Alexa, who takes an enormous hit to her interface and begins worrying about not having any legs and speaking about having seen Siri bare. Naturally, Dante has opened his personal marijuana dispensary, regardless that he appears to overlook that he owns the joint, not to mention instituted a sale.
While a Grandma’s Boy animated sequence would definitely be attention-grabbing, I am unable to say the story calls for one other chapter, and it could simply be greatest to depart it up to now as a cool factor that solely these blessed with nice style in comedy can respect. A live-action sequel could be powerful since Roberts died in 2016, however a prequel would possibly work — I simply hope it will discover the origins of Alex’s candy automotive mattress.
Adam Sandler‘s firm Happy Madison produced Grandma’s Boy and has loads of clout at Netflix to push a brand new GB challenge by way of, so by no means say by no means as regards to some form of sequence, however for now, I’m simply glad that Covert determined to throw us followers an animated bone whereas he was bored in the course of the pandemic. It’s a enjoyable film to revisit, so take a look at the brand new animated scene under, and let me know in case your Alexa is as cool as Dante’s.
