Reviews provided by RottenTomatoes

Kyle Smith, 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!' Read more

Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle: Your ability to tolerate this movie depends on how much music from the band Smashmouth you can stand. Read more

Nathan Rabin, AV Club: A cheap, ugly, forgettable footnote to the seemingly endless superhero boom. Read more

Ty Burr, Boston Globe: Shabbily filmed and resolutely unfunny. Read more

Christy Lemire, Associated Press: It has plenty of energy and visual effects but not a single original idea in its spandex-clad head. Read more

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly: 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. Read more

John Monaghan, 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. Read more

Stephen Williams, Newsday: The director of Zoom is Peter Hewitt, who also directed Garfield. Nothing more to say about that. Read more

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger: The only noteworthy thing about the movie, in fact, is a sort of casual racial insensitivity. Read more

Elizabeth Weitzman, 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. Read more

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times: Too infantile for tweens and too stagnant for tots, Zoom bleeds boredom from every frame. Read more

James Berardinelli, ReelViews: When it comes to action, comedy, and drama, three words apply: lamer, lamer, lamest. Read more

Jason Anderson, Globe and Mail: Zoom is a movie that you've probably seen several times already. Read more

Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star: 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.) Read more

Stephen Garrett, Time Out: ... this fizzled action flick lacks the wit, style and substance of so many better efforts ... Read more

Joe Leydon, Variety: The under-achieving Zoom resembles nothing so much as as a subpar episode of a failed Disney Channel teleseries. Read more
