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

When Yankee and his dad are looking at Babe Ruth's bat in the Yankee's locker room, the dad says how Babe Ruth had it custom made 3 years ago, and Yankee replies how that was the first season Babe Ruth hit 50 home runs. Since the movie is set in 1932, it would mean that 1929 was Babe Ruth's first 50hr season. Babe had already had 4 50hr seasons-1920, 1921, 1927, 1928, and did not hit 50hr in 1929 at all. See more »

What's all the fuss? This is a fine movie.
26 September 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

It's strange how people are reacting to this movie. I'm not sure what they're expecting. This is simply a fine, fun movie for the 4 to 10 year old set. I brought a group of kids with me that were in that age group and they all loved it. They were cheering at the end. As a parent I also found it quite enjoyable. It's no "Shrek" I suppose, but few movies are. This is just a fine animated film with a good plot, a good moral, and no bad language. Some reviewers are upset because some things don't make sense - like whether there could be lights on Wrigley field, or whether "Seabiscut" was around at the time this movie was supposed to take place? Please. Who cares? Certainly the kids don't. What more could you want in a fun animated flick for children? Take your kids to see it and enjoy.
