4.0 out of 5 stars Completely selfish review! Jan. 30 2002
Format:VHS Tape
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scott Baiowulf Oct. 26 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Finally, a video re-release of Zapped!, most likely the finest 1980's T&A teenager flick of all time. If it had been available to buy 5 years ago, I wouldn't have had to steal my copy from a video store in Cleveland.
Let's make something clear first, this is NOT a good movie. It's really bad. So bad it's good. When you put together a team of mediocre television actors, Scatman Crothers, a loose plot that exists for no other reason than to show T&A, and some of the most absurd dream sequences ever put to film, you have nowhere to go but insanity. And that's just where Zapped! takes you. Once you see it, you'll never forget it, even if you hate it. It's a film that will never be truly appreciated for it's chaotic genius and pure intentions (those intentions being - "let's show the kids some nudity" - what's more pure than that?). But what can we expect from a society that gives Tom Hanks awards for sap like Forrest Gump and completely ignores his truly shining moments in The Burbs?
Now, if only they'd do a VHS reissue of Scott Baio's finest acting ever in the made for TV special "Stoned."

There is pain. There is anguish. And then, there is ZAPPED!.
The nicest thing that can be said about this picture is that all 10 fans of "Charles in Charge" can gather in one room and thrill to the first onscreen pairing of Scott Baio and Willie Ames. Baio plays Barney Springboro (and with a name like that, you know it's nerd time, despite the actor's then-irrefutable teen idol status), a brilliant high school student who, thanks to a rather convoluted and ridiculous chain of events (see below), falls prey to a chemical explosion in his lab, and awakes with telekinesis, which we all know is the ability to burst open and then tear off entirely the clothing of nearby actresses (not to mention Heather Thomas' stand-in).
Now, even to a comic book fan like me, the circumstances leading up to Barney's accident are mind-staggeringly stupid. As near as I can tell, mixing Jack Daniels, and then beer, with a rapid-growth plant fertilizer will a) result in a violent explosion that b) will endow any mammal nearby with the power of mind over matter. One can almost hear the film's producers saying through chomped cigar stubs, "Who cares HOW he gets the powers -- just get to the naked girls!" I mean, come on, folks -- booze plus fertilizer = Uri Geller??
Believe it or not, things go downhill from there. Willie Ames, looking only seven or eight years too old for his role, is the "bad influence" on the personality void that is Barney, convincing him to "use his powers" (heh) to win baseball games and fights with bullies and roulette exhibitions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delivers exactly what you expect it to! March 11 2002
By pete69
Format:VHS Tape
Movies of this type are pretty rare nowdays, but during the mid-eighties they were everywhere.
What makes this movie stand out is it's charm.
The acting by the leads (Baio,Aames,Schachter & Thomas) is great and the characters, though a little stereo-typed,are well fleshed out.
Scatman Crothers is criminally underused as the wisecracking school coach and Robert Mandan and Sue Ane Langdon's affair doesn't really go anywhere.
Worth seeing if you're into the following:-
Scott Baio: Gives a great performance of the school scientist torn between his best friend's gambling stunts and the love of his girlfriend.
Heather Thomas:Fresh from 'The Fall Guy', Thomas plays the token snooty cheerleader and plays her very well.
The nudity content is a little too strong for youngsters which is a shame because this is an adolescent's perfect movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars FAST TIME AT RIDGEMONT HIGH MEETS CARRIE May 10 2000
Format:VHS Tape
A very interesting movie...funny at parts with strong supporting performances from Felice Schatcher (who played Nancy on the Facts of Life's first season) and buxom Heather Thomas (who looks too OLD and well developed to be a high schooler). Scott Baio developed telekinetic powers and mainly to use it for personal gains. The ending of the film borrowed heavily from the film Carrie...but with a twist of course! Clothes started coming off everyone in the prom with interesting results. Watching the final scenes you get the impression that teenage girls DO NOT wear bras and that guys wear red bikini briefs with the Rolling Stone's lips logo on the crotch.
A funny film nonetheless and is not supposed to be based on reality (GOD FORBID!)
