It's a cute kid's movie. Worm Boy is adorable.. but I can't really relate in any kind of way to this prepubescent story.

I love how the kids are very stupid! It is so fun that I forget how ridiculous it is!

The movie was decent. It was based off of the book and had decent simularities - as always the book is better but the movie did do it some justice.

It's a fun film to watch, especially with your family, but is obviously focused on material for younger-children. It's worth a watch atleast one time and then from there maybe good to see again if you have kids.

This is a nice family movie. It gives you some good laughs with it's semi-gross nature. It is really just a great young cast that really sells it.

When I watch films like this, I am looking for three things. I hope to find some young talent, before anyone else knows who they are, a unique story, and a funny scene or two. Unfortunately, the story here is quite disgusting and there weren't any stand out performances, but there was a really funny scene, where the nerdy kid gets caught playing dance dance revolution. The story begins when a new kid named Billy (Luke Benward) moves to town. The other kids immediately try to intimidate him, by replacing his lunch with a bag of worms. To their surprise, in defiance, Billy eats the worms and gains their respect. One thing leads to another and eventually a very disgusting competition is born. The film is based on a very popular children's book and that's really who this film was intended for. Occasionally, you get some surprises out of a film like this, but as I said earlier, there really wasn't any stand out talent here. I didn't find any young actors/actresses that I could start following from the beginning of their career, but the kids weren't bad either. They seemed to have a lot of fun with the strange story and ultimately I think kids will probably really enjoy it. As for us adults, there really isn't anything here for us to watch and I may never eat gummy worms ever again.

Hilarious! I definitely remember reading the book as a child. It was great then, it still is within this film.

Read the book as a kid and loved it so the movie gave me warm memories. The book is still far better but nice kids movie with a few ewwwwwws and laughs and very positive messages.

This has been a favorite movie of mine for years. It's a nice children's movie and it's lightheaded, pretty funny the only problem is I think Erika, could have been in a few more scenes. I really liked her character.

It's generally gross, but it's sort-of sweet on standing up to yourself and making friends, along having funny bits on the way. (B-)

Can't remember much of this movie, but it seems like I watched it just yesterday! I can't believe this came out almost 10 years ago!

Why write a book about this? and then if it couldn't get worse, why make a movie about this? There is no message or anything to take away from this film, especially not entertainment.

Ugh, what a revolting film. And they complain about kids getting dumber? Given how complicated and chaotic the adult world is, there's at least an excuse for adults to be digesting simplistic material for escapism or catharsis. But for children there's no excuse. Movies like these have no heart in them at all, they're just capitalizing on the success of comedies. What's more, the movie gives a flawed and misguided message that bullies are just wounded sweethearts who don't get love or support at home.

I liked the book but the movie was not that great. The only good part about it was watching Michael squirm. That was awsome.

A disturbing kid's movie about eating worms. I can't believe I actually watched this many years ago.
