Troma was a day late and a dollar short in trying to capitalize on the video-game craze that was almost passe by the time this went into release. Roth is a meek young man who quits his going-nowhere job at a women's clothing store and heads for Hollywood in search of fame, fortune, and his

father, who has been missing for 24 years. On the road he meets up with a slovenly drifter, Frank, who is obsessed with video games and spends his life in pursuit of good times. Once in Los Angeles, Frank takes up with De Waldron while he makes his living as a video-game hustler, and Roth

continues to search for his missing father. Not much action and not very funny, HOLLYWOOD ZAP! is tedious going. Writer-director Cohen seems as obsessed with video arcades as the character played by Frank, but viewers who don't share his enthusiasm are in for a long 93 minutes.
