Tim Allen’s film ZOOM is challenging ELEKTRA and CATWOMAN as the worst comic book movie in history, and those are some big spandex tights to fill.
Cinematical reveals that ZOOM has achieved the extremely rare feat of rating 0% Positive at Rotten Tomatoes.
And now … drum roll please … we are thrilled to announce the eighth arrival in the Rotten Tomatoes 0% Hall of Mega-Shame! Starring Tim Allen (of The Shaggy Dog (27%), Joe Somebody (14%), Jungle 2 Jungle (10%), Christmas with the Kranks (4%) shame), and directed by Peter Hewitt (of Garfield: The Movie (13%)) is Zoom, recipient of 39 reviews — all nasty. Congrats to all of those who worked extra hard on turning Jason Lethcoe’s comic book series into one of the very worst movies of a very bad movie year.
For instance, Ty Burr at the Boston Globe called it “Shabbily filmed and resolutely unfunny.” SHABBY! Jeannet Catsoulis at the NYT panned “Too infantile for tweens and too stagnant for tots, Zoom bleeds boredom from every frame.” STAGNANT! Truly we are raiding this page for future insults for all occasions.
