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

In the 'newsreel' after the World Series game, the voice-over says that the Yankees scored seven runs in that inning, and that Babe Ruth drove in four. This is impossible because of simple math. Babe Ruth led off the inning with a strikeout - one out. The next batter also goes down - two outs. The kid (third batter of the inning) then gets an in-the-park home run - one run in and still two outs. Then let's assume that batters #4, 5, and 6 get singles without scoring. Every consecutive batter who follows must then drive in a run (no more outs to give). So if batters #7, 8, and 9 each drive in a run, the Yankees have already scored four runs in the inning by the time Ruth comes back up to bat. If he drives in four more, the Yankees will have scored eight in the inning, not seven as announced. See more »

Quotes

Announcer: And it just goes to show you... You can be the smallest, you can be the weakest, you can be the worst player on the field, but when people tell you you're no good, and say you should give it up, you know what you do? You just keep on swinging.

too heavy handed in its message
10 December 2007 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

while i don't think this was a horrible movie,i did find it disappointing.just thought the message(persevere no matter what life throws at you)was too heavy handed.it is a good message,but i thought it could have been more subtle.there are some good things about the movie.one is the physical comedy,which van be quite funny at times.the other is the exciting action sequences.but most of the movie just seemed a bit hollow for me.the story just seems lacking.the message just becomes overbearing,and ends up dragging the rest of the movie down.it feels more like sermon on life,than an entertaining animated feature.anyway,for me,Everyone's hero is a 5/10
