Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
An entertaining comic book story that's a mix of a live action "The Incredibles" and Disney's Kim Possible series.

Sky High
At his first day at Sky High, Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano), the son of two of the greatest superheroes ever, Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston), shocks everyone by exhibiting absolutely no superpowers. To make matters worse, Will inherits an archenemy and family foe in Warren Peace (Stevens Strait), who can shoot fire from his hands. But, exhibiting no special powers, Will, along with his best friend and girl next door, Layla (Danielle Panabaker), whose beauty Will fails to notice, get put in with the "sidekicks." But Will's status is quickly upgraded to "Hero" when he realizes he possesses superhuman strength.

Using his newfound status, Will deserts his geeky pals and falls for Gwen (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who is able to control technology with her mind). But when Commander and Jetstream's biggest enemy, the villainous Royal Pain, comes back to threaten his family, Will and his sidekick friends reunite to save them, their friends, and the destiny of Sky High. The adult school staff includes Principal Powers, played by Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman herself); Bruce Campbell's Coach Boomer: Kevin Heffernan's bus driver, whose gung-ho spirit belies his lack of powers; and Cloris Leachman in an amusing cameo as a school nurse with X-ray vision.

You'll be entertained by the way director Mike Mitchell has mixed campus melodrama, cafeteria fights, detention, school dances and failed romance, with the world of superheroes, making each scene more ingenious than the one before, and the whole film is a cleverly conceived family friendly delight
