One-line Reviews (21)

The three leads were all TV actors (Baio from _Happy Days_, Aames from _Eight is Enough_, and Schachter from _The Facts of Life_), so they resort to that bland TV style of acting, making _Zapped!

only worth watching for Heather Thomas & Jewel Shepard .

But it was just kind of boring.

This coming of age comedy has some great moments, from saucy skin glimpses to flying mattresses.

Don't waste your time on this tripe.

Baio is enjoyable and Aames is a lot of fun, even though his character is kind of scummy at times.

Entertaining Banal Baio .

Very fun, entertaining movie .

The lively and engaging acting from a game cast qualifies as a major plus: the adorable Felice Schachter as sweet school newspaper reporter geek Bernadette, Robert Mandan as pompous principal Walter J.

Also there are a couple really bad slow love songs on the soundtrack.

Apart from that is totally and utterly unwatchable.

Well, she fell asleep, so I got to watch the whole thing.

_ was made in 1982, a bland year if ever there was one.

Everything is predictable - the love interests that will be established, the tampering that will be done with the mind powers, and the end results.

Funny but boring .

The story, script and effects are ridiculous but its a thoroughly entertaining film from start to finish.

But the banal venture is not without merit.

Enjoyable mindless viewing - mainly for the young .

But I found it enjoyable overall.

Unfortunately, the acting is bland along with the rest of the movie.

I remember "Zapped" as an enjoyable light comedy of the feel good variety which was totally devoid of any serious content.
