Zapped! (1982)

Post  BoG on Sat May 02, 2015 7:29 pm


High School comedy of mostly TV stars of that time with the added element of telekinesis - Scott Baio (Happy Days) is slightly miscast as the science whiz who accidentally gains telekinetic powers. Willie Ames (Eight is Enough) plays his buddy, wanting to use the powers for gain and lecherous purpose. Heather Thomas (The Fall Guy) plays the spoiled brat cheerleader, a rather empty role. I found it amusing when I first saw it in the theater, when I was much younger; nowadays, it's kind of slow and stupid. Some of it reminds me of a couple of old Jerry Lewis fantasies. Other cast include Robert Mandan as the fretful principal and Scatman Crothers as a coach. BoG's Score: 5 out of 10



Zap Trivia: there was a direct-to-video sequel in 1990, Zapped Again!
Star Trek actor alert: Merritt Butrick has a small role as the bigshot BMoC bully; he got the role of Kirk's son that same year in Star Trek II
