Movie Info

Like most teenagers, 14-year-old Scott Marshall (Michael J. Pagan) feels like a misfit "freak" within his own family. In this instance, however, circumstances are a bit different. Practically every member of the Marshall family possesses super-powers and leads a double life as a costumed hero. His dad, Jim (Robert Townsend, who also directed this film), is an orthodontist by day and the crime-busting Bronze Eagle by night. Even Grandpa Marshall (Sherman Hemsley), now in retirement, can recall the good old days when he battled the forces of evil as the Steel Condor. Alas, poor Scott possesses none of his parents' or his siblings' special powers -- in fact, he's so clumsy that he is in danger of being washed out of his school's soccer team. But Scott eventually proves that there's more to heroics than mere muscle power when he's called upon to rescue his family from a gang of techno-villains. Up, Up and Away made its Disney Channel cable TV bow on January 22, 2000.

Audience Reviews for Up, Up, and Away!

This film is one of the worst DCOM's out there. The plot is in many ways similar to Sky High (which to the film's credit came out later), but what Sky High got right, this film got wrong. The characters are boring, the plot is dumb, and the film is emotionally unsatisfying. This film is just plain bad, nothing more, nothing less. 2.3/10

If you are looking for another classic Disney Channel original movie, then this is the movie for you. Disney sticks with their tradition of using a few adults(mostly neighbors and parents), and instead, letting mid-range teens carry the story from their point of view. For a nontraditional superhero movie I was impressed. This one had real life conflict, usable and applicable life lessons, and of course Classic Disney humor.

um... acting was pretty awful... Costumes sucked. I didn't enjoy it. Plot was alright, the theme was better, but could have been better pulled off in a different story.
