New York Post:
Cox falls down three times, Allen belches and Chase gets covered with buckets of green snot. Scenes keep ending on non-jokes like this exchange: 'No way!' 'Way!'
A cheap, ugly, forgettable footnote to the seemingly endless superhero boom.
It has plenty of energy and visual effects but not a single original idea in its spandex-clad head.
In a feat of dullness quite powerful in its own way, this lifeless family comedy sucks the joy from every joke it touches; X-Men's Rogue would be envious.
Detroit Free Press:
If Tim Allen really was a superhero, his name would be Blandman. His power: turn even the most innocuous kiddie movie into something nearly unwatchable.
The director of Zoom is Peter Hewitt, who also directed Garfield. Nothing more to say about that.
The only noteworthy thing about the movie, in fact, is a sort of casual racial insensitivity.
New York Daily News:
Frankly, this would have been a perfect candidate for the straight-to-DVD shelf. But the young stars are appealing, and at this point in his career, Allen could carry a family film with one hand tied behind his back.
New York Times:
Too infantile for tweens and too stagnant for tots, Zoom bleeds boredom from every frame.
When it comes to action, comedy, and drama, three words apply: lamer, lamer, lamest.
Zoom is another one of those endearingly cheap, twice-annual Tim Allen movies that seem to be forever playing on airplanes. (Next up is Santa Clause 3.)
... this fizzled action flick lacks the wit, style and substance of so many better efforts ...
The under-achieving Zoom resembles nothing so much as as a subpar episode of a failed Disney Channel teleseries.
