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

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

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.

More adult humor than we have come to expect from a Nickelodeon product, but enjoyable just the same.

This is utterly disposable stuff, but it does have its moments.

Screenwriter Max Werner and director Josh Schwartz clearly have several well-worn copies of Adventures in Babysitting between them, but they keep the gags coming at a brisk pace.

Though it doesn't always hit the hilarity target, this tween-targeted romp strikes a sweet-but-not-sappy balance.

"Fun Size" lives up to the candy correlation of its title. It's pleasurable enough in the moment, but the buzz fades quickly.

There's an effervescent tempo to "Fun Size," a gleeful "After Hours" for All Hallow's Eve, but for tweens and teenagers, and set in Cleveland.

The fun to be had in Fun Size, a 'tween comedy featuring Victoria Justice of the Nickelodeon TV series Victorious, is neither gigantic nor minuscule; it's just about fun size, which is probably enough.

...a sweet little family film that may be too dorky for the age group at its center and require some parental explanations for the Albert-aged set.

It pairs modern attitude with John Hughesian tropes, and it's odd enough, in spurts, to boast originality.

By the end of this romp, "Fun Size" actually accomplished something charming: sentimentality without normality.

Befitting the title, there's little nutritional value, but there's a bit of sweetness inside the throwaway wrapper.

Captures the manic spirit of the holiday, tearing around with a modest sense of madness, celebrating costumes and a collision of eccentric personalities.

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.

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