    well MGM controls them, but now that they are Sony, instead of a SRP of 9.99, it will now be 24.99, plus fullscreen![​IMG]

    God forbid they don't present Zapped in its OAR beauty. I would at least rent it no matter what, this film belongs in the "What were the 1980s all about Grandpa?" timecapsule.

    I thought you were talking about the mock-up reality show on Chappelle.

    "You've been Zapped!"

    ZAPPED! is one of the most hilarious pieces of trash I've ever seen. The onscreen pairing of Baio and Aames is absolute magic. I laughed so hard, I almost died. Really. This film is funnier than about 99% of what passes for film comedy these days. (Yeah, that's right, Jim Carrey and Will Ferrell, I'm talkin' ta YOU.) Look out for much gratuitous '80s-comedy surrealism, especially the bit with the dog and the Star Trek Bridge...unbelievable. So stoopid it's absolutely wonderful.

    Where's "Zapped!" and "Up the Creek"? Um...in my adolescent past where they belong?

    Just kidding....what kills me is that the crappy(er) 1990 sequel got a DVD release before the original Zapped.

    Time for my annual bump to keep these titles in people's minds. So hopefully we can some news soon.

    Was the person who started this thread a CHARLES IN CHARGE fan?

    ZAPPED starred Scott Baio and Willie Aames.

    UP THE CREEK starred Jennifer Runyon (aka the seriously hot blonde).

    All three starred in CHARLES IN CHARGE, season one (the only one with Runyon) is out on DVD on Feb 14th.

    Maybe they should have had a tie in, released both movies the same day.

    Jon, it was me. And until you brought it up...I had not even thought that they were all tied together with Charles In Charge. Was never a big fan of the show.

    While Heather Thomas was hot....I always like Felice Schachter who played Bernadette.

    Actually, I think Disney's THE BOATNIKS had it first:

    "Looks like a small torpedo."
    "If it is, it's the first Kosher torpedo I've ever seen."

    I've been watching Charles in Charge on UPN, and would definitely like to see Zapped on DVD. (Baio and Aames are great on Charles) I think I'm gonna rent it on VHS soon, as I've never seen it before...I'd buy the DVD if released. If MGM can release The Garbage Pail Kids Movie on DVD (#41 on the IMDb Bottom 100) they can surely release Zapped!
