28 March 2008 | by hayleyk9691See all my reviews

The only reason that I watched "Zoom" was because:

1.) There was nothing on TV and 2.) I was curious on HOW bad it was reviewed.

And not kidding.

Maybe because it was probably designed for younger kids...? Who knows, but all I know is that I could get the feeling out of my head that day: the feeling of humor-disgust. Tim Allen is Zoom, the superhero has-been who recruits four very different kids.

First is the adorable little Cindy, the strong little princess with super strength. But adding little pink tutus and blond curls didn't give the character a unique look like Kojack with candy.

Next is a teenage boy who, in the trailer, decides to render himself invisible -- in the middle of class. Um, hello? And the guy's got a thing for the next character.

Superhero #3 is a girl named Summer, who can movie things with her mind, which is cool, even when it was abused in this movie. Abused to throwing school food in the faces of cheerleaders in the the trailer. Girl has small thing for guy, which guy has a bigger thing for her.

Perhaps the most interesting character must be the fat boy, who can make himself even fatter when expanding any part of his body (from butt to first you name it) It's really annoying with the fact that he focuses on food than training.)

"Zoom" is not the best movie in the world, but maybe for children who still pin their blankets around their necks and pretend that they can fly. Either way, this movie was a wreck.
