When you're the son of the world's most legendary superheroes The Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston), there is only one school for you - Sky High, an elite high school that is entrusted with the responsibility of molding today's power-gifted students into tomorrow's superheroes. The problem is that Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) is starting with no superpowers of his own and, worst of all, instead of joining the ranks of the "Hero" class, he finds himself relegated to being a "Sidekick." Now he must somehow survive his freshman year while dealing with an overbearing gym coach (Bruce Campbell), a bully with super speed and a dangerous rebel with a grudge (and the ability to shoot fire from his hands)... not to mention the usual angst, parental expectations and girl problems that accompany teenage life.

Sarah Nolan, a young pre-school teacher, is looking for love. After a series of disastrous, but hilarious, dates she decides to swear off dating for good. Her well-meaning family and friends are not going to let her give-up quite so easily though. They enroll her in on-line dating where she meets what could be her perfect man, but... he loves dogs and his ad states that she MUST LOVE DOGS also. Sarah doesn't though - in fact she can't stand them. So she borrows a dog to impress him with hilarious results. Can she overcome her dislikes to enjoy a relationship with her new found love or will both two legged and four legged friends intervene?
