Kernel Rating (out of 5):
MPAA Rating: PG-13 Length: 90 minutes
Age Appropriate for: 13+. Really, really not for young fans of Victoria Justice’s show “Victorious”; this is best for teens and up. Lots of sexual content, including kissing, discussions about sex, sexual innuendo, and jokes; bathroom humor, cursing, and vulgarity; and drinking. Again, not for kids.
‘Fun Size’ is supposedly a Halloween movie, but it’s really just a flat piece of teenage fodder. Unfunny, not cute, and majorly inappropriate for the young audience Nickelodeon is marketing the film toward.

Halloween movies are, so often, great! There’s “Hocus Pocus,” “Casper,” “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”—all bona-fide classics, tapping into the festive nature of the holiday with a little bit of spook thrown in, too. “Fun Size” isn’t going to be added to those all-time greats, though. “Fun Size” isn’t great at anything.
