First of all, I'm not sure who this movie is marketed to. Kids?Nickelodeon's logo scrolls at the beginning of the movie giving thatimpression, yet there are crass jokes such as "tadpoles in your dad'ssac". There's also breast touching, sexual tension during said breasttouching, and a boy commenting on his mother's small boobs. This wouldbe fine and dandy, if the rest of the content wasn't so juvenile. Ipersonally don't mind crass jokes, but I felt as if they were out ofplace. I just felt as though type of people who'd appreciate tadpolesin ball sacs aren't going to enjoy watching a one-armed Spider-Man fooladults out of candy while trick-or-treating. (You may think I'm being a"prude" with this review, but I appreciate the humor and gratuitousnudity in films such as "Harold & Kumar". It's juts that "Harold &Kumar" knows what it is and what sort of audience is watching it.)
Alfred is supposed to be the charming yet devious little boy character,but he was just so unlikeable. You're introduced to him on the toilet,hearing the sound effects of poop plopping into the water. As if onceweren't enough, the last shot you see is, likewise, Alfred pooping onthe toilet - sound effects and all. It's not funny, it's pretty gross,actually. Make sure you aren't snacking on popcorn while you watch.
A lot of the antics the teenagers get into while driving around feelvery forced, with little resolution. Peng shooting chicken at a bullythat he never encounters again? A kid totals his car, and his mothersnot only don't care, but give him keys to a second car? I don't know. Ijust don't believe anything presented to me, and yet it doesn't havethat surreality of something like "Tide Land". Though, it wasn't acomplete waste of time. Thomas Middleditch & Thomas Mann play charmingcharacters, Victoria Justice and Jane Levy are likewise talented actorswho tried their best to bring lukewarm material to life. If you'relooking for a slightly inappropriate and awkward Halloween movie towatch with the family, well, why not? Just don't expect too much out ofit.

A teenage girl and her best friend want to attend the Halloween partywith the cool kids, but are stuck trick-or-treating with her littlebrother. He becomes lost, and they spend the evening searching for him.What ensues is supposed to be a funny adventure of oddball charactersgetting themselves into amusing situations, but there just is not muchto laugh at here. In the end the girl is destined to come to some sortof realization about what she really deems important, which ispredictable and does not add much to the movie. Victoria Justice, whoplays the girl, is pretty and likable enough, but that is not enough tomake this movie fun to watch.

Fun Size is the teen comedy produced by Nickeloden (the company who areresponsible for iCarly and Wizards of Waveraly Place). It is about agirl who is forced to babysit her little brother when Halloween plansgo awry. However, he goes missing and she has to set out with her nerdfriends to find him...wow, that is a bland plot.
I have to admit, I didn't admire the idea of watching it judging fromthe trailer, but my friends wanted to see it, so I decided to give it ashot...what a dreadful mistake that was.
I must have slept through most of the movie, as I can't really rememberwhat happened, but I was jumping for joy in my seat when it finished.This is a plain, dim-witted, over-the-top and rarely funny film, whichhas an uninteresting storyline, stereotypical characters (the glamorousgirls who fall in love with hot boys and the nerds with big glasses andrabbit teeth) and gross jokes (gross as in reference to sexual acts).
The film is clearly aimed at young teenage girls, (it certainly didn'thit me)and is good for the drama queens.
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.
