Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.  

There have been some pretty silly TV movies on the Disney channel in the past. But they may be setting a ridonkulous new benchmark with Zapped, in which a teenage girl discovers that mind-control can be fun!

Sadly (or maybe luckily), Zapped is not a remake of the Scott Baio movie about a nerdy dude who becomes a Tomorrow Pervert. Rather, it's about a teen girl whose cellphone gets a weird "app" that lets her control boys. This movie has everything: gender politics, cellphones, fear of technology, and our secret wishfulfillment about getting to bend others to our will. (Of course, you know she will learn a Very Important Lesson by the end of it, and realize that she really wants a dude who can stand up to her, or something.)

Here's the official synopsis, via Disney Dreaming:

The storyline follows 16 year-old Zoey Stevens, a skilled dancer and straight-A student who is having a hard time adjusting to a new high school, a new and klutzy dance squad, a new step-dad, three new rowdy step-brothers and an unruly dog. But things change when a dog training app on her smart phone begins to somehow control all the boys around her.

Cannot. Wait.
