Yawn. I think I’ve seen this before.
Seriously, this movie reminded me of Superbad, except this one was just… Super. Bad.
Entering into the over done genre of “it-all-happened-in-one-night”, Fun Size tells the story of Wren who is left to babysit her 8 year old brother on Halloween night and attempts to attend a Halloween party at the same time. Obviously a night of drama ensues.
The only thing i liked about this horrible movie was Chelsea Handler (who I adore). She play’s Wren’s mom and while her story line is as equally unbelievable as the rest of this movie, her delivery is hilarious. She always manages to get a laugh out of me.
Call me jaded but I’m just sick of this type of comedy. It’s no longer creative, witty or inventive. It’s tired, boring and repetitive. If you’re going to attempt something that has already been done at least try to improve on it.
Fun Size reuses the same old gags and jokes we’ve been seeing for the last 3-4 years in comedy movies. It offers nothing new to the audience and has an over the top, far fetched plot line that no one can relate to. The acting is sub par only adding more pain to the already too long hour and a half movie.
Seriously, don’t go see this movie unless you have nothing better to do this Halloween season. Personally, I’d rather spend 12 dollars on mini chocolate bars and spend my night pigging out and watching Can’t Hardly Wait. The 90’s was so much better.
Movie Rating: 1 out of 5 stars
