Sky High!

I realize that there may be only one other person who has seen Sky High, but popcasting it filled my bus ride today, so I thought I'd throw it out there.

Okay, so Joey is about to start his first day at Sky High, the high school for superheroes. On the first day of class, you have to show everyone your superpower and based on its awesomeness, or lack thereof, you get sorted into Hero stream or Sidekick stream. Joey's the son of the two biggest superheroes and so big things are expected of him. Only, he doesn't have a superpower yet. Angst! He does however, have his best friend, JC. Joey and JC have been friends since the first grade. JC's superpower is harnessing nature and making trees and flowers appear and grow and stuff. JC doesn't like to use his power for to hurt others, and he doesn't believe in the class system either, so he ends up in sidekick voluntarily. Joey has to admit he has no power and it's humiliating and he's a sidekick too, only he can't tell his parents. But JC is there to comfort him. Nick is another friend of theirs who ends up in sidekick, though he thinks his awesome ability to glow in the dark merits hero status.

Joey ends up admitting to his parents that he doesn't have a power, and might never get one. Of course, they are incredibly supportive, as Papa Fatone loves his Joey. As it turns out, the whole class of sidekicks are a great bunch of kids and Joey fits right in. There's Lance, who can turn to goo on command, and AJ who's a gerbil shapeshifter. But they constantly get picked on by the nasty Kevin and [someone else, possibly someone from 98 degrees]. And Joey has an arch nemesis, Chris. Chris is the son of a hero and a villain, who Papa Fatone took down. Chris is all scary and a loner and can throw fire and stuff. And when he and Joey finally come to blows and it looks scary for Joey...he gets his power!! Super strength! He is thrilled and so are the parents and he gets switched to Hero class.

This is where he gets to hang out with his crush, Justin. He's the most popular girl in school, and Joey has a crush on him. Justin tutors Joey in science type things and they're planning on going to homecoming together (or maybe it's called the hero ball? I can't remember). This is devastating for JC, who is totally in love with Joey. JC is also perfect for Joey, but he doesn't notice, of course. JC vows to make Joey jealous by going to the dance with Chris. It turns out Chris is really a good guy, and of course JC can charm him into doing anything.

Justin is totally leading Joey down a popular path of destruction, making Joey leave behind all his sidekick friends, which Joey doesn't want to do. Finally, Joey realizes this and ditches Justin...but is it too late?

Yada, yada, yada, Justin turns out to be evil, Joey must save the world with the help of his sidekick friends and Chris, and most importantly, JC and Joey KISS BECAUSE THEY ARE IN LOVE. The end.

And if you haven't seen this movie, you really should. It's adorable and funny and sweet.

OH MY GOD. It's like you were reading my mind. And ahahahahaha! JC is so the plant girl, and AJ the goth gerbil shapeshifter with all that attitude. And Chris as that other enemy guy (can't remember his name) is HOT.
Chris is Warren Peace! And he is totally hot. I thought maybe that could be JC, because of the pink he likes to wear, but I lovelovelove JC as Layla the plant girl. And Joey and JC as bestfriends/boyfriends!
I must see this film, clearly.
You really, really, really should.
You must! Everyone in it is so cute and there is Dave Foley as a sidekick teacher and the main character is just Adorable to the max. Plus, then you can see how perfect Joey fits as the main character, because he values his friends SO MUCH. Also, he loves JC.
Okay, I have many things to say about the perfection of this popcast, but first and foremost NICK IS TOTALLY THE GLOWING KID YOU ARE THE BEST EVER NIIIICK!!!

Joey IS Will Stronghold and JC IS Layla and Chris IS Warren Peace, omg, best ever! THEY KISS AND FLOAT IN THE AIR BECAUSE THEY ARE IN LOVE!!! Oh, JOEY!

This makes me very happy. Oh, Sky High!
JC COMES TO SIT ON JOEY'S ROOF WITH HIM AND GIVES HIM AN APPLE BECAUSE HE CAN'T MAKE LEMONS!!!!!
AAAH THIS IS THE BESTEST PART!!!!!! THEY ARE TOO CUTE. I NEED SCREENCAPS OF THIS MOVIE - WITH JC AND JOEY IF POSSIBLE.
This worked out so well. The only one I'm not 100% on is Justin. I mean, he is totally the most popular one, but I don't know if he's that evil. Of course, because he's really from the past, it could be Jordan Knight or someone. Hmmm.

But JOEY!!! I love him and he loves his friends and he loves JAYCEEEEEE! JC puts pretty smelling flowers in his locker!
