Rejoice! Helium-voiced YouTube sensation Fred Figglehorn (Lucas Cruikshank) gets his own movie, which sees the troublesome teen vie with bully Kevin (Jake Weary) for the affections of girl-next-door Judy (pop star Pixie Lott, looking uncomfortable).

Screeching like a slasher-flick victim, Cruikshank treats us to an increasingly moronic series of pratfalls which promote kid-friendly ideals like junk food, xenophobia and the joys of playing with electric cables.

Even young fans of the online shorts will find the concept stretched perilously thin. And if your eardrums don’t break, your spirit certainly will.
