A bland feel-good flick with a positive message.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

It's all good fun, but the film really only works if one buys its more awkward elements.

The humor and action should please kids from 5 to 10, while adults won't need to squirm.

Five days after screening Everyone's Hero, I'm still cringing a little, in my grown-up, jaded way, at the cute, corny, earnestness of the film.

Despite its slow pace, Hero's message of perseverance is inspiring, coming from the Reeves, who both faced adversity with remarkable grace. If you're yearning for a simpler time, the innocence of Hero may hit a home run for you.

The cartoon is amiable enough and has bright comic moments.

A likable, lumbering, computer-animated children's movie set during the Depression that is more entertaining than it has any right to be.

This handsomely animated, well-directed and -voiced G-rated film, set in the hope-starved era of the Depression, takes on special poignancy as the last directing project of Christopher Reeve.

This computer-animated baseball adventure espouses a shopworn moral about persevering against long odds, but there's still plenty to recommend it, including memorable characters, solid storytelling, and accurate period detail.

Everyone's Hero is a perfectly serviceable bit of family animation -- neither overtly saccharine nor overly sanguine.

Christopher and Dana Reeves provide a paean to courage and not giving up, giving a slap in the face to Clint Eastwood's glorification of weakness and surrender, Million Dollar Baby.

Everyone's Hero has good values, a decent story and a happy ending. It will probably play a lot better on video, but for the moment it's on the big screen.
