What happens when a linguist, translating an ancient manuscript while holding a relic coin says the word, "Zotz!"? It's pretty much the power of a deity put into the hands of a simple man. This professor has no more the desire to rule the world than to step outside of his comfort bubble but there are strange forces working against him and, as a man of science, he must figure out what the heck is going on.
If this sounds zany... it is. It's the perfect four letter z word to describe this movie whose title is a four letter z word. The casting is strong and built for humor with some 60's Bettys to keep the eyes happy. This one won't be for everyone. It's cheesy but funny. Probably for people who really dig Herbie the Love Bug or the Andy Griffith Show. Simple physical humor with a red scare subplot and political criticism about the big ol' bureaucracy in Washington DC.
Zotz! is available now, and I strongly recommend you check this one out. Kid friendly.
Note that while researching this piece I found Zotz candy. I think I may have even tried them. Hard candy with fizzies. Not my cup of tea, but maybe it would make a fun gimmick to provide your kids with the candies before or during viewing or maybe even give them a chocolate, gold coin.
