Fun Size (1/10)
by Tony Medley
Run time 96 minutes.
Not for children.
The good news about this film aimed
at an age level of about 4-14 is that it's only 96 minutes long. The bad
news is that it is 96 minutes long.
This is a redux of
another teen movie that exemplified rampant stupidity. Here the
brainless plot has Victoria Justice, an unambiguously beautiful girl,
that we are supposed to believe is an unpopular jerk. Yeah, sure. Oh,
Justice is a Nickelodeon star and the movie is produced by…Nickelodeon!
She is stuck with an annoying 8-year old little brother (Jackson
Nicoll), one of the more unattractive little children one will ever see
in the movies, who gets lost and becomes the movie's McGuffin. It's a
dumb plot worthy of an idiotic movie. The folks at Nickelodeon must have
realized that nobody would watch this on TV, so they stuck it in
theaters with the hope that somebody might spend money to see it.
As with most of these silly teen
movies this revolves around a party everyone wants to attend. These
parties are attended by what seems to be the entire world, and they are
little but total anarchy.
The film is replete with defecation
jokes and fat jokes and other kinds of humor director Josh Schwartz
apparently thinks is funny. My view is that even a four year old will
find this film even more vacuous than Project X.
There is nothing fun about this
movie. It's 96 minutes of sheer agony.
