I loved this movie! It's about time that movies start having good messages for children. This one did! I love Tim Allen, and Courtney Cox is wonderful too. If you don't like Tim Allen, then don't even bother, you won't like the film, like I won't go see any sort of Will Ferrell film...it's the same principle. If superhero movies aren't your bag, then don't bother either. But I love both and loved the movie. I went and saw this at a matinée and everyone there seemed to be enjoying themselves. True, you won't grow any brain cells, but since when did going to a simple movie have to be such a cerebral experience? Just sit back and enjoy yourself!

wonderful movie!Reviewed bykwlabearsrchVote: 10/10
Remember how in the 70's you could tell the production value of a filmby how often you saw the boom mike fall into view of the actors- wellthanks to boom operator Darryl Purdy and the laziness of Peter "Iapparently never watch the dailies" Hewitt, you can see the boom mikefall into view 3 separate times. That said allow me to point out thatthe cute little girl who acts as badly as her speech impediment can'tsave the film in the same way that the Brady Bunch would not have beenpopular with a the show devoted to Cindy Brady.
There was so much wasted possibility showing us the back ground ofthese characters the over use of montage and collage editing would nothave been needed.
Also the film has three apparent villains in the film except none ofthem are bad and we never know why two of them are necessarilyconsidered bad- but that's o.k. because the story was written bysomeone with ADD or perhaps short term memory loss as significant asthe character in "Memento".The story has no continuity- Tim Allen hatesthe kids he plays with the kids he feels sorry for the kids no wait hedoesn't understand why he's there to train the kids_ FOR THE LOVE OFGOD MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!! Nothing in this movie fit together- and in theend the super evil villain (whom we have waited 90 minutes to see) getsa scolding in the last 6 minutes of the movie and then it's over.
Didn't Peter Hewitt read the script before filming oh no wait this isthe same guy that gave us "Bogus Journey"- you remember- the sequelthat ended the Bill and Ted franchise. Not to mention the GarfieldMovie.. a comic strip so revered for 30 years they made it into aSaturday morning cartoon but the movie that couldn't keep the audiencesattention for 90 minutes (success based solely on a lack of otherchildren films during its release and parents who grew up with Garfieldthe previous generation)...WHY DOES PETER HEWITT GET WORK, why??Afterall,it is the directors responsibility for many things includinghaving a working script and a vision before starting a project ( theexceptions being Andy Warhol who's audience base was too stoned tonotice and Francis Ford Coppola with "Apocalypse Now" who had severalmillion dollars to keep his dream afloat.
Peter Hewitt should be ashamed of himself for this crap.
I rented this movie for my cousin, it was his pick and we watched it as soon as we got home, he loved it! I seriously was expecting this big travesty of a film with the way the users are talking about it on IMDb, but I have to honestly say that it wasn't THAT bad, come on, it's a kid's movie, what did you expect? Citizen Kane? For the kids it had a fun plot and cool visuals, yeah, the story was a little lame, but as adults we should know that this movie was not meant for us, so I am going to judge it on being a children's movie.
These kids all have super powers, but don't know how to use them effectively, so the program of Zoom is going to help them become super heroes with a man who was a former celebrity type of hero who is now a has-been. They enjoy being kids with each other and learn how to use their powers in the right ways and must destroy Conor, another former super hero who went bad. Together they all must learn to a team and also a family.
Like I said, for a kid's movie, it's cute and it really wasn't a BAD movie, I've seen worse, believe me! So don't use most of these comments as your judgment factor, see how the kids react and really judge for yourself, it's a fun little flick that I wouldn't watch again, but I think it will be a fun small classic somewhere down the road for the children.
