Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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
"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
"The movie is a feast of miscalculations."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"... feels more like a 1950s cartoon."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"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
"... a modestly engaging mix of broad comedy and nostalgic fable, spiked with a few unwelcome sprinklings of gross-out gags."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"It's all good fun, but the film really only works if one buys its more awkward elements."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"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
