My 12-year-old self would have liked this movie a lot. The 25-year-old me likes it a bit more than he cares to admit.

Smartly written and sprightly played, Sky High satisfies with a clever commingling of spoofy superheroics, school-daze hijinks, and family friendly coming-of-age dramedy.

With a crisp and snappy visual style and its smartly paced story, Sky High pulls an incredible feat in an age of dumbed-down kids comedies; it's as down-to-earth as it is super.

Sky High may set a record for ripping off more movies in just over an hour and a half than any other film in history.

The formula fizzles when you skimp on the ingredients. Sky High never achieves liftoff.

An engaging and surprisingly sharp allegory about high-school hierarchies and adolescent growing pains.

A good-natured and witty mix of two modern film genres, Sky High is classic Disney filmmaking -- fanciful, family-friendly and, most importantly, fun.

Cheesy as it is, the family comedy Sky High doesn't even approximate the texture of Kraft plastic-wrapped singles.

This is, indeed, another teen flick, a spotty, stodgily directed, though occasionally clever one, with several cardboard performances.

The climax, which involves the homecoming dance and a death ray, is frenzied in its effort to entertain, yet ultimately underwhelming, much like the movie as a whole.

High schoolers (who are shown chugging only soda pop at a supposedly rowdy party) will rule this movie lame, though early grade-schoolers might bite.

A clever, cotton-candy- light self-parody to the superhero genre that's both effective and refreshing.

Director Mike Mitchell deftly blends two genres -- the high school romance and the special-effects-laden superhero comic book adaptation -- and manages to spoof yet salute both with a refreshing lack of pretension.

This zippy Disney adventure-comedy asks that age-old question, 'Is there life after high school?,' and answers it with a cheerful 'Not really.'

This movie about a high school for superheroes is so good-natured and self-deprecating that it's virtually impossible to dislike the thing.

Sky High is a diverting family comedy that at its best aims to be a live-action Incredibles and at its middling a live-action episode of Kim Possible.
