Saving the world... one homework assignment at a time.

Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) is full of teen angst about friends, grades, and girls... in other words, Will is just another suburban teen about to start high school. If that isn't enough to deal with, Will has the added pressure of being the third generation of the Stronghold family to attend the esteemed and celebrated Sky High. This elite school is entrusted with the responsibility of moulding today's power-gifted students into tomorrow's superheroes. The only problem... Will is starting his freshman year without any super powers of his own.

Labelled a sidekick, Will is bullied by the jock with the power to stretch, humiliated by a kid with super speed, stalked by the outcast who shoots fire from his hands, and teased the cheerleader who can replicate herself into an entire cheer squad. Worst of all, he must hide all of his troubles or face the disappointment of his parents, the crime-fighting duo - Captain Stronghold (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston) - the most revered and beloved superheroes in the business today.

Theatrical report

Sky High is your standard teen superhero comes to the rescue of adult superheroes in their hour of need will coming to grips with life as an adolescent kind of movie. It's entertaining but nowhere near as funny as The Incredibles. Fine for the whole family.
