Best For Tweens (10-12)
Rated PG-13
Age-By-Age Guide
High school senior Wren (Victoria Justice) spends Halloween searching for her little brother, Albert, who disappeared while she was supposed to be trick-or-treating with him.

Although it sounds a little scary from the description, this is a comedy and there's never any doubt that Albert and Wren will be reunited--and more closely bonded for the experience. Because of its crude humor and innuendo, the movie is best-suited for teens but older tweens--who will appreciate the story's Revenge of the Nerds message--will consider it a real treat.
Baby (0-2)
No This movie is intended for older children.
Preschool (3-5)
No This movie is intended for older children.
Kids (6-9)
No This movie is intended for older children.
Tweens (10-12)
Maybe Kids in this age group will want to see the movie because of Victoria Justice, who stars in the popular TV show Victorious, but there's too much that's inappropriate for those on the younger end, including Chelsea Handler as Wren and Albert's widowed mom who's going out with a 26-year-old guy. Older tweens will find it empowering that brainy Wren never acts like someone else to impress the popular kids, and that although the "hot" guy at school ends up falling in love with her, she's more interested in the nerd who's been her true friend.
