Yankee Irving loves baseball in a big way, but can't play to save his life. When a talking baseball rolls his way, and Babe Ruth's bat mysteriously goes missing, life gets a lot more interesting for little Yankee.

Everyone's Hero - Batter Up

Yankee Irving's young life is turned upside-down when he meets a talking baseball, Screwie. Shortly afterward, Babe Ruth's lucky bat goes missing right before the 1932 World Series. Yankee sets out with Screwie in tow to find the missing bat and return it to its rightful owner. But he's not the only one who's willing to fight for that bat!

Everyone's Hero - Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Yankee easily gets his hands on Darlin', the MIA bat who also turns out to be quite chatty, but he's soon tailed by the thief who wants her back. Yankee struggles to get Darlin' to Chicago in time for the last game of the series and is helped along his way by a sassy young girl (voiced by Raven-Symone), a few hobos and his spirited optimism. Along the way, he improves his pitch, learns to keep his eye on the ball and - most importantly - decides that no matter what life throws at him, he's just going to keep on swinging.

Everyone's Hero - DVD Features

Everyone's Hero is taking a victory lap 'round the bases on its DVD. The disc comes loaded with special features, including audio commentary, a tribute to Christopher and Dana Reeve (who both died before the movie came out), theatrical trailers, and a short documentary on the making of Everyone's Hero.

Everyone's Hero - The Bottom Line

While this is a well-meaning film with some pretty nifty animation, most of the film is a real snooze-fest. Not for one second of this "adventure" do you ever fear that Yankee will fail in his mission. In fact, the whole film pans out exactly the way you think it's going to, without a single curve ball thrown your way. Much is made out of this being former Superman Christopher Reeve's last hurrah before his unfortunate death (Reeve directed and executive produced the flick) and - in the spirit of this feel-good film - we give him credit for trying. However, if you judge the film solely on its own merits, this is much more of a miss than a hit.
