Man, what a movie! I found these teenagers very attractive...I mean the movie....anyways this movie was very interesting. If you haven't seen this movie, basically a man walks into a room and is immediately consumed by Donald Trump. The rest of the movie takes place in the world of Donald Trump's stomach. What's that? Apparently that is not the plot at all and I made that up. Did I see that in a movie? I may have dreamed that. Who can tell the difference anyway? Wait...am I dreaming now? Anyways, see this movie sports fans! Yes, I'm saying that now.

"Will Stronghold" (Michael Angarano) is your typical teenager with the same problems all teens entering high school have -- except one. His parents are the greatest superheroes on the planet, "The Commander" (Kurt Russel) and "Jetstream" (Kelly Preston).
"Will" also has a unique problem that kids without super-powered parents doesn't have to deal with. It doesn't seem that he has any powers.
This is not really a movie about superheroes. It is, in fact, a new twist on the new kid in high school theme. It has every plot twist other high school movies have -- from getting on the wrong side of the school's resident bully, to realizing your best friend is the one you are destined to be with and the ever-popular party when the parents are away.
On the other hand, it is an adorable …
