'Fun Size' -- zero stars

<b>PG-13; 1:18 running time</b><br><br>
The film, itself a Nickelodeon product, is rated PG-13 and therefore is out to ensnare every preteen paying customer it can find. But it's a soul-crusher, and when I say it may be the most dehumanizing experience since "Hostel: Part II" the comparison is not an idle one.

Dressed as Spider-Man, young Albert (Jackson Nicoll) gets lost, and the high school senior Wren (Justice) and her alleged best friend (Jane Levy) must revise their plans to go to the cool kids party. They embark on a weirdly blase boy-hunt for the missing Albert. -- Michael Phillips<br><br><a href=http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/movies/sc-mov-1023-fun-size-20121025,0,5298031.column>Read the full "Fun Size" movie review</a>
