Sky High

Character mistake: In the scene where Steve and Josie prepare to leave to fight the giant robot at the beginning of the movie, Steve tells Will "Oh, Will, a reminder: a lot of the kids at Sky High will only have one super hero parent, not two." When he says "one super hero parent", he holds up two fingers. When he says "not two", he holds up only one finger.


Continuity mistake: When Mr. Boy offers Layla a drink at the dance, the amount in the cup changes. Also, after Lash spills the drink on Mr. Boy, half the drink is still in the cup, but in the next shot the cups empty. (01:11:35)


Audio problem: When Will meets Layla at the bus stop he says to her "You're not going to believe what happened to me last night," however his mouth continues to move after he says this. (00:59:00)


Deliberate mistake: Mr. Medulla said that Will stepped on his foot when he was walking to his desk. If you look closely you can notice that he stepped over his foot instead of on it.


Revealing mistake: When Will flies back in through the window and picks up Royal Pain, you can see that the back of Will's jacket is sticking up, which was where the harness was lifting him up. (01:24:05)


Revealing mistake: There are multiple times throughout the movie when the "wind effect", the hair of the characters being blown up by wind off of Speed's super speed, is not in sync and occurs prior to Speed actually zooming past. The 2 most notable occurrences of this are when Speed steals the pudding from Ethan and moves next to Lash and when Speed steals the Pacifier from the secret sanctum.


Continuity mistake: The first time the bus takes off for Sky High, you see the name change from "School Bus" to "Sky High School Bus." In the next shot it says "School Bus" again. (00:08:50)

Continuity mistake: The school bus changes back and forth between a long and short version within several scenes.

Continuity mistake: When 'The Commander' gets mad in the kitchen, he hits the counter and all the utensils fly. Between shots the knives in the knife block change position and some disappear. (00:33:30)


Continuity mistake: In P.E., after Warren says, "Hey! Get your head in the game!", while Coach Boomer is giving them the rules to the game, the timer switches on, and the citizen gets lowered down. When the citizen starts out, its feet are pointing toward the timer board, but in the next shot, its body is parallel to it.

Continuity mistake: When Layla is being attacked by Penny she fights back using the plants, and breaks the window. As Penny is informing Layla that Royal Pain had broke the anti-gravity device the window is still broke, then the camera goes back to Penny and then again to Layla and to the right of Layla's head you can see the window fully intact again.

Continuity mistake: Kelly Preston's hair changes back and forth between shots, during the scene when the parents discover the party in their house, and in consecutive shots throughout the movie.

Visible crew/equipment: When Principal Powers disappears through the gym door, you can see a stage light that is visible beneath and behind Coach Boomer.


Revealing mistake: When Layla and Will are sitting on Will's roof, after she grows an apple for him, in one of the following shots when she's turning it around in her hands the apple has a visible plastic seam. (00:26:20)

Chris Moyer Grice

Continuity mistake: In P.E., when Will and Warren are up against Speed and Lash, the first time Will gets knocked over he gets thrown against a wall. When he lands on the floor, he is pretty close to the wall. In the next shot, after Zach says "Ouch", Will is much farther away from it.

Plot hole: In the scene where The Commander and Jetstream are called to fight the giant robot, Will's mom says "What if he forgets his lunch?" In every scene where he's eating lunch at school, Will has a school lunch.

Continuity mistake: When Will and Layla board the school bus near the beginning of the movie, Ron the driver chastises Will for asking if they are on the right bus and slams the door behind them. A few minutes later, when the Ron announces they are off for Sky Camp, he is shown pulling the "door close" handle again.


Character mistake: It is incorrect to say someone who controls technology a "technopath." The -pathy suffix denotes the "ability to feel." It would've been more correct to say "technokinesis" as the suffix refers to movement, ie. Telepathy vs Telekinesis.

Suggested correction: Technology controllers are always commonly called technopaths.

Gwen Grayson: I went through puberty twice for this?!

More quotes from Sky High

Trivia: Check out the "Aquabats" poster in Will's room. The Aquabats are a band that sing silly songs, while dressed in super-hero outfits. They do this for their videos as well as on stage. A funny little nod to the fact that a super-hero kid would like a band that dresses as super-heroes.

Question: Does anyone know what Mr. Boy's power is?

Answer: I'm pretty sure he has super jumping as you can see when there was an explosion in the science lab and also when he catches Josie in the school gym at homecoming.

Answer: He doesn't have one. Like Will in the beginning, he was assigned as a sidekick because he didn't have a power.
