Movie Review: Sky High

Monday, December 12, 2005
What do you get when you have a supporting cast that includes Kurt "Disney" Russell, Kelly "John Travolta's Wife" Preston, Dave "Kids in the Hall" Foley, Lynda "Wonder Woman" Carter, and Kevin "Kids in the Hall" McDonald?

You get Sky High. While I'll admit, I think they thematically ripped off from Pixar's incredible The Incredibles, this movie manages to be extraordinarily entertaining on its own.

The plot is such: Boy (son of superhero and superheroine) goes to high school. He doesn't have super powers like everyone else. Boy meets nice girl. Boy gets super powrs. Popular people like boy but shun boy's longtime friends. Boy shows that true friendship and loyalty are more important than being popular by beating up bad guys.

The movie was just plain fun. There aren't any low or slow points, and, while parts of the movie are hideously overacted, it's by design. The movie just plain works.

Final word on "Sky High": A great rental! See it!

The kids i babysit brought this movie the other day, and I actually stopped what i was doing and watched it with them. It was pretty good, much better than I expected anyway.
Definately not the best movie ever, but as far as live action kids flicks go it was good.
