Jack Shepard a.k.a. "Zoom" is an out-of-shape auto shop owner, far removed from the man who once protected the world's freedom. Reluctantly called back into action by the government, Jack is charged with turning a rag tag group of kids with special powers into a new generation of superheroes to save the world from certain destruction. Based on Jason Lethcoe's popular graphic novel "Zoom's Academy for the Super Gifted."

Dull superhero tale has comic book violence, potty humor.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Zoom: Academy for Superheroes is a 2006 movie in which Tim Allen plays a washed-up former superhero who is brought back by the government to train a ragtag group of kids and teens with superpowers. There's a ton of disrespectful behavior from both the adults and kids in this movie. Before warming up to the kids, Jack is downright mean, calling them names and treating them badly. There's also lots of crude behavior involving farting, burping, and a huge snot-bubble that bursts and covers everyone with green goo. In one scene, the kids trap a scientist in an environmental simulator and subject him to falling rocks, a cyclone, and a rainstorm, then laugh at him. Outtakes during the end credits show the cast singing "We like to poop in our pants." Also, the parents in this movie are conspicuously missing, and the superheroes form their own "family." There's some mild profanity and comic-book style violence (kicking, punching, throwing, shattering glass). There is also some blatant consumerism, M&M's featured prominently, a scene centered on the characters' spaceship going through Wendy's drive-through, and a robot named "Mr. Pibb."
