Zoom Reviews

Zoom fails because it's ultimately bland, cheesy, and never really challenges its own formula seeking to make it one of a kind; it just wants to cash-in on an already exhausting fad.
August 22, 2006
Infantile, unfocused and dreadfully inept, Zoom is badly conceived...a totally faceless fable that strains for enlightenment but merely ends up as disastrous diversion

First the good news: This film isn't nearly as awful as some would have you believe. Now the bad: It still sucks.

The kids are cute, Allen is affable and charming, and Chevy Chase shows flashes of his old brilliance, but mostly it's a little kid movie with bad CGI effects and nary a moment of real jeopardy or emotion.
August 19, 2006
When it comes to action, comedy, and drama, three words apply: lamer, lamer, lamest.
August 18, 2006
Stink jokes, snot jokes, Smash Mouth songs, dependably dull Tim Allen, some truly obnoxious product placement and 'We're more than a team, we're a family' bromides leach the potential pleasure from this overfamiliar story...
August 18, 2006
Playi[s] like a cross between Galaxy Quest and Sky High but without the wit and cleverness of either film...
August 18, 2006
In a feat of dullness quite powerful in its own way, this lifeless family comedy sucks the joy from every joke it touches; X-Men's Rogue would be envious.
August 17, 2006
In all truthfulness, Zoom was better than I thought it would be...and by that, I mean that it didn't completely suck.
August 17, 2006
It's OK entertainment for preteens, while Cox adds some slapstick and love interest as a klutzy psychiatrist.
August 17, 2006
A cheap, ugly, forgettable footnote to the seemingly endless superhero boom.
August 16, 2006
derivative kiddie adventure falls flat on its face.
August 16, 2006
Lackadaisically executed on every level.
August 16, 2006
Zoom is another one of those endearingly cheap, twice-annual Tim Allen movies that seem to be forever playing on airplanes. (Next up is Santa Clause 3.)
August 16, 2006
Zoom is a movie that you've probably seen several times already.
August 16, 2006
Zoom is a bad movie. It's badly written, badly directed, badly acted, badly edited, badly scored and beyond badly overdubbed.
August 15, 2006
Dulled down into a mayo-and-bologna on white by a succession of dependably bland post-'Home Improvement' trifles, the light is gone from the eyes of Tim Allen.
August 15, 2006
Just exactly how desperate are you to get the kids out of the house and into the theater?
August 15, 2006
Just picture, if you will, Chevy Chase being covered by green slime. From someone's nose. If that's sets you guffawing, you won't want to miss "Zoom," an alleged family movie that is nothing of the sort.
August 14, 2006
Nobody involved with Zoom seems to get the appeal of comic books or kid superheroes. It doesn't help that the film was clearly produced on the cheap.
