How We Determine Our Grades

The Incredibles is another film with super characters, created jointly by Disney and Pixar Studios. And did you notice the old yearbook picture of Will’s dad? In a past Disney film, Kurt Russell (Captain Stronghold) played a whiz kid in The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, the movie in which he wore that same great sports jacket!

Home Video Extra Features

School has never been as out of this world as it is in Buena Vista Home Entertainment’s Sky High. Offered either in wide or full screen editions, the DVD features an alternate opening, Breaking Down the Walls (the stunts of Sky High) and Welcome to Sky High (a behind-the-scenes look at the making the movie with the cast and crew). All buddy superheroes will take comfort in the Super Bloopers (which features a little extra kissing not mentioned in our review, and a prank that shows a boy in boxer shorts), while music fans will enjoy Bowling for Soup’s music video I Melt With You. Audio tracks are available in English (Dolby Digital 5.1), Spanish (Dolby Digital 5.1), French (Dolby Digital 5.1), with subtitles in French.
