Storyline

Zenon Car is a trouble-prone 13-year-old girl who, in the year 2049 AD, lives on a space station with the rest of her family. When she runs afoul of Parker Windom, the owner of the station, Zenon is determined to be "incorrigible", and as punishment is exiled to the worst place imaginable: The planet earth. After several painful weeks of adjustment to her new surroundings, Zenon enlists the aid of her earthbound pals to return to her "real" home with evidence that the "respectable" Mr. Windom is up to no good.

Zenon is all out fun!
4 April 2004 | by carebearsweety16See all my reviews

I saw Zenon: Girl of 21st century about 4 years ago and thought is was fun, exciting and sweet. I'm 16 now and I still think the movie is just all out fun. So the lines aren't that great but honestly, this movie is suppose to take place in the future and who knows how we'll speak then anyway. Kirsten Storms is a very good actress and like most have you have said "she shows real promise". I didn't think the sequel or pardon me "zequel" was as good as the first. But I am looking forward to the 3rd! (Zenon: Zee Three!! :-) Raven-Synmone and Kirsten Storms both made a big leap into their acting with this very movie. Raven-Synmone now has her won show "That's so Raven" and has a runner up of movie titles coming her way. Kirsten Storms has been on the big soap opera "Days of our lives" and other smaller features. They (both girls) are exceptional actresses and are quickly making their names famous! Zenon is a great movie, it may be for kids but you won't be bored! It's all out fun! Major!
