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

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

Unfortunately, there's too much deadweight in this listless, unfunny dreck - and it starts with the lead.

July 26, 2005
Takes the tried-and-true route of bullies, PG-rated house parties, nerd-dunking, "That's my boy" winking, and vapid teen romance.

Takes camp to new levels of self-aware mediocrity.

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.

It's Harry Potter meets The Incredibles minus the memorable characters, hearty laughs, great writing and all around movie goodness.

July 27, 2005
A derivative and unappealing comedy about superheroes and their sidekicks in training.

Mike Mitchell directs scenes in big, bright comic-strip panels: colorful and exaggerated, with everything spelled out in veritable word balloons.

If you thought Hogwarts was the only secret school for extraordinary kids, welcome to the amusing, yet cheesy Sky High.

Merely child's play.

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

Bright colors contrast the usual superhero dark mode. That's a plus. But a script-by-committee turns Sky High into a John Hughes high school clone.

July 28, 2005
Although it aims for Spy Kids and The Incredibles territory, this family entertainment is strictly for those too young to attend the titular institution.
July 29, 2005
Dissatisfying to an adult audience accustomed to more sophisticated parody....will resonate with young viewers on their way to high school.

Less discriminating, younger viewers may find Sky High amusing, but actual high school students are way beyond this kid stuff.
July 29, 2005
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.
