Thoughts: Hello, my name is Joe and I’m a sucker for these kinds of movies that ride the fence between teenybopper cinema and more adult comedy. When the preview began and the Nickelodeon logo appeared I anticipated yet another sigh and release sort of effort that I’d pass on in the theaters/Redbox. Surprisingly, this looks to be a vehicle clearly made for the tween crowd but one I wouldn’t mind taking a further look at. Having Johnny Knoxville and Chelsea Handler in the mix also raised my critical eyebrow – known for their adult comedy there had to have been something that attracted them to the project. Additionally, the trailer has a nice share of laughs and the film seems to be made with a crisp shine to it. I’m sure the overall effect of Fun Size will be just that…small and forgettable but it might just be satiating enough for October audiences.
