Tim Allen doesn’t exactly make the most fabulous of films – his range seems to be limited to a grunt; dog-suit/Santa suit, or physically-damaging self infliction – but his latest, “Zoom”, makes the rest well, look like films you might actually pay to see on video (if even just on discount day).

Tim Allen doesn’t exactly make the most fabulous of films – his range seems to be limited to a grunt; dog-suit/Santa suit, or physically-damaging self infliction – but his latest, “Zoom”, makes the rest well, look like films you might actually pay to see on video (if even just on discount day).

Based on a popular (can’t be too popular, I’ve never heard of it) kiddies book, the lacklustre comedy/adventure/90-minute commercial for the Sony music catalogue (there seemed to be a top ten hit played every 5 minutes in the movie) is essentially “Sky High” all over again – only less entertaining. Allen plays the veteran superhero recruited to assemble a bunch of kids with ‘special powers’ – the one that can turn invisible; the one that can make himself big et al – so that they can take down a new enemy.

This is a shambles. There’s no script (apparently Adam Rifkin did the first draft, but it now resembles nothing he wrote); the performances are as weak as well, a Chevy Chase movie (funnily enough, Chevy appears here too!); and the special effects look worse than the dailies on “Superman IV : The Quest for Peace”.

Thank god “Wild Hogs” came along when it did eh Tim? SAG might’ve asked for your membership card back.
