i have not seen an unedited version, but i have to say, this movie ROKS!!!!!!!!!

after i saw the Scott Baio celebrity profile, i fell in love. i looked up Scotty's movie history, and saw this one.

coincidentally it was on Comedy Central about 2 weeks later. even though they always play it at 7 o'clock in the morning. and it is rated TV PG. which means everything good was cut out, ZAPPED is one of my favorites.

i like the line where Barney (Baio) goes: "Are you talkin' to me? are you talkin' to me? well i dont see anyone else here, so you must be talkin' to me" and then Peyton (Aames) says: "then where am i Barn?" i mean sure it is campy, but it got me laughing.

Barney Springboro is really hott and even if Bernadette does fall in love with him, i still watch it every time. i think that ZAPPED is not highly appreciated, because what good teen movies are?? this movie was before the BRAT PACK.

i say that if you hate it, fine. if you have never seen it, watch it! you will be surprised!

Fmovies: It really brings me back to when I was growing up. The music, the acting it was all a lot of fun! Scott Baio was and still is a great actor. Appearing in Happy Days, Zapped and many more show, not to mention Charles in charge. I remember growing up, it was a part of my day. I guess I look apon those days with a fondness a more easy time. More about fun and less about serious issues. Everything today is Blood Gore and Violence, I liked the simpler films, the feel good movies once in a while. Zapped is exactly one of those films. Felice Schachter was another of those wholesome actresses that you loved to watch. Cute, Smart and funny. That real "girl next door" vibe. Willie Aames great to watch also, kinda like your buddy who knew how to get things done. I may not be a writer, but I know what I like. This is a very UNDERRATED film and deserves A lot more credit! Zapped RULES!

If you're an 80's teen movie fan, this parody of Carrie is definitely worth a look. So what if Scott Baio can't act? It's a one gag picture, but it has its moments.

Zapped! fmovies. Zapped secured the services of three current teen stars to guarantee a box office for this comedic salute to Carrie. The three are Scott Baio from Happy Days, Willie Aames from Eight Is Enough, and Felice Schachter from The Facts Of Life. Would that things had only gone this well for Carrie on her prom night.

Nerdy kid Scott Baio, a misunderstood science genius, gets some kind of chemicals mixed due to baseball coach Scatman Crothers spilling something and a noxious gas overtakes him in the laboratory in school. When he wakes up he finds himself with the power of telekinesis. After that it's one ridiculous situation after another.

One thing about this film, except for the three leads nearly everyone else in the movie is a blithering idiot. Other kids, teachers, Baio's parents, Scatman Crothers is an exception. Best scene in the film is on prom night Baio's parents get a couple of priests to perform an exorcism on him.

As for the prom, the scene is strictly a takeoff on Brian DePalma's Carrie with the damage played for laughs instead of violence. Typical brat pack comedy by three who were trying to break into the pack. Some funny scenes, but mostly kind of dopey.

The nerd Barney Springboro (Scott Baio) researches in the high-school laboratory means to increase the orchids of the principal and the behaviors of drunken mice under water. When the baseball coach accidentally drops one substance in another, Barney accidentally develops telekinesis power. His best friend Peyton Nichols (Willie Aames) and his school mate Bernadette (Felice Schachter) discover his secret. Peyton uses Barney´s ability to bet closer to the hot Jane Mitchell (Heather Thomas), who dates the college student Robert Wolcott (Greg Bradford). Bernadette tries to find application for Barney´s power and they fall in love with each other. Meanwhile Barney gets into trouble when Peyton decides to use his friend´s ability to make easy money.

"Zapped!" is a silly comedy that entertains. There are a couple of funny scenes and many hot girls, highlighting the sexy Heather Thomas. The viewer can see this film in a rainy day with few alternatives of entertainment. My vote is five.

I saw this movie when it first came out, and just recently purchased it. It is a movie from the 80's that is just about fun and you don't have to worry about confronting any issues or tackling any controversial subjects. It is just a fun romp into a fantasy that we all probably had when we were in high school, to have some sort of "special power" that made us different from everyone else. I say if you just want to forget today's world just pop in this movie and relax for 1hr 38min!
