My Review of Fun Size http://www.ryanhawbecker.com/2012/11/fun-size-movie-review.html?spref=tw …
I'm sorry I couldn't post this movie review on time but all my homework from school and my book report on Marley and Me kept me from finishing it.
Four weeks ago, my mom, my stepdad, my little brother Jean Marco and I went to the movie theater to go see the 11:45 A.M. movie presentation of Fun Size.
I'm kind of disappointed that my movie theater wasn't playing The Perks of Being a Wallflower or Frankenweenie in 3D but I wanted to see Fun Size because the story sounded fun and I'm also a big fan of Victoria Justice. I think she’s a funny and gorgeous T.V. actress, I like her show Victorious on Nickelodeon and I also like some of the songs that she writes and sings for that fun and entertaining show.
I must admit to you that due to it’s use of sexual innuendo and little profanity, I was nervous that my parents would punish me for seeing a movie like this with them but thankfully the sexual innuendo was mild.
Fun Size takes place in Cleveland, Ohio on Halloween and it's about a 19 year old teenage girl named Wren Desantis (played by Victoria Justice) who gets invited to a Halloween Party hosted by her high school crush Aaron Riley (played by Thomas McDonell) along with her best friend April (played by Jane Levy). But Wren's mom Joy, (played by Chelsea Handler) tells her that she can't go to Aaron's party unless she takes her little trouble-making but likeable brother Albert (played by Jackson Nicoll), trick or treating for an hour while she goes to a Halloween party, dressed up as Britney Spears with her boyfriend Keevin (played by Josh Pence). So Wren dresses up as Dorothy from The Wizard of OZ, April dresses up as a sexy kitty and Albert dresses up as as a one-armed Spider-Man and they go get candy. But Wren accidently looses Albert inside a haunted house and he goes to a get snow cone drink and some candy in a convenience store where he meets the nice clerk named Fuzzy (played by Thomas Middleditch). Fuzzy tells Albert to help him get his revenge on his ex-girlfriend's boyfriend and Albert agrees. With the help of their two friends Roosevelt, dressed up as a teenage version of Theodore Roosevelt (played by Thomas Mann) and Peng, dressed up as an old man (played by Osric Chau) Wren and April drive around Cleveland in Roosevelt's car trying to find Albert before Wren's mom comes home from the Halloween party.
Fun Size was written by Max Werner and I thought he did a great job writing this very funny and charming story.
Victoria Justice makes a charming debut into movie acting by making Wren a smart and likeable character, Thomas Mann and Victoria have a great chemistry on screen and most of the laughs of the movie come whenever Jackson Nicoll is acting in a scene with Thomas Middleditch, Chelsea Handler also does a good job as Wren's mom and Jane Levy and Osric Chau have the funny moments or lines involving sexual innuendo.
Fun Size marks the directing debut of Josh Schwartz and I thought he directed this movie with a very nice and sweet touch.
Deborah Lurie who did some nice but uncredited additional music for Spider-Man 3 writes and composed some lively music for Fun Size.
I liked the great message in Fun Size which is about Wren learning that the little things in life that she doesn't notice so much are the most important things in life.
Even though Fun Size has a lot of funny moments and lines involving sexual innuendo, it's still a fun, funny and sweet movie with a great message that you would expect to be produced by Nickelodeon Movies and my family and I liked the movie. So if you like Victoria Justice and Victorious, then I think you will like Fun Size just like I did.
I give Fun Size a low Full Price!! and I hope you enjoy Fun Size.
I like Jane Levy on Suburgatory but I was unsure about her taking on this role from what I saw from the trailer. Glad you at least found something redeeming in her performance.
@Jon: you are so lucky.
How I imagine Co-Host feels about the show.
the consensus for this movie for some reason on RottenTomatoes was 38% then dropped to 29-28% '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.'
this verdict is complete BS!!!
and here's a pic of my meet with her last Syracuse at my State Fair:
saw the movie with my older sister, a couple things though: Chelsea Handler should have had more funny lines and the school scene in the trailer should not have been cut out, and it did feel a bit like 'Gossip Girl' with the music and the dramatic moments
the biggest reasons I went to see this movie: watching Victorious, meeting Victoria Justice in-person, the little brother dressing up as Spider-Man(I'm a Spider-Man fan, but NOT counting the reboot), and the trailer made me laugh
we laughed and liked it a lot
these critics are just morons saying it's not funny
oh and Spill Crew and Brian, did you guys see Victoria Justice at any of her tour spots last summer? she had a big music tour and it rocked so much, I had to pay 150 dollars for the VIP package just to meet her
she is sensational and a good listener, I didn't really get into Victorious until I heard about this tour and my buddy Matt saying how cool she is, I watched it and fell in love with it including Ariana Grande as Kat Valentine, I would take this show so much more than damn Big Time Rush and iCarly, Ive always loved Nick movies btw Brian
and your right, MavenCree that really seemed like an unfair non-compelling argument just for her to get an education
still, I really liked this movie a lot and Victoria did an amazing job
last thing: my older sister recognized the redhead, Jane Levy from Suburgatory on TV so essentially you have 3 TV stars in this movie
my 2 best things in this movie:
Wait... so according to the sound clip at 3:45 - if she didn't babysit her brother, her mother wasn't going to let her go to college? Seriously?
Kudos to Leon for remembering the movie Take Me Home Tonight enough to reference it.
