When Kyle and Jason are playing in the "dungeon" with Angelo and all three are on the sofa with Kyle on top of Angleo as Angelo's bodyguard comes into the room, you can see Kyle's blue underwear (at 56:03 and 56:08 to 56:10 in 99 minute version). Later, when Lenny pulls Kyle out of the trunk (boot) of the car at the airport, he has white underwear (at 01:12:48 to 01:12:50). See more »

Sky Kids was exciting from the beginning!
5 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great movie to be enjoyed by all the family (just watch out for some cursing and a little blood)! There were plot twists and edge of your seat moments that were not predictable! It was funny and suspenseful and had other good qualities that we look for in a movie. My kids were intrigued all the way through, and so was I. We really thought that Reiley McClendon did an excellent job! Also, Tom Sizemore and Stephen Baldwin added a great duo. However, a better describing title was the original title "Fly Boys". Another movie we liked by this producer was Princess of Thieves (starring Kiera Knightley), which you may want to watch also. I hope you like this movie. We did!
