Classmate Gwen (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) quickly cozies up to Will, but it's soon clear that she has other motives.

Audience Reviews for Sky High

    I thought this was just okay. Kids will really enjoy the funny momenst and a superhero movie made just for them, but the parents will most likely fall asleep. It had cheap effects sadly and the acting was pretty horrible. However, the concept for the movie will be enjoyed by kids and the plot is actually not as bad as I thought. But to conclude, this movie was okay, but not even close to how good it could've been.

    While a different story, talented in-depth acting, and eye-popping visuals are actively present, the typical overdrawn relationship drama of a typical high school inflicts a rancid taste in this film's development.

    I didn't really think I'd like this film but it's one of my favourite films. It's underrated and really quite good. A must see!

    Oh man, this was lame. Superhero kids who go to high school in the sky? Somebody scream cheesy. And school for superhero kids? Didn't X-Men already do that? Why is Kurt Russell in this? Why?!
