Don't look at the 6.0 ranking this movie gets in IMDb. Just because a hundred of fans scored a 10 for this one, doesn't make it a good movie. After leaving Shake it Up, I thought that Zendaya would give a really good turn to her career, especially after watching her getting' silver in DWTS. Unfortunately, making this absurd collection of shots that some people calls movie was a terrible decision. "Zapped" has some ingredients that only the very bad comedies have: nasty and filthy boys, fart jokes, overacted queen bee, and I stop counting. I don't know what Zendaya was thinking, but maybe she was kinda cheated before signing the contract. She is talented, she's got everything, she's young and not desperate at all to make things like this. It was enough with three years of Shake it Up. I hope I'll never watch Zendaya in a Disney production for TV. Never again.

Not good for Zendaya's careerReviewed byivette_hartogVote: 7/10
I know this is a movie but it is a bit too unrealistic in my opinion. The whole scenario just doesn't seem plausible. First of all Zendaya's character would never wind up in this situation as her mother would never be attracted to a man like that and if she was their relationship would fall apart after living with children like his. Everybody is so obnoxious and rude.
The overall concept is interesting and once you get over the stupidity of it you can kind of enjoy it but it is super full of clichés and is pretty corny. Actually it's a little bit of an epic fail with a couple of fun and entertaining moments. I'm not sure but it could be the actors fault. As their characters develop towards the end they do get better though. It's just not a very successful movie.
Where do I begin? I have no idea where to start with this. Perhaps, I should look at the biggest problem with this movie.
It's sexist. Very sexist. It makes boys look really nerdy or really gross or another over-the-top cliché and makes the girls look perfect or at least better than the boys.
The acting is bad, especially Zendaya. Zendaya is so untalented. She's not a good singer or actor, so why is she known for those things? The actors don't even seem like they're trying to put any effort in.
The premise is dumb. She downloads an app that is supposed to help control dogs, but she does something and the phone then goes through a weird series of events that make the phone.... control boys? That's... random. It's not like the process it went through had anything to do with boys. It doesn't make a lot of sense.
Basically, it's a sexist film with a dumb premise and terrible actors. I don't understand how anyone would think that was a good idea.
