Trespass

A modern day revamp (of sorts) of the 1980s teen classic Adventures in Babysitting meets The Hangover for tweens, the feature debut of television writer/producer Josh Schwartz is a mess of a movie.

September 8, 2013

A gaudy, simple-minded fiasco that's too dumb for adults and too suggestive for kids.

Big Hollywood

An offensive and obnoxious comedy that never feels secure in its own identity.

Movie Talk

Justice makes a likeable lead but director Josh Schwartz's comic touch is distinctly leaden and a high proportion of the would-be funny scenes - some of them involving an uncredited Johnny Knoxville - fall flat.

Cinema Crazed

Justice has a real charm and appeal on-screen, looking good in just about anything she wears in the film...

Nickelodeon goes outside their comfort zone with Fun Size, but the film is very hit or miss, with an inconsistent tone.

The National

It's pure Nickelodeon stuff: bubblegum high jinks that's short on laughs but also, mercifully, shy on offending, too.

December 12, 2012

Here's yet another example of a DVD film inexplicably receiving a full-on cinema release...It doesn't help that Victoria Justice, pretty as she is, does not exactly ignite the screen with comic charisma.

2UE That Movie Show

Fun Size is the Nickelodeon equivalent of a Hallmark card for Halloween. Even the target audience will be asking their parents when it's polite to dispose of it after the holiday.

Urban Cinefile

The incongruous, colourful and bizarre are jumbled together in a Halloween size pumpkin in this occasionally puerile, at times endearing and often silly comedy in which a giant fake chicken violates the rear of a yellow Volvo as its ultimate low.

Genuine laughs develop in the wake of a pretty teenage nerd.

Barely developed characters come and go while faux edgy jokes and obscure American pop cultural references fall flat.

You know you're in trouble when a madcap comedy is unable to even raise a smile.

The good news about this film is that it's only 96 minutes long. The bad news is that it is 96 minutes long.

Flick Filosopher

It's the usual assemblage of grossout horrors provided for your alleged amusement... The freshly upsetting thing here is that this is a Nickelodeon production -- you know, the cable network for kids...

As ever, "fun size" translates to "no fun whatsoever".

A gross, sprawling and barely credible teen comedy.

There's barely a laugh on the horizon as Fun Size ambles through a series of unremarkable set pieces, tumbleweed one-liners and awkward tonal shifts.
