It could have been the director putting it up in a last-ditch effort to get anything good out of it, knowing that unless he's got strong ties to the brass, they're not going to call him again after doing this for a good long while.

I am very surprised that Chevy Chase, who has made many terrible movies, has never gotten a razzie nomination. I think he deserved a long overdue nomination for worst supporting actor in ZOOM. He was worse than Danny Devito, and should have taken Devito's place.

Truthfully, I don't really think Chevy really cares much about it anymore.  He seems rather frustrated that they shoehorned him into the wacky guy role every single time, combined with his own acute bad judgement over the years--you can sense a certain degree of bitterness with him whenever he gives interviews--and that they never gave him the chance to do the dramatic bits he wanted to try, so he's resigned to whatever rubbish they toss at him next.

One last bit:  in Chev's recently released authorized biography (meaning several things may be exaggerated), he complains they cut a load of his material out of the theatrical cut without telling him at all (and that's necessarily a bad thing in this case?).  Not surprisingly, he does seem to be thoroughly humiliated by the end result, and it's dismissed in 3 sentences.

This was actually worse than "Basic Instinct 2"!

Not too much really, but he does say on a related note that he was essentially tricked into Vegas Vacation, that Warners simply had him signed for a general concept, and then worked it into another Griswold flick at the last second behind his back.  He also thinks Terry Semel has a part in the decline of roles offered to him, reportedly stemming from an incident in the early 90s where, as he tells it, Semel took his wife's seat at a reception and flew into a blind "You'll never work in this town again" rage when he pointed this out.  Again, being an authorized biography, it would be best to assume there's some truth to it, although somewhat played up in his favor.

A review for this picture is now at AgonyBooth.com, which has to be the fastest a film's gotten there yet.

Actually, "Eragon" beat "Zoom" to the cut at AgonyBooth.com.

My mistake.  Reading them both over, I'd have to give a slight nod to Eragon; they were at least creative enough to plagarize (and indeed why hasn't Lucas sued them yet?), whereas this was apparently meant specifically to antagonize the audience in revenge for some other film not being watched, and to do so in a way that suggests they only bought a concept back in pitching, fell way behind in planning the real thing, then decided to recoup by filming the first draft in 24 hours.  Seriously, what's the point of having to wait the whole picture for the villain to come out and face him.  You'd still get the same results if he'd popped right out after the credits and at least acted like he was tearing up the country.  Plus, Chevy probably would have fit the lead better than Allen, since he has, as I've noted on this thread before, a genuine cause for grudgery that would have helped the portrayal better.  It would at least have been an improvement over a role that does nothing and becomes the punching bag from everyone else.

I wish Chevy Chase hadn't been in the movie. Not that I don't like him. But I hate when characters are the target of all the bad things (like ALAN from TWO AND A HALF MEN and TOM ANDERSON from BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD) and we're expected to laugh at such cruelty. 

The directing was so bad. If they couldn't affort to show Spencer Breslin's stomach, use the money you spent on other unnecesary stuff. 

I really thought things were gonna get better with the final fight. Unfortunately, it only lasted like 2 minutes -- and then the bad guy was forgiven for everything!

I wish they hadn't made this movie, period. Chevy Chase hasn't been funny since the 80s. Superhero parodies usually suck, and this one has to be on top of the pile of those sh*tty movies. 

Oh, and Spencer Breslin can't act his way out of a wet paper bag!

Really? Because it doesn't work with any other genre, not even by Seltzerberg standards.

Parody, satire, it sucked either way. Now, if you want a good superhero parody, watch "Sky High". It's one of the few times Disney did something right, without marketing the hell out of it and selling it out every way possible.
