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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a shallow, treacly movie for children too little to question its many pointless puerilities."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"... a modestly engaging mix of broad comedy and nostalgic fable, spiked with a few unwelcome sprinklings of gross-out gags."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"A bland feel-good flick with a positive message."
‑ Jane Boursaw, Common Sense Media
"misguided and poorly executed"
‑ Pete Croatto, Filmcritic.com
"While this might sound amusing, animated inanimate objects can only do so much bouncing and rolling before their shtick gets stale."
‑ Manny Lewis, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"A sweet but very forgettable animated adventure."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"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."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Sweet and good-natured, but ultimately it's as unremarkable as its animation."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"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."
‑ Brian Clark, Austin Chronicle
"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."
‑ Peter Sobczynski, eFilmCritic.com
"The movie is a feast of miscalculations."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"... feels more like a 1950s cartoon."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Old-fashioned, sweet, but ultimately disposable family fare with echoes of better films from Toy Story to The Iron Giant."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"The setup of this computer-animated feature is strained, the story is contrived, and the ending is downright silly."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"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."
‑ D. Scott Apel, Reel.com
