A bland feel-good flick with a positive message.
May 10, 2007
Sweet and good-natured, but ultimately it's as unremarkable as its animation.

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

misguided and poorly executed

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.
September 27, 2006
The setup of this computer-animated feature is strained, the story is contrived, and the ending is downright silly.

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.
September 23, 2006
While this might sound amusing, animated inanimate objects can only do so much bouncing and rolling before their shtick gets stale.
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
It's a shallow, treacly movie for children too little to question its many pointless puerilities.
September 22, 2006
Way out of the league of any of the Disney/Pixar or Dreamworks animated films.

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.
September 19, 2006
A very unappealing animated feature about Babe Ruth, baseball, and family values.
September 18, 2006
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.
September 18, 2006
A sweet but very forgettable animated adventure.

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.
September 17, 2006
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.
September 15, 2006
The movie is a feast of miscalculations.
September 15, 2006
... a modestly engaging mix of broad comedy and nostalgic fable, spiked with a few unwelcome sprinklings of gross-out gags.
