Product Description

Scott Baio, Willie Aames. When a hormone-ravaged teenage nerd acquires special telekinetic powers, just imagine all the fun he can have. 1982/color/98 min/R.

Amazon.com

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

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!

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.

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!

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!

Zapped, I originally watched when I was 11! I remember it so well. We got it ex rental on Beta Max! It's cheesy, low budget but a whole lot of fun. The underdog nerd scientist who, after an accident in the lab has the power to move things with his eyes! Telekinesis! Every underdogs dream! I used to long for that power. With a mother & father that supresses him Barney finds himself with his new look on life. He takes the losing baseball team to the top and gets himself off the subs bench and astounds everyone with his fierce, powerful batting. All with a little help of course. The bullies get the comeuppance and humiliation they deserve. Throughout the whole story Barney is dealt with lessons in what's right and wrong. He even falls in love with student council president Bernadette! Only three people know about Barneys gift, himself, Bernadette and his best friend, rich kid, sex maniac Peyton. Peyton has ideas that gambling is the road Barney should go down with his power after a very successful winning streak on the roulette table. Controlling the ball Barney and Peyton send the rich popular jocks in a spin as they win every game and lots of money. Barneys conscience is tugged throughout the whole film by Bernadette who fears he's selling out in doing what Peyton makes him. Love concours all in a heart warming finale. The senior prom is a prom to remember a bit like Carrie. But Barney does not kill everyone he wants to teach a lesson he uses his powers to strip the whole year of their clothes and causes chaos! All leading to the dramatic ending. All this set against the beautiful soundtrack of David Pomeranz power ballads "Got to Believe in Magic" and "King and Queen of Hearts". Zapped is a cross between Grease and Carrie! A real light hearted cheesy comedy you can't help but smile at! So pleased it finally made it to 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.
