QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: An unpopular teen yearns to go to a big Halloween party, but must first find her mischievous little brother after she loses him trick-or-treating.
PLOT:
Wren (VICTORIA JUSTICE) has had a rough year. Her father passed away, and her mother, Joy (CHELSEA HANDLER), appears to have moved on with a much younger man named Keevin (JOSH PENCE). Meanwhile, her little brother, Albert (JACKSON NICOLL), continues to be a mischievous nuisance even though he has gone mute as a reaction to his father's death.

All Wren and her best friend, April (JANE LEVY), want to do is go to a Halloween party thrown by the cutest guy in school, Aaron Riley (THOMAS McDONNELL), who has given her a personal invitation. But Joy has other ideas. She wants to go party with Keevin at his best friend Brueder's (JAMES PUMPHREY) house. So she places Wren in charge of Albert and forces her to take him trick or treating.

Unfortunately, the neighborhood is so crowded, Wren loses Albert who wanders off and befriends a convenience store clerk named Fuzzy (THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH) who enlists him to help get revenge on his ex-girlfriend. Wren, meanwhile, convinces her nerdy friends Roosevelt (THOMAS MANN) and Peng (OSRIC CHAU) to help her find Albert. Roosevelt has a secret crush on her, which his two lesbian mothers, Barb (KERI KENNEY) and Jackie (ANA GASTEYER), encourage him to act on.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes. The film is targeted at teens. But many pre-teens may also want to see it due to the popularity of Victoria Justice and her Nickelodeon show, "Victorious."
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For adult situations/language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
