Movie Info

A young boy finds himself at an extraordinary crossroads: He has a chance to be a hero--and make a difference against incredible odds--or he can play it safe. With faith in himself instilled by his family, he teams up with a sassy young girl and some off-the-wall sidekicks and embarks on a sometimes perilous, often funny, cross-country quest. In the process, he restores his family's honor, befriends the world's biggest sports superstar and reveals the hero within.

It's a shallow, treacly movie for children too little to question its many pointless puerilities.

A sweet but very forgettable animated adventure.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

The movie is a feast of miscalculations.

Washington Post
Top Critic

... a modestly engaging mix of broad comedy and nostalgic fable, spiked with a few unwelcome sprinklings of gross-out gags.

Top Critic

Everyone's Hero is a sweet, inspirational movie that doesn't offer any surprises, but entertains youthful audiences in a gentle, almost old-fashioned way.

... feels more like a 1950s cartoon.

Toronto Star
Top Critic

A bland feel-good flick with a positive message.

Common Sense Media

Sweet and good-natured, but ultimately it's as unremarkable as its animation.

Full Review… | May 10, 2007
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

Old-fashioned, sweet, but ultimately disposable family fare with echoes of better films from Toy Story to The Iron Giant.

Decent Films Guide

misguided and poorly executed

Full Review… | September 30, 2006

Young boys may be enchanted by the inspirational adventure, but for anyone over the age of nine, Yankee's journey is ultimately a dull one paved with good intentions.

Austin Chronicle

The setup of this computer-animated feature is strained, the story is contrived, and the ending is downright silly.

Sacramento News & Review

While this might sound amusing, animated inanimate objects can only do so much bouncing and rolling before their shtick gets stale.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

I suspect that most kids will get more excitement and thrills out of even the most meaningless end-of-season regulation ball game than they will with this film.

Full Review… | September 23, 2006

The opportunity to talk to the kids who see this little film about the Reeves' story -- a real-life triumph of inspiration over tragedy -- is perhaps the best tribute to the couple this film provides.

September 23, 2006

Way out of the league of any of the Disney/Pixar or Dreamworks animated films.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

It's difficult to find out just how much work Reeve did on the picture before his death two years ago, but the credit is a curious button on a very strange CG animated film.

Full Review… | September 20, 2006

A very unappealing animated feature about Babe Ruth, baseball, and family values.

Spirituality and Practice

There is absolutely nothing hip or cool about Everyone's Hero, but it's so sweet, and so pleasant, and so nice that I found it impossible to dislike.

Maybe I don't know what kids today like, but I have sympathy for the parents. This movie is so stupid. If I were four, I'd much rather just watch Baby Einstein on a continuous loop. At least it looks pretty.

I left the theatre wishing I could return to the days when I was a lot more like Yankee Irving than I'd care to admit.

Audience Reviews for Everyone's Hero


really cool kids flick. great story and fun to watch, especially with your kids if you have them. the only problem was the end, the last 15 minutes were dumb even for a kids movie. there are other directions the movie could have gone at the end to still be feel good without being stupid, but this one is still worth watching especially if you love baseball.
