Fun Size is a teen comedy centred on a sarcastic high school senior, Wren (Victoria Justice), who is eager to distance herself from her dysfunctional family by going off to college. Before that can happen, Wren's mother, Joy, insists that she watch her little brother Albert on Halloween night, so Joy can go to a rager with her much younger boyfriend. When Wren gets distracted by an invitation to the party of the year, Albert disappears into a sea of trick-or-treaters. Frantic to locate him before their mother discovers he's missing, Wren enlists the help of her sassy best friend April, as well as Peng, an aspiring ladies man and co-captain of the debate team, and Peng's best friend, Roosevelt, a sweet nerd whose crush on Wren clouds his better judgement. This unlikely foursome embarks on a high-stakes, all-night adventure to find Albert, crossing paths with outrageous characters every step of the way.

Set on October 31 in Cleveland, when the entire city dons fancy dress to trick or treat, Fun Size is the sort of upbeat coming of age story that John Hughes made almost 30 years ago. Only his portraits of teen angst - Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off - were beautifully crafted around a nub of painful self-reflection. Fun Size doesn't concern itself with such trifles as genuine emotion.
