Storyline Heading
When you're the son of the world's most legendary superheroes, there is only one school for you, SKY HIGH, an elite high school that is entrusted with the responsibility of molding today's power-gifted students into tomorrow's super-heroes. The problem is that Will Stronghold is starting with no superpowers of his own, and worst of all, instead of joining the ranks of the "Hero" class, he find himself relegated to being a "Sidekick".

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Action Adventure - While the film is pitched toward a kid/family audience, this teen- centered superhero film will appeal to a broad crowd from kids to adults. It's a lot smarter and witty than it appears, and adult viewers with a familiarity with superheroes will probably have a greater appreciation than kids.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good Imagine my surprise when I discovered that not only is Sky High too good to be considered a mere "throw away," but, from a pure entertainment perspective, it is arguably the most enjoyable motion picture of the season. Sky High is funny, smart, energetic, subversive, and has a few substantive things to say.

USA Today Full Review
Good Compared with Blackboard Jungle and Rebel without a Cause from 50 years ago, we're seeing the high school movie in serious decline. But viewed as a family movie in the year of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, Racing Stripes, The Pacifier and a rusted-out Herbie movie, the payoff is almost as cute as Preston in a cape.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 164 moviegoer opinions. "Sky High" opinions are SKY HIGH! For a silly little comedy adventure these are EXCEPTIONAL OPINIONS. Nearly three-quarters rated it "Fantastic" or "Excellent," which is very unusual for this type of movie. Even more important, again for this type of movie, is that there are no real low opinions.

"Sky High" is very entertaining and lots of fun for the whole family. DON'T MISS "SKY HIGH."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It all begins at a secret school in the clouds like none on earth: Sky High, the first and only high school for kids with super-human powers going through crime-fighting puberty. At Sky High, the student body throw flames with their footballs, study Villainy with their Chemistry and are divided into "Heroes” and "Sidekicks” instead of jocks and geeks. It's an out-of-this-world yet completely recognizable place where cool gadgetry, rampant bravery and awe inspiring magical skills mix it up with parental battles, peer pressure and dating trouble—with explosively fun results.

This year's class features some of the best, brightest and most powerfully gifted superteens ever assembled. And then there's Will Stronghold (MICHAEL ANGARANO).

When you're the son of the world's most legendary super heroes, The Commander (KURT RUSSELL) and Jetstream (KELLY PRESTON), people expect you to live up to the family name. The problem is that Will is starting with no superpowers of his own and, worst of all, instead of joining the ranks of the "Hero” class, he finds himself relegated to being a "Sidekick.” Now he must somehow survive his freshman year while dealing with an overbearing gym coach (BRUCE CAMPBELL), a bully with super speed and a dangerous rebel with a grudge (and the ability to shoot fire from his hands)…not to mention the usual angst, parental expectations and girl problems that accompany teenage life. But when an evil villain threatens his family, friends and the very sanctity of Sky High, Will must use his newfound superpowers to save the day and prove himself a "Hero” worthy of the family tradition.
