Different/Weird/Not Bad/Just OK/Kinda like, but didn't.

There's really no plot to speak of, but I was in the mood for something mindless and this fit the bill. Victoria Justice is really likeable, and the supporting cast is actually pretty funny. Definitely not a standout, but I've seen much worse.

Fun Size is completely implausible, and Victoria Justice is a horrible actress. But the movie is slightly diverting for pre-teens and teens, and has some laughs (mostly in spite of itself).

I saw the trailer and thought "wasn't this already done in every sitcom and at least a dozen movies so far?"

It's ok, kinda funny! Throw some popcorn at the projector and you'll have fun!!!!

Obviously this wasn't aiming to be a blockbuster, but it was enjoyable. You have to respect it for what it is; and it's for preteens.

A movie that is too childish for adults and too grown up for kids.
August 25, 2013
For a Nickelodeon movie, it had a bit of mild language that I wasn`t expecting.

this movie is good for my kid but sum of the words are harsh
December 22, 2013
First of all I want to ask why is this is Nickelodeon film? When did saying Hell, Damn, Bitch, talking about sex, big crazy high school parties and a big electronic chicken humping a car become material that is ok for kids. That part confused me BUT if you don't concern yourself with it this film turned out to be funny, entertaining and worthwhile. It does have its moments where scenes stretch on just a little to much and the directors attempts at being funny fall flat but there are enough good moments to trump those weak ones. The concept is very simple and what happens is pretty ordinary but the characters create fun times and everything just fits together nicely. Also, the added on part at the end, just a little extra that adds nothing to the movie featuring the little brother is one of the funniest things I have seen in a while. Make sure to watch that because you will laugh out loud for sure.

A Halloween comedy that is great to watch for Halloween.

Had some good comedy and is best enjoyed with another person, but the overall style, plot, and many other things were a little bland.

It may carry some funny gags but Fun Size is an uneven and sometimes unfunny comedy.

Teenage night-of-catastrophes Halloween film that is often funny and moves fast enough to cover the few not so funny gags. It's also not nearly as crude as the recent run of teen films and packs a surprisingly effective theme of friendship and being true to self.
December 7, 2013
Tonally confused and often aimless, Fun Size is a boring, unfunny, frantic mess that even Thomas Middleditch couldn't save from mediocrity.

One line summary: Probably fine for the target audience of tweens and teens.

-----------------------------------

The film is about: a teenaged nerd girl growing up, thinking about college, boys, school.

The film is about: a single mother's attempt to have romance with two kids on hand.

The film is about: losing a pudgy, mischievous, pre-school aged boy on Halloween night, then trying to find him.

How well do these themes fit together?

Joy is going to a party with Keevin, so she assigns Albert to Wren. Unfortunately, Aaron Riley invites her to a party. Looks like conflict of interest. Even before the party, she loses Albert in the first haunted house they go to. Albert makes his way around on his own, oddly enough. Albert hooks up with a convenience store clerk. Wren just misses him, but spends time with some of her fellow teens, mostly Roosevelt. The clerk fouls up and gets his car towed; Albert gets into the car as it's towed, since his jackalantern full of candy was in it. Wren targets the chicken place, since Albert loves it. Unfortunately, they take a slow route, and he evades them. Roosevelt's 'borrowed' car breaks down. They just barely miss Albert again as Galaxy Scout intercepts him. Roosevelt screws up royally, and backs the car into the chicken building, and knocks the huge, animated chicken off the top of the building onto the car.

Joy finds that the host of the party Keevin invited her to lives with his parents, and most of the attendees are quite definitely younger than she is. Galaxy Scout takes Albert to the party where Joy is. Unfortunately, he leaves with the enormous scumbag (Joergen) who stole all his Halloween candy. The clerk sees the scumbag with Albert in the back of his convertible. Joy gets to know the hosts of the party, which is weird, but is a bit therapeutic for her. She goes home and sees that Wren and Albert are not back yet.

Does Wren get Albert back from Joergen? Do Wren and Roosevelt ever clear the air?

------Scores-------

Cinematography: 10/10 Looks good.

Sound: 6/10 No particular problems. Stupid incidental music.

Acting: 6/10 Thumbs down: Jackson Nicoll, Chelsea Handler, Thomas McDonell, Johnny Knoxville. Thumbs up: Thomas Mann, Riki Lindhome, Jane Levy.

Screenplay: 6/10 The basic ideas are okay, but it might have been better if Robert Altman had written and directed it. In less capable hands, this did not work all that well. There were too many balls in the air. Most of them dropped to the ground.

the fact that one of the creators of chuck directed this movie worries me deeply.

Throughout the entire film, I kept asking myself, "Who is this movie for?" It's a pretty raunchy film for a pre-teen flick, plenty of sexual innuendo and inappropriate language, but it's also pretty stupid for a teen comedy. Aside from the content, Fun Size is just a bad film. Maybe if you've never seen a teen sex comedy, there might be something to enjoy here, but this film is chock full of cliches. From the beautiful/quirky and brilliant, misunderstood girl who falls for the brilliant and nerdy guy who's been in love with her forever, and then the promiscuous and shallow best friend finds love in a nerdy guy. It just doesn't work at all. There are a few moments of charm between Wren (terrible name) and Roosevelt (also terrible) and Wren's brother Albert (... that's okay, but not for an 8 year old). It's probably enjoyable for a preteen, but the content is also too mature for them as well.

There is NOTHING exceptional about the plot or story of this film except for the good feelings it gives you. But isn't that why we watch movies? I found plenty of laughs in this teeny bopper romp. I enjoyed it despite my age. Haha.

Although 'Fun Size' is somewhat of a funny movie, it has moments of juvenile absurdity and entertainment that isn't perfect for family viewing.
