Consensus: Lacking the punch and good cheer of The Incredibles and Sky High, Zoom is a dull and laugh-free affair.

Rob Mackie

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 comedy drags its feet, while the sappy sweetness will make you wince.

The end result is really a film that more sputters than zooms, but survives mainly upon the strength of its committed cast with an obvious chemistry.

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

Boxoffice Magazine

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.

The script could've been salvaged if it had a cast to pull it off, but everybody seems like they're just in it for a paycheck.

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

When it comes to action, comedy, and drama, three words apply: lamer, lamer, lamest.

Although it is aimed at very young children, Zoom doesn't even work as a kid flick. It is truly one of the worst films of the year.

Too much time is devoted to training these superhero kids and not enough battles in the real world. Their powers were odd-ball. The jokes about their costumes… More
