Eleven-year-old Billy inadvertently challenges the town bully on his first day at a new school. To save face and earn the respect of his new classmates, Billy agrees to a bet that will determine his fate at the school–whether or not he can eat ten worms in one day. As the pressure mounts, he must summon heroic strength to keep his five-year-old brother from blabbing, his weak stomach from betraying him, and his big mouth from getting him into more trouble than he’s already in.
Walden Media has partnered with New Line Cinema to bring How to Eat Fried Worms to the big screen. The movie was filmed in Austin, Texas from July 25th through September 19, 2005.
How to Eat Fried Worms is now in theaters.
