Fun Size

(PG-13) ☆☆☆☆☆

This Halloween film concerns a Cleveland high school senior (Victoria Justice) who misplaces her preteen brother (Jackson Nicoll) on trick-or-treat night. This film is a soul-crusher, completely devoid of any humor, point, quality or value. The narrative shape recalls other more successful one-crazy-night comedies such as Adventures in Babysitting, but it fails magnificently. I don’t know for whom the hell this bell tolls. Maybe it will toll for Nickelodeon-fed offspring, but I doubt it.

REVISITED: Have to tread carefully here. You see, I’m not a huge fan of Bob Dylan, who’s playing Mandalay Bay on Oct. 27 with Mark Knopfler opening ($69-$143). But I don’t mean to say that I’m not a fan at all: I like many of Dylan’s songs, and my respect for his songwriting and performing talents is genuine and true. But I’m not half the fan some of my friends are, and “real” Dylan fans think their alpha singer-songwriter is above reproach. Even when Dylan’s bad, they tell me, he’s brilliant.
