Sky High

Disney’s latest kid film (or maybe it’s a “tween” film) is basically Pretty in Pink set in a high school for superheroes. Young Will Stronghold’s parents are the world’s greatest superheroes, The Commander and Jetstream. Yet poor Will’s only superpower is his inability to see that popularity is not as important as friendship. Danielle Panabaker plays the Duckie role as Will’s best friend, Layla. While she moons over Will, he decides to hook up with The Most Popular Girl in the School, who, in good John Hughes fashion, is not only not nice, but even super-mean. Comic relief is provided by Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald of Kids in the Hall fame, although there’s not quite enough of it to fully relieve this movie. Nonetheless, it’s passably entertaining, and nerdy moms and dads who bring their hyper-active-powered kids to see this won’t be terribly bored, and they may even learn an important lesson about responsibility and how to steal script ideas from ’80s teen movies.
