The script is anachronistic and trite ...

A sweet but very forgettable animated adventure.

As if being the lousiest team in baseball isn't bad enough, now the Chicago Cubs are being called out by a cartoon.

If you've always wanted to hear inanimate objects argue with each other in the personas of Cranky Jewish Guy and Sassy Black Woman, this is a dream come true.

The movie is a feast of miscalculations.

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.

Everyone's Hero is just the same old over-produced CGI-animated sap they keep shoveling at the kids--except there's a talking baseball and bat in this one. Fun!

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

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

... a tame CGI cartoon for the simple-minded: the very young, the very old and Yankee fans.

The movie means well and, like tee ball, it's probably best suited for the littlest kids only.

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.

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

Everyone's Hero is an after-school special stretched to feature-film length.

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

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

I can't say Everyone's Hero strikes out -- it might distract little kids for a while -- but the directors needn't bother practicing their home run trots.

No one but the youngest in the family will care much about it ...

Managing a little warm-and-fuzzy by the end, the story is so dopily convoluted that even six-year-olds will have a hard time suspending their disbelief.

It's a shame that Christopher Reeve's final directorial effort could not have been a more fitting, and lasting, tribute.
