If there’s one thing that the American tradition of Halloween is great for, it’s the slutification of beloved and innocent costumes. Not that that should be the primary reason to celebrate something foreign, but I’m just throwing that out there.
Or you could have an adventurous time babysitting, with these Halloween hijinks gone awry in the trailer for Fun Size!
“Fun Size” is a teen comedy centered on a sarcastic high school senior, Wren, 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 judgment.
This unlikely foursome embarks on a high-stakes, all-night adventure to find Albert, crossing paths with outrageous characters every step of the way.
It’s another wild night of costumes, sex, precocious kids, vandalism and being humped by a giant robot chicken in this movie, the directorial debut of Josh “Gossip Girl” Schwartz.
The film stars Victoria “iCarly” Justice, Chelsea Handler, Jane Levy and Jackson Nicoll. It looks like your typical “one crazy night” film, complete with the required shenanigans, horny virgins, crazy kids, bitchy best friend and that one who is like totally, cool, OMG!
It’ll be out in time for Halloween this year.
