| Great for all ages!
I saw the advance screening of this movie last night and I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised! I went into this movie expecting a cheesy kiddy movie and ended up spending the next hour and a half being seriously entertained. The story is about a group of freshmen in their first few months at a super hero high school named "Sky High." There are all the familiar struggles of high school, such as fitting in, finding a date, and choosing between the friends you have known and loved your whole life and the new popular crowd. These high school newbies have the additional dilemma of learning to use their powers and live up to the reputations that their parents have established as super heroes. The movie is sweet without sending the viewers into a diabetic coma, and has a great message. The theater I was in was also full of little ones, who I never heard a peep out of! The movie is a great treat for the entire family and will make a great break from the heat or a rainy day activity!

Did You Know?


The phone number for Stronghold Realty is 800-656-1482, which is a number at ABC, which is owned by Disney. The voicemail message was: "Thank you for calling ABC, the number you have reached is a fictional non-working number used for motion picture, and television production." The number can be seen near the end of the movie when Mr. and Mrs. Timmerman are admiring their new house, which is about to be crushed by Sky High, the camera pans by the Stronghold Realty sign. However, the number no longer gives that message. It now says: "In order to better direct your call, please state the company and the ten digit phone number you are attempting to reach." Unfortunately, as of 2018, the number is no longer in use.


Will Stronghold: Oh! Uh - I'm...
Gwen: Will Stronghold!
Will Stronghold: Aha, Mind Reader!
Gwen: No, name tag.


During the "Save the Citizen" scene, when Lash is blown into the air, you can see the line behind him that lifts him. (DVD Version)

Crazy Credits

The end credits are decorated with still-frame comic-book illustrations. One of the still frames has a single animated element - a purple monster's eye, which moves and blinks. (It appears just before the music credits.)

Alternate Versions

On Cartoon Network, TBS, and TNT, sixteen scenes, and the song, "Through Being Cool" by They Might Be Giants are cut to make more time for commercial advertising
