IF THIS, SHAGGY DOG and SANTA CLAUSE 3 HADN'T GOTTEN TIM ALLEN a NOMINATION for WORST ACTOR of 2006, WE'D HAVE DEMANDED a RECOUNT!  OH, AND 100% of the CRITICS at ROTTEN TOMATOES AGREE: THIS PICTURE RILLY SUX!!

Tim Allen: "See, kids, we Jerry-rigged this film, grafting plot elements and effects from other, more original movies, thus creating a sort of Frankenstein's Monster of a family film..."

 

UPDATE (11/21/06): ZOOM now ranks #2 on the IMDb's 100 WORST Movies of All Time list. Here's a LINK to check out the complete list...

I can see why Fox tried to sue Sony: After seeing the trailer and reading up on this, it does look like a cheap rip-off of X-MEN.

What's next for Tacky Tim?  Santa Clauski, The North Pole?????????

Response from Head RAZZberry: Actually, SANTA CLAUSE 3: THE ESCAPE CLAUSE is due for release on November 3. I just saw a full-length trailer for it at a matinée today, and I must say, it sure LOOKS like a RAZZIE Contender: Martin Short as Jack Frost looks like he may be even more deserving of a nod than Tim Allen -- Only question is, will Short's character belong in Worst Actor or Worst Supporting Actor? According to the IMDb,  Ann-Margret is also in it, but was nowhere to be seen in the promo...hmmm...

Seeing the trailer got me to wondering: Why on Earth did they make a THIRD entry in this series? I thought I remembered that SANTA CLAUSE 2 had bombed (I do remember it SUCKED!). Then I went to check on B.O. MoJo, and found out that the first SANTA CLAUSE made $144 million domestic, and the second...$139 million. Maybe move-goers' willingness to go see crap like this is at least partly to blame for Hollywood churning out one drecky sequel after another??

The saddest thing about Tim Allen is that he can't seem to find any good movie to do. Whenever I watch the two TOY STORY movies, they just remind me how good he once was...   

Response from Head RAZZberry: Well, the daze when Tim Allen made anything worthwhile seem to be over -- Among his up-coming projects is something set to start shooting next March entitled IN THE PINK, in which he and Cher are apparently set to play the parents of...Britney Spears. According to The IMDb, Bette Midler is also set to appear in it...

The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

Yeah, seriously, Tim should stick to voice-over work.

Wait, only Fox sued? Geez, it's probably full of so many other unoriginal ideas, why doesn't the entire film industry sue?

As a Razzie member, I feel almost obligated to see something that looks this awful, but my ten-year-old refuses to go with me...which actually makes me kinda proud of him!

Well, my 8 year old son and 4 year old daughter want to see it anyways. The good news is they have no problem in waiting till it hits the markdown ($2 bucks) theatre. And as bad as it looks, we should see it there by the end of this month!

This looks like it could "sweep" the 2007 RAZZIES for sure! Anyways, I thought Cher retired? Also, it may  get delayed if K-Fed knocks Britney up again!!!

I remember Allen did a decent job in a film called "Who is Cletus Tout?" which portended a decent career in indies. Unfortunately, he didn't take the hint...

Oh My Freakin' God !!!! ZOOM is sitting at a all time low of ZERO% over at Rotten Tomatoes. RAZZ, I think you may have found the movie you've been waiting to nail Tim On. Shaggy Dog looks like Gone with the Wind compared to this!!!

Zoom Movie Stills: Tim Allen, Courteney Cox, Rip Torn, Peter Hewitt

Response from Head RAZZberry: The only other film in recent memory to score a ZERO on RT was Roberto Benigni's PINOCCHIO, which went on to take 6 RAZZIE® nominations (including Worst Picture) and "won" Worst Actor of 2002 for Benigni...

Well, right now Tim Allen seems to be in a pretty close race with Rob Schneider (for his horrid performance in "Benchwarmers"). I have a feeling it will be very hard for Razzie members to decide whom to vote for, at least in the Worst Actor category! Clearly, no one person's awful performance really stands out!!!

Isn't that Spencer Breslin as the fat kid? He has an award all his own and very much deserves it.

Maybe Sony did not have a big enough budget on wardrobe after blowing it on Tim Allen's paycheck!

You're not going to believe this, but I just checked RT to see  any more reviews of ZOOM. Not only have there been no additional reviews to the 20 posted on Friday...one was retracted. Now it's down to 19 (Still at 0% approval). I guess this movie was so bad, at least one critic did not want his or her name associated with it in any way...

Checked out RT this morning; Good news is, the review that was missing came back (still rotten) plus 3 more. Even better news: ZOOM is still at a big fat 0% approval rating (I wonder if the meter can go into negative numbers, like -66%).
