Synopsis

The Marshalls aren’t just your typical family. While ordinary in appearance, they are actually superheroes, each with a secret identity and superhuman power used to battle evil. In this original comedy, Scott Marshall has been anxiously awaiting his 14th birthday, traditionally the time when superheroes attain full control of their powers and are granted their alter identity. Unfortunately, Scott is exhibiting no signs of extraordinary behavior of any kind. Fearing that his parents will be disappointed in having a “normal” son, Scott pretends to have superhuman strength and the ability to fly.

When the family is captured by a criminal mastermind intent on using mind control to take over the world, Scott uses brains to rescue his family and discovers that it takes more than superpowers to make a true hero. Airs 1/22/00 at 7:30pm ET/PT and throughout the month on The Disney Channel.

Dove Review

A funny film parents will enjoy with the little ones. Replete with cool special effects and life lessons such as being loved just for being you and not needing super powers to be a superhero. The family motto is Truth, Respect, Honor.

Content Description

One mild expletive. The action sequences are fun, yet tame.
