Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Matt Singer, Village Voice
"Funny, clever and even a bit inspirational, hinting at the potential for heroism in all of us."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Sky High is the latest Disney teen comedy about the pitfalls of adolescent life, but is much, much better than it seems like it should be in large part due to its strong cast and assured direction."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"...achieves a miraculous level of kitchy zip thanks to its creative casting of Kurt Russell, Lynda Carter, and Bruce Campbell."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Here, teen empowerment takes on a very literal form, even if events never stray far from the world as envisaged in a John Hughes movie."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"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."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"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."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"Cartoony high school superhero drama; OK for tweens."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, Common Sense Media
"I'm a sucker for comic book movies, and "Sky High" won me over..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It might be aimed at teens, but Sky High is fun for parents, too."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Harmless family comedy with welcomely loopy asides."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"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."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"surprisingly clever, spirited and joyful"
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"Just kind of a mildly entertaining footnote."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Sky High is adolescent, in the best, age-appropriate sense of the word; it's like a John Hughes movie, but for tweens."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
