Editorial Reviews

When high-school science nerd Barney Springboro develops the power to move objects with his mind, he immediately uses it to burst the buttons on a busty cheerleader's fuzzy pink sweater. Welcome to Zapped!, a classic example of teen sex comedies from the 1980s (such as Porky's, Private Resort, Revenge of the Nerds), combining awkward adolescent romance with a breast obsession that is somehow both leering and innocent. There's not much plot to speak of: Barney (one-time teen heartthrob Scott Baio) uses his powers to win a baseball game, get back at his oppressive parents (who try to have him exorcised), and help his best pal Peyton (Willie Aames, Eight is Enough) get laid with the aforementioned busty cheerleader (buxom blonde Heather Thomas, The Fall Guy). Along the way there are peculiar fantasy sequences about Star Trek and Einstein, as well as a strangely drawn-out subplot about the school principal (Robert Mandan, Soap) placing a personal ad. Zapped! is sprinkled with nudity and four-letter words, but what's even more striking is how the budding relationship between Barney and would-be reporter Bernadette (Felice Schachter, The Facts of Life) feels genuine and sincere--far moreso than the plastic, prefabricated romance of contemporary teen comedy. In fact, up until the berserk prom sequence when Barney goes into a weird, horndog-Carrie frenzy of telekinetic clothing removal, Zapped! is surprisingly sweet and will provide a dose of warm nostalgia for guys who grew up watching these movies. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars Completely selfish review! January 30, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Really Like This Movie! September 6, 2004
A Kid's Review
Format:VHS Tape
I don't know why critics are so hard on this movie, sure Zapped may not be a movie that you could picture getting an Oscar for best picture but I still think it is a good movie and I have a lot of fun watching it and I think Scott Baio, Willie Aames, Felice Schatcher and Heather Thomas all are good, there is nudity in this movie but only briefly and anyone who says that there is no nudity probably saw it edited on TV, I have the movie unedited on video and there is indeed brief nudity especially near the end of the movie during the dance, I am rating this cute, funny movie a 5 and I wish it would get onto a wide-screen DVD. Don't listen to the arty farty critics, they are a bunch of snobs who wouldn't know a fun enjoyable movie it it came up and bit them on their butts!

A Kid's Review
Format:VHS Tape
I first watched the movie Zapped on cable, I think it was on one of those movie channels like HBO or Cinemax and I liked this movie and thought Scott Baio and Willie Aames were very good in it and I think this movie should be put on DVD! I have the movie on video but since videos wear out easily it would be so much better to have this movie on DVD! I just can't believe that the stupid sequel is on DVD but not the original which is amuch better movie! 3 1/2 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars See that clothing fly off!! May 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Zapped!, well what can I say. You have to take this movie very lightly and just sit back and enjoy. Sure it's corny, but sometimes, no, most times, you just need to put your brain on hold and just wallow in cheesiness. Scott Baio is pretty impressive as the high school nerd who gains psychic powers. Every boys dreams are fulfilled as he lets loose his powers on school bullies and strips girls at his school, which is handy if the prom queen happens to be Heather Thomas. Speaking of which, yes he strips,splits, and tears at her clothing enough to sustain any guy's interest and during the prom, you just know that her pretty dress is going to end up in pieces. Buy it now and keep the magic alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zapped! Never a dull moment. May 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
OK so it's a cheesy Disney-esque spoof but it's also a lot of fun. Psychic Baio enjoys himself by exacting revenge on school bullies and cheats at baseball. Heather Thomas shines as the snobby,nasty prom queen. Worth seeing for the glorious moment when Baio wipes that smug grin off her face and strips her in front of the entire school. The look on her face as it dawns on her she's staring at the entire school dressed in just her stockings and garters is priceless! Go see it NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Bad, It's Great!!! February 15, 2008
Format:DVD
I cannot tell you how awful I think this film is, yet with every fiber of my guilty being, I cannot get enough of it! Awful script, mediocre acting and over the top attempts at anything for a laugh, what should have been a complete and utter trainwreck actually proves to be one of the guiltiest pleasures in the world. I LOVE IT!

When forced by friends in late night gab fests what movie they'll never admit to anyone they love, ZAPPED! almost always tops the list (with Spielberg's "1941" a close second) - I'm talking about myself and close friends my age.

It's hard to predict whether this movie will have lasting impact on future generations - I mean, the clothes, feathered hairstyles and make-up of the early 80's are dreadful (i.e. Aames's Jordache jeans), but for anyone in the mood for a good d*** and fart joke (not to mention a belching dog), I highly recommend.

I grew up in the early days of cable tv and ZAPPED! aired a lot back then, almost as often as THE BEASTMASTER. Since then, it's been like an enigma - like a bad relationship you know will never work, yet you can't walk away from and try to hide from everyone at all costs. That's ZAPPED! for me - I love it, but after 25 years, I feel only now I can tell the world.

Get the DVD - you just may like it as much as I do. But don't tell anyone! ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally released on DVD- Its about time. December 17, 2007
Format:DVD
Barney (Scott Baio)is a science geek who after an explosion in his science lab, develops Telekinsis (the ability to move things with his mind). After his best friend (Willie Aames) discovers his secret, all
kinds of chaos breaks loose. Wild and wacky fun. Great story and great cast. Finally On Dvd. Must see if you are looking to rediscover the 80's and watch a light hearted movie that is really funny and features a great soundtrack.
