With its universal themes about fitting in, How To Eat Fried Worms is an endearing family film guaranteed to provide a wriggling good time. While the premise has a certain gross-out factor which will delight eleven year old boys, the script is clever, and

This is a story that could have gone way too far in the direction of the touching tale illustrating how kids overcome their fear of being ridiculed -- but instead maintains a buoyant irreverence.

Fried Worms is a Hoot with more laughs, funny enough, so long as you don't consider the worm's point of view.

Unhealthy eating is paired with a wholesome message, as the story encourages youngsters to be themselves, keep their word and accept kids who are different.

When it comes time for the movie to impart its lessons, it does so in such a way that kids won't feel like they're being forced to eat their broccoli -- or live worms -- for that matter.

"Puke has a mind of its own." Issued by a kid named Plug, this assessment more or less summarizes the point of How to Eat Fried Worms.
