A bland feel-good flick with a positive message.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

The movie is a feast of miscalculations.

... 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.
