Fun Size Reviews

This is a dog's breakfast of a film, lurching from simpering teen-romcom sentiment to off-colour paedophile gags to sub-'Juno' hipster cultural references to a lecture on the woes of single motherhood without breaking stride.

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.

There's little fun to be had in this foolish Halloween comedy that generates many more eye rolls than laughs.

It feels like a project that was pitched for the CW but watered down for Nickelodeon audiences. In the end, everyone loses.

"Fun Size" presents the broiling hormones of youth at room temperature.

A 90-minute theatrical release from Nickelodeon Productions that, if anything, should have aired as a half-hour Nickelodeon special.

"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.

"Fun Size" seems trapped in a limbo between a hyperkinetic comedy for kids and something more outlaw for teens.

Just like a Halloween miniatures assortment, something for everyone - or no one, as the case may be.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.
