What if you had one chance to be a hero? Would you take it? Or play it safe?
That is the question facing an ordinary boy, Yankee Irving (Jake T. Austin) in “Everyone’s Hero,” a funny and warm tale of a kid who believes he can make a difference if he just hangs in there despite overwhelming odds. With a faith in himself instilled by his loving family, Stanley (Mandy Patinkin) and Emily Irving (Dana Reeve), he teams up with a sassy young girl, Marti Brewster (Raven-Symone) 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, Babe Ruth (Brian Dennehey), and reveals the hero within.
“Everyone’s Hero” is an animated family film of the highest caliber. It is an enjoyable tale with many positive themes: a loving intact family, good reliable friends, goal setting, never giving up, and a belief in yourself. Equally significant is the compelling storyline, fantastic animation, good acting, directing and production. Families couldn’t ask for a better reason to go out to the theater together and be thoroughly entertained and flooded with wonderful positive images and themes.
