Just like its namesake, Fun Size is a small amount of mediocrity that won't leave a bad taste in your mouth, but definitely won't satisfy many viewers.

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

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.

Teenagers deserve bigger portions of entertainment than these meagre morsels.

Like a "fun size" chocolate bar, it's just empty calories. It's a momentary pleasure, instantly forgotten.

Not quite suitable for the young ones, nor is it funny or wild enough for the Gossip Girl crowd.

Tweenies are more forgiving than I am.

There remains a huge market for a great Halloween teen comedy, but Fun Size is the disappointing apple that your crazy-haired neighbor gives you instead of candy. Feel free to dump this one in the bushes.

It comes off as some kind of odd pretender of a flick. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)

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.

Even the good gags are robbed of their punch by the pedestrian way the movie was shot and cut.

Just when I was completely losing patience with proceedings, the film started.

Victoria Justice and Jane Levy are keepers, but the forced jokes and thinly drawn characters never add up to much of a movie.

A hydra-headed attempt to dirty up the Nickelodeon brand while simultaneously scrubbing raunchy high-school hookup tropes into family-friendly shape.

Put it this way, the movie's funniest character is the only one who doesn't talk.

A gross, sprawling and barely credible teen comedy.

This Size doesn't matter.

Justice is a pretty, personality-free screen presence, while the more interesting cast members, like Levy and Handler, are stuck in shrill, unsympathetic roles.

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

Fun Size? No fun in any size.
