Fun Size

Critics Consensus

It occasionally shows surprising flashes of wit, but Fun Size is too safe and formulaic -- not to mention unfunny -- to survive comparisons to the '80s teen movies it eagerly imitates.

Movie Info

Fun Size is a teen comedy centered on a sarcastic high school senior, Wren (Victoria Justice), who is eager to distance herself from her dysfunctional family by going off to college. Before that can happen, Wren's mother, Joy, insists that she watch her little brother Albert on Halloween night, so Joy can go to a rager with her much younger boyfriend. When Wren gets distracted by an invitation to the party of the year, Albert disappears into a sea of trick-or-treaters. Frantic to locate him before their mother discovers he's missing, Wren enlists the help of her sassy best friend April, as well as Peng, an aspiring ladies man and co-captain of the debate team, and Peng's best friend, Roosevelt, a sweet nerd whose crush on Wren clouds his better judgment. This unlikely foursome embarks on a high-stakes, all-night adventure to find Albert, crossing paths with outrageous characters every step of the way. -- (C) Paramount

  • As ever, "fun size" translates to "no fun whatsoever".

  • 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.

    Oct 30, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This is utterly disposable stuff, but it does have its moments.

    Oct 29, 2012 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Oct 26, 2012 | Full Review…
  • There's little fun to be had in this foolish Halloween comedy that generates many more eye rolls than laughs.

Audience Reviews for Fun Size

Average flick about a teen's Halloween night gone wrong, with the requisite high school antics and types: the hot girl who's inexplicably unpopular, the academic nerd who pines for her, her sassyfrassy, social-climbing best friend, the grieving-through-partying absent mother, and the mute little brother who goes missing but not before befriending a variety of party miscreants. It's all rather low stakes, but the emotional reveal about Ren's late father is better than the rest of the movie.

"Trick or Treat, Bitch" Fun Size was a fun movie. It's not great in any means. But it made me laugh and gave me the mind numbing I was looking for. The little boy playing Albert was really funny. He is the best part of the movie. This movie is for a teen audience. I have a teen, so therefore I watch a plenty of these films. It's not the worse one I've seen of the bunch, but it's definitely too mature for younger kids and too immature for us adults. But it still made me laugh and exceeded in keeping my mind from wandering. I'd probably see it again. It's just one of those movies you can see or pass. Up to you.

Some people just can't handle Halloween. Good movie! I can understand where some people would really be down on this film. There is no doubt that it is full of clichés, in fact every character nearly reeks of cliché. TV master Josh Schwartz helms this film and he has certainly created and worked on some truly great TV shows and I'm not sure this is his best creation but he definitely sincerely tries. I couldn't help but laugh my way through this. The Chicken shack scene was priceless and despite being cliché so many of the physical comedy scenes, and situations that they get into are genuinely funny and certainly worth watching if you can put your expectations in check. Wren's Halloween plans go awry when she's made to babysit her brother, who disappears into a sea of trick-or-treaters. With her best friend and two nerds at her side, she needs to find her brother before her mom finds out he's missing.

"Fun Size" is a teen comedy about a girl who is on her way to a Halloween party, when she gets stuck with the job of taking her weird brother trick or treating. She loses her brother, and from there spends the night with her friends searching for him, while he gets into all kind of trouble himself. Kind of an "adventures of babysitting" type of movie. It's fun, and has some funny moments, but overall it's just a "meh" movie. It's short at 86 moments, and at times you'll check the time, because your ready for it to end. The funniest moments are with the little boy, Albert, and he steals the movie even though he barely speaks a work. This is worth a redbox rental or a bootleg, but anything more and it's a waste, unless your a teen.
