The title describes the sound that you should make in your car, or on foot, or on mule, heading away from any cinema showing this film.

... this fizzled action flick lacks the wit, style and substance of so many better efforts ...

... a copycat kids' flick that raises smiles but no laughs.

This comedy drags its feet, while the sappy sweetness will make you wince.
August 19, 2006
When it comes to action, comedy, and drama, three words apply: lamer, lamer, lamest.
August 19, 2006
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 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
A cheap, ugly, forgettable footnote to the seemingly endless superhero boom.
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 14, 2006
Family-friendly premise notwithstanding, this seemingly innocuous fare scarcely hides the contempt most studio executives must harbor for their audiences.
August 14, 2006
Too infantile for tweens and too stagnant for tots, Zoom bleeds boredom from every frame.
August 12, 2006
Your ability to tolerate this movie depends on how much music from the band Smashmouth you can stand.
August 12, 2006
The only noteworthy thing about the movie, in fact, is a sort of casual racial insensitivity.
August 12, 2006
Shabbily filmed and resolutely unfunny.
August 12, 2006
Cox falls down three times, Allen belches and Chase gets covered with buckets of green snot. Scenes keep ending on non-jokes like this exchange: 'No way!' 'Way!'
August 12, 2006
Frankly, this would have been a perfect candidate for the straight-to-DVD shelf. But the young stars are appealing, and at this point in his career, Allen could carry a family film with one hand tied behind his back.
August 12, 2006
The under-achieving Zoom resembles nothing so much as as a subpar episode of a failed Disney Channel teleseries.
August 12, 2006
The director of Zoom is Peter Hewitt, who also directed Garfield. Nothing more to say about that.
August 12, 2006
A crashing, thudding dullness infects every moment of Zoom.
