Sky High back to product details

Like a feature length Nickelodeon show

I went to see this one in the theaters with a friend and his children. Otherwise, I don't think it would have interested me much. But I have to say it's not a half bad movie. It's geared towards the tween set, those who are about to start high school. But it was entertaining enough to amuse me. (I've been out of high school for a while now.)
The story centers around a young man about to enter Hero High. His parents are two of the most famous heros in the world, and they expect big things from him. The only problem is he hasn't developed any powers yet.
On his first day he meets the school bullies, a possible love interest, the son of one of the villians his father put in jail, and several friends. He's also relegated to the unenvied position of sidekick by the school's physical trainer, played with scene-stealing ham by none other than Bruce Campbell.
The plot is a bit predictable, but overall, this is a new take on trying to survive high school. Literally. The acting isn't bad, and the effects are pretty decent. I'd recommend this one for a family movie night. It's excellent for the kiddies, and there's enough there to keep the parents happy.
