New York Daily News
Whoever wanders into the theater should leave a winner.

Entertainment Weekly
Everyone's Hero re-creates Depression-era America with surprisingly agreeable anachronistic panache, but a sassy ball and bat don't cut it as compelling cartoon characters, and the not-so-human humans never quite do either (Babe Ruth looks like Shrek).
63
A sweet, inspirational movie that doesn't offer any surprises, but entertains youthful audiences in a gentle, almost old-fashioned way.

Chicago Tribune
Probably the last movie to carry a credit for the late Christopher Reeve--as well as the last credit for Reeve's late wife, Dana.
50
A strange film, because it seems designed specifically for extremely old moviegoers to see with their great-great-grandchildren.
50
Everyone's Hero is sincere and heartwarming; sometimes it's funny.

The Hollywood Reporter
A tweener but not necessarily a good one. It falls into the gap between good intentions and faulty storytelling.

New York Post
Everyone's Hero, a tame CGI cartoon for the simple-minded: the very young, the very old and Yankee fans.
50
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Some films, like "Shrek," "The Incredibles" and "Finding Nemo," manage to strike the right balance. Others, like Everyone's Hero -- opening today -- do not.
40
For anyone over the age of nine, Yankee's journey is ultimately a dull one paved with good intentions.
25
An anemic adventure that epitomizes generic feature animation.
