A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.
This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.
The biggest problem with this movie is it’s a little better than you think it might be, which somehow makes it worse. As in, it takes itself a bit too seriously, which makes most of the movie feel kind of dull.
There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
This movie was simply the most sexist, stereotypical and cliché movie of Disney I have ever watched. (Oh, and I watched a ton of Disney Channel Originals.) Me and my two BFF's were very bored while watching this. (The oldest was twelve, the youngest was eleven.) I was texting and the other two were talking about nail polish. And just when Zoey and the hot guy was kissing, I lifted my head, and guess what I saw, the most unrealistic kiss ever! Zendaya is a great actor, but not in this nutcase. The girl who played Taylor wasn't showing any emotion when Zoey's team won. She was just standing there. Just standing. I was shocked. If Walt Disney was alive, he would literally reject the film. But, whoever runs this place now, probably wasn't even caring about what they do here. At least the other movies weren't as SEXIST and STUPID as this. Zendaya was clearly NOT happy about this project, and the other actors just wanted to finish it as fast as possible. Oh, and only one person in our school disliked the movie because She was the only one who tried to watch it. This movie is like a cringe video LeafyIsHere reviews, and I'm pretty sure someone will review this someday and kill their selves over THE CRINGE of this. The only good part, Zendaya was in it.
this movie is so sexist it call boys dogs and stupid and it say boys ruined everything this is a the worst movie ever and I'm so surprise that Disney make this as a male is so offend of this movie this a bad movie this movie is a flop i hate this movie this movie should be ban forever they shouldn't be so sexist this is a low for Disney . i think no one should watch it this is such a bad movie and the acting is bad zendaya was good but everyone else was bad and the plot was bad an app that control boys but not girls also really Disney that even more sexist the app should had control everyone this movie was thee most sexist movie ever i hate this movie you should not watch this movie ever
I'm only eighteen, I'm not some middle-aged, ranting old lady. But only today's generation of cellular phone addicts and texting slaves would inspire Disney to make a movie called Zapped (emphasis on the word 'app' in 'zapped' was their intent, ugh). The characters were all cardboard cutouts of the trendy, popular cell phone-carrying, texting addict teens of today. I think movies should be teaching kids to stay away from cell phones, not to fall victim to the hoards of people who stumble through the streets constantly texting everyone. The plot was incredibly stupid, too! Basically an overly generic girl finds an app on her I-phone that can control boys around her. It's a dog-training app.My little brother and sister hated it, so if Disney thinks kids like this kind of thing, well, only the sheep like movies like this, there are probably loads of other kids who don't like it, either. What ever happened to the days when on a rainy day or after school, you could have fun with Disney movies like Don't Look Under the Bed (1999)? Disney channel movies weren't always sinking as low as Zapped, there were some very memorable ones from earlier times. I'm not trying to sound old or anything, but television today is seriously degrading if people seriously want to watch this.
I watched this film out of curiosity just to see what it was like and it was the worst film ever, it was rather offensive to me. A magical phone app that controls boys in the hands of a teenage girl who apparently refused to accept boys for who they are, even if they have flaws. They tried to make it seem like all girls were perfect and boys were the cause of all problems but it showed that girls are not all that perfect as they claim to be and that they blame boys for their personal problems that boys are not the cause of. The mean girl in the film, she actually annoys me, she's proves that when she has the phone with the magical app that she's a criminal, well, she only acts like one and her friend, although not as mean as her but even the mean girl is mean to her.But this whole film is demeaning to all boys, I'm a boy and I found this to be the idea of a woman, even though it was a man who directed it. This whole film seems to be screaming the term "Man-Haters" all over it. Zendaya as usual had to dance, the acting in this was horrible, the plot and story was nothing but garbage and insulting to boys. The whole time I watched it, I couldn't be more offended and I felt like hated every minute of it and everything about it. I find it demeaning and insulting to boys, I actually couldn't stop talking back to the film and the characters in it. I'm surprised this film didn't bomb. Although the thing about this film that satisfied me was that the girls in this finally learned that all boys are innocent and the girls were guilty of every evil thing through the whole plot and story. This film should never seen the light of day the minute they thought of it. I never hated any film in my whole life and this film is hateful to all boys and I think this film deserves to be hated for being the worst film ever and demeaning to boys. This film is nothing but an attack on boys and it screams "Man-Haters" all over.
