Sky High

Rated PG 102 minutes 2005

The son of Earth's two greatest heroes (Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston), Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) is too embarrassed to admit to either parent that he seems to have no powers at all. Unable to manifest any mutant abilities on his first day at the eponymous high school for heroics, he is labeled as a sidekick, or, to use the politically correct term uttered by the more insecure in the group, "hero support." But soon enough, Will actually manifests superstrength, catapulting him into the in-crowd and causing him to neglect his real friends, whose powers are somewhat less spectacular. Don't expect Marvel-style metaphors for adolescent angst and persecution; our heroes may be somewhat vulnerable to peer pressure and gorgeous babes, but ultimately they're quite well empowered for a bunch of teens. Stan Lee might not approve, but the script, by newcomer Paul Hernandez and Kim Possible creators Mark McCorkle & Bob Schooley, gets off some good lines. The supporting cast is strong, featuring Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce Campbell, Lynda Carter, and Cloris Leachman.
