Rated PG; Directed by Peter Hewitt; Starring Tim Allen, Courtney Cox, Chevy Chase
Jeez, how painful can a summer movie be? Well, if the movie is “Zoom” then it can hurt pretty bad. This children’s film stars Tim Allen as an ex-superhero, called Zoom, who must train the next generation of superheroes. He’s lost his zoom-like powers and isn’t serious about his new job. Of course, by the end of the movie he and the kids come together as a team to save the day. Sigh.
Exciting? No. Involving? No. Funny? Except for one moment when Zoom trips the answer is…no. Save your money.
