Movie Reviews

Completely selfish review!
Bobby Brady | Georgia, USA | 01/30/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Critics are generally not very nice to movies like this one. I guess THEY didn't grow up watching this kind of stuff and don't have those fond memories (which explains the 4 stars). The night me and my family got cable tv in the early 80s (first ones in the neighborhood) this hilarious flick was on. Nudity on the boob tube was still something new to us. So Zapped! was just about the coolest naughty movie I'd ever seen. Watching it now is still a delight! Just silly non-sense...but awfully fun! The young lady from The Facts of Life tv show is great (and looks like my niece). Baio may be a little TOO nerdy, but he and Aames are believable friends. Plus, anything with Scatman Crothers (The Shining, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, Twilight Zone: The Movie) is worth seeing. This could be the 1982 equivalent of movies like American Pie. Just leave your brain at the door, pop this in the machine and you'll find much to enjoy on a lazy saturday afternoon. Try a triple feature with Sixteen Candles and Just One of The Guys (or Weird Science and The Breakfast Club). NOTES: The sign outside the music store says "8 Tracks". I feel so OLD!! Speaking of, there are at least 2 terrific songs on the soundtrack, "Got to believe in Magic", "King and Queen of Hearts", etc. Worth the price alone."
Biggest regret of my life

"One of the biggest regrets of my life was being in a video store about 10 years ago and seeing a new copy of Zapped for 12 bucks. I had the money but decided to buy beer with it. It still stings (but not as bad since you can get anything on Amazon now) The hunter doesn't hunt for the kill he hunts for the hunt. The Baio/Ames comedy tandem rivals Akroyd/Belushi in terms of comic timing and hilarity. One of my all-time favorite scenes is in this moving with an under the influence Scattman Crothers and some sort of gun that fires hot dogs or baloney (can't remember)"
Finally released on DVD- Its about time.

"Barney (Scott Baio)is a science geek who after an explosion in his science lab, develops Telekinsis (the ability to move things with his mind). After his best friend (Willie Aames) discovers his secret, all
kinds of chaos breaks loose. Wild and wacky fun. Great story and great cast. Finally On Dvd. Must see if you are looking to rediscover the 80's and watch a light hearted movie that is really funny and features a great soundtrack."
I Really Like This Movie!
Bobby Brady | 09/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know why critics are so hard on this movie, sure Zapped may not be a movie that you could picture getting an Oscar for best picture but I still think it is a good movie and I have a lot of fun watching it and I think Scott Baio, Willie Aames, Felice Schatcher and Heather Thomas all are good, there is nudity in this movie but only briefly and anyone who says that there is no nudity probably saw it edited on TV, I have the movie unedited on video and there is indeed brief nudity especially near the end of the movie during the dance, I am rating this cute, funny movie a 5 and I wish it would get onto a wide-screen DVD. Don't listen to the arty farty critics, they are a bunch of snobs who wouldn't know a fun enjoyable movie it it came up and bit them on their butts!"
