Wren's Halloween plans go awry when she's made to babysit her brother, who disappears into a sea of trick-or-treaters. With her best friend and two nerds at her side, she needs to find her brother before her mom finds out he's missing.
Sardonic Wren (Victoria Justice) hails from an unusually dysfunctional family. She can't wait until she escapes to college and leaves them all behind, but in the meantime, an invitation to the biggest Halloween party in the area at least offers her an excuse to get out of the house for a night. But when Wren is placed on babysitting duty so her mother can dash out and party with her handsome young boy toy, the dejected teen reluctantly takes her little brother Albert out for a night of trick-or-treating. Later, when Albert vanishes into a sea of costumed kids, his panicked sister enlists the help of her best friend April, wannabe womanizer Peng, and his charmingly geeky pal Roosevelt to track down her missing brother, and get him safely back home while their mother remains none the wiser. Meanwhile, over the course of one wild and unpredictable Halloween night, the group's frantic search lands them in some pretty outlandish situations, and provides Roosevelt with the perfect ...
The song heard when Roosevelt, Wren, Peng and April arrive at Captain Chicken is "Three Little Maids", from Act 1 of the 1885 comic opera, "The Mikado" by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. Here, it is sung by Gospel musician Christopher Jon Winston. See more »

Roosevelt, I'm so sorry! I'll tell your moms it was all my fault! I made you do it!
No, you didn't make me do anything! I-I wanted to!
Oh, really? You wanted to spend your Halloween driving all throughout town in a rolling "Kick Me" sign? You wanted to get violated? By a giant ...

It reminded me a lot of the 1987 film Adventures in Babysitting. It seriously irritates me when a parent acts like a teenager, and the kids have to grow up too soon to take care of the parents. It just hit a little too close to home for me. There were some funny parts and a lot of cheesy ones. Not a family film, so don't watch it with the kids. Not that great of a movie, but an alternative to the horror fest of men killing teens with knives, saws, chainsaws, etc, and there are some lessons to be learned.
