How to Eat Fried Worms Review

Image for How to Eat Fried Worms

During the first day of his new school year, a fifth grade boy squares off against a bully and winds up accepting a dare that could change the balance of power within the class.

★★★★★

Pushing the notion of an adult-friendly kids’ film to its limit, this cheerily disgusting comedy revels in all the greasiest parts of being a small boy. Cursed with the most sensitive of stomachs, new kid Billy (Luke Benward) finds himself taking a dare from the school bully to eat ten worms in one day. Egged on by classmates and dignified beanpole Erika (Hallie Kate Eisenberg), the only thing standing in his way is having to mind his baby brother, whose own eating habits would make a hyena blush.

An endearingly old-fashioned style makes this a naughty thrill for kids, who will love the ick factor.
