‘Troop Zero’ is a 2020 Amazon exclusive family comedy. It takes place in rural Georgia in 1977, following the story of misfit little girl who dreams of space. She finds out a golden record is being put together of voice recordings that will be transmitted into space. The winning Birdie Scouts troop of the jamboree will be recorded on the golden record. She must now put together a rag tag group of other misfits in order to be able to compete at the jamboree.
‘Troop Zero’ stars Viola Davis (Widows, The Help), McKenna Grace (Gifted), Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show), Mike Epps ( Next Friday, Friday after Next), and Allison Janney (I, Tonya).
With the rag tag team bonding, and realizing their differences make them special, makes ‘Troop Zero’ a feel good movie for the whole family. It reminds me of other movies such as ‘Little Giants’, or ‘The Little Rascals’. Who doesn’t love a good underdog story with a loveable cast of misfits? I give it a 6.5/10.
