Fun Size is a comedy movie that was released in 2012. It stars Victoria Justice, who plays the lead role of Wren, a high school senior who is excited about attending the Halloween party of the year. However, she has been given the responsibility of taking care of her younger brother, Albert (Jackson Nicoll), who is an eccentric kid with a passion for pranks.

Wren's mother (Chelsea Handler) makes her promise to take Albert out trick-or-treating for the night, but things go awry when Albert disappears into a sea of trick-or-treaters. Wren enlists the help of her best friend April (Jane Levy) to find him, and they embark on a wild, hilarious journey that takes them through various parties, shady nightclubs, and other adventures in their quest to save Albert and get him back home safely.

On their journey, they encounter some colorful characters, such as Roosevelt (Thomas Mann), a nerdy high school student who harbors a crush on Wren, and Fuzzy (Thomas McDonell), a creepy guy who offers to help them find Albert in exchange for a favor. Meanwhile, Wren's mom is out on her own wild night, getting up to all sorts of shenanigans with a new boyfriend (Johnny Knoxville), and the clock is ticking as they try to get Albert home before their mother finds out what has happened.

The movie is a classic coming-of-age tale, set against the backdrop of a chaotic Halloween night in suburban America. It explores themes of love, friendship, family, and growing up, as Wren learns to take responsibility for her actions and face her fears. Despite the wacky plot and over-the-top characters, the movie has heart, and the performances of the cast are excellent.

Victoria Justice is a standout as Wren, bringing a sense of groundedness and vulnerability to the role that makes her easy to root for. Jackson Nicoll is hilarious as Albert, with impeccable comic timing and a genuine sense of mischief that keeps the audience laughing. Chelsea Handler brings her trademark wit and irreverence to the role of Wren's mom, while Johnny Knoxville is suitably outrageous as her new boyfriend.

The supporting cast is also great, with Thomas Mann playing the lovestruck Roosevelt with an endearing awkwardness, and Jane Levy bringing a sassy energy to the role of April. Thomas McDonell is creepy and unreliable as Fuzzy, and Osric Chau is memorable as Peng, a groupie who becomes Wren's unlikely ally.

The movie is directed by Josh Schwartz, who is best known for creating TV shows such as The O.C. and Gossip Girl. He brings his signature blend of humor and heart to the movie, crafting a story that is both hilarious and poignant. The script, written by Max Werner, is clever and snappy, with plenty of memorable one-liners and hilarious set pieces.

Overall, Fun Size is a fun and entertaining movie that is perfect for a Halloween night in with friends. It may not be the most sophisticated or nuanced film out there, but it is a good time, and it has a lot of heart. The performances are solid, the humor is sharp, and the story is engaging, making it a worthwhile addition to anyone's movie collection.

Fun Size is a 2012 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 26 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 37.
