"Everyone's Hero" is a wonderful tale about a young boy whose father is fired from his job at Yankee Stadium when Babe Ruth's bat is stolen on his watch. The boy knows who stole the bat and sets out to reclaim it for the Babe and to save his father's much needed job. The young boy, Yankee Irving, is a huge dreamer, who hopes to one day play for the Yankees. He picks up quite a friend in Screwie (Rob Reiner), a Major League foul ball who hesitantly agrees to help Yankee recover the bat as long as the boy promises to leave him to rot in the sandlot where Yankee found him.

Yankee meets quite a motley crew on his travels from New York to Chicago. He runs into some kind-hearted hobos, a young girl named Marti (Raven), who gets him in touch with her father, Rooster Brewster of the Negro League, who's team just happens to be headed to Chicago. He also runs into the villainous Lefty Maginnis (William H. Macy), a washed out pitcher who thinks that by stealing Babe's bat, Darlin', he can save his job with the Chicago Cubs and win the World Series.

The story moves at a wonderful pace and holds the attention of both children and adults. My daughter went crazy when Screwie and Darlin' went at each other, and the antics of Lefty had everyone laughing. It features an all-star cast including those aforementioned and Robert Wagner, Whoopi Goldberg, Mandy Patinkin, and Brian Dennehy as Babe Ruth. Joe Torre plays the manager of the Yanks and Dana Reeve plays Yankee's mom. Of course, Reeve and her husband, Christopher Reeve (who initially directed this film), both passed away before seeing this film come to life on the screen. They should both be proud of their work done on this film.

EVERYONE'S HERO is a charming, heartwarming, and delightful animated film about a young boy who loves baseball and leaves home to help his hero, Babe Ruth, and save his dad's job. The film includes an impressive cast of talented voice actors: Brian Dennehy, Whoopi Goldberg, Jake Austin, William H. Macy, Richard Kind, Mandy Patinkin, Rob Reiner, Raven-Symone, Robert Wagner, and even Joe Torre as the Yankee's Manager.

The year is 1932. "Yankee" Irving (Jake Austin) is a ten-year-old boy who lives in New York and loves baseball, but no matter how hard he tries he always ends up striking out and falling down. Yankee becomes frustrated and almost gives up until he finds a talking baseball (Rob Reiner). He names the ball Screwie and Screwie becomes Yankee's companion and, on a different level, a part of his conscious. Yankee's dad works at Yankee Stadium. The Yankee's are beating the Chicago Cubs in the World Series and the Cubs' owner (Robert Wagner) hatches a plan to have his dirtiest player, Lefty Maginnis (William H. Macy), steal Babe Ruth's bat, Darlin' (Whoopi Goldberg). Lefty runs into Yankee before he steals Darlin'. When Yankee's father is fired because of the missing bat, Yankee realizes what has happened and sets out to get Darlin' back and return her to the Babe. The journey takes Yankee from NewYork to Chicago. Along the way he meets some friendly hobos (actually most hobos in that period were friendly) and has an encounter with some baseball players in the Negro Leagues.

The movie vividly recreates the images of the early 1930s and the colorful palette is quite pleasing. At the film's heart is a message of determination and perseverance, even when the odds are stacked against a person.

This animated feature is far different than the ones I'm use to seeing. However, it surpasses the realism of many of the others with a powerful message of perservance and making your dreams happen. This movie made me laugh, then I cried; then I laughed again just to cry even more later. It's produced and directed by a man who valued himself the meaning of trying and trying again. In a collaboration with his wife Dana and other respected innovators, this was the last movie Christopher Reeve worked on before his death. There is a tribute to him as a bonus feature on this disc.

Like the ever popular first Ice Age movies and both Garfield films, the movie buyer has the option to both full and widescreen modes. However, I'm not happy with the double-sided release the studio decided to do. It's quiet annoying and even anxiety-ridden as you try extra hard when flipping the disc not to drop or scratch it. One side's bad enough, but double-sided is just not pleasing.

You could write what I know about baseball on the head of a pin and still have room for some batting averages. What can I say--when I saw that Whoopi Goldberg was doing the voice for a bat, I had to see the film.

Quickly, the young hero of this tale is Yankee Irving, who can't hit a ball to save his life but he still loves baseball and dreams of being great. One day, he discovers a talking baseball in the sandlot. His father works as a janitor for Yankee Stadium and takes him to see Babe Ruth's bat. As Yankee is drooling, a man he thinks is a janitor comes to steal the bat. Once Yankee realizes the theft cost his Dad his job, he sets out to capture the thief and return the bat on his own.

"Everyone's Hero" is a film for kids of all ages. The message is inspirational and Yankee Irving is so compelling you want to cheer him on even if you're not sure how the game is played.
