Storyline

A young boy named Yankee Irving 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. Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

Goofs

In the 'newsreel' after the World Series game, the voice-over says that the Yankees scored seven runs in that inning, and that Babe Ruth drove in four. This is impossible because of simple math. Babe Ruth led off the inning with a strikeout - one out. The next batter also goes down - two outs. The kid (third batter of the inning) then gets an in-the-park home run - one run in and still two outs. Then let's assume that batters #4, 5, and 6 get singles without scoring. Every consecutive batter who follows must then drive in a run (no more outs to give). So if batters #7, 8, and 9 each drive in a run, the Yankees have already scored four runs in the inning by the time Ruth comes back up to bat. If he drives in four more, the Yankees will have scored eight in the inning, not seven as announced. See more »

Not as bad as it could have been
1 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everyone's Hero is charming kiddie fare. I didn't hate it but the story sorta screamed straight to video. However, for a film about a talking bat and baseball, I think I was a little more entertained then I expected to be.I like others thought the premise was a little ridiculous, but it gives the feeling of a Saturday morning cartoon where inanimate objects talk for no reason. Fair enough. The premise was still box office poison. Still, the film has some characters that aren't gratingly annoying, and of course the exaggerated one dimensional villains that you would expect. Aside from the lukewarm story, I was a little disturbed by some of the sequences involving young yankee irving in situations that are quite dangerous, aside from the realistic overall film. There is a looney tunes-esquire train segment where characters are jumping from train to train at full speed, and the end where yankee seems to acquire superpowers. Also, the very idea that he travels across half the country and it's kind of downplayed, it just doesn't mix well with the "you can do anything" theme of the film. It suggests to young children that they can literally do anything. It just doesn't seem like the best message to convey. Other than that, it's cute and not terribly original. The animation reveals obviously that this film wasn't done on an 100 million dollar budget, I think what they came out with matches the tone of the film. I'd recommend it to anyone with young children who enjoy baseball or for anyone who needs just a fun little film to pop in the DVD player to distract the kids for a little while.
