Will Stronghold -- the son of two superheroes known as the Commander and Jetstream -- is the only kid at Sky High who hasn't developed superpowers yet, which means he may be relegated to the less-than-thrilling role of a sidekick.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the film includes several scenes of knock-down, spectacular (but cartoonish) violence, where kids with superpowers slam each other into walls and through windows, or zap one another with freeze rays and fireballs. One particular kid is sulky, others are anxious, and several are bullies, dunking one child's head in a toilet, throwing someone's cap in the mud, tripping, harassing, and beating up smaller kids. At the beginning of the film, superparents save the city, while a TV announcers says, "Evil has struck our morning commute," which some sensitive viewers might want to discuss, in relation to the recent London underground attacks. There is some mild profanity.
- Sexual Content
- High school students kiss chastely; women heroes wear form-fitting costumes.
- Lots of cartoony action; three major fights involving fireballs, slamming into walls and windows.
- Very mild ("butt" and "sucks").
- Social Behavior
- Deceits, fights, dirty tricks, and a supervillain's plot to destroy the school.
- Band posters on bedroom wall.
