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>

I'm glad I didn't have to pay to see this movie
22 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I had paid, I would have asked for my money back. I am living in on a Navy base in Japan and we don't always get the newest releases. So when I found out that this movie was going to be played for free at the theater, I figured "Hey, Christopher Reeve was involved, I'll give it a shot" But I soon regretted that choice.

This movie lost me within the first 10 minutes as soon as I saw the baseball speak and it just got worse from there. Nevermind that the story is meant to prove that no matter how big or small you are that you can make a difference if you just keep trying, because there is way to much going on that it distracts you from that point.

I'll say that the kids in the theater seemed to like it and that's great, but even they were getting antsy after the first half hour. I would suggest waiting till this hits DVD. There are some amazing actors in the movie and it's saddening that they chose this particular flop to try and showcase their talents.
