Fun Size

What I liked:

  • It was filmed in Cleveland!  The story takes place in the city as well so there are some nice shots of the suburbs, the Metro Parks, and downtown.
  • Victoria Justice plays a smart and caring teenage girl.
  • It also stars Thomas Mann, Chelsea Handler, Thomas Middleditch, Kerri Kenney, Ana Gasteyer, Abbey Elliott, Riki Lindhome, and Johnny Knoxville.
  • Jackson Nicoll does well as Albert.
  • There are a few funny lines.

What I didn't like:
  • Did they have to make fun of Cleveland in the first five minutes?  Clevelanders don't still think of themselves as the mistake on the lake.  
  • Who is the target audience for this?  It's too adult for little kids and too lame for older ones.
  • Unnecessary use of profanity and sexual innuendos for a Nickelodeon movie.
  • Apparently the message of "don't go anywhere with a stranger" was lost on the writers.
  • Not enough of Abbey Elliott or Riki Lindhome.
  • It's a weak script.

Grade: C
