    There's still plenty to recommend it, including memorable characters, solid storytelling, and accurate period detail.
  3. Probably the last movie to carry a credit for the late Christopher Reeve--as well as the last credit for Reeve's late wife, Dana.
  4. A strange film, because it seems designed specifically for extremely old moviegoers to see with their great-great-grandchildren.
  5. Subtle it is not. Well-intentioned it certainly is. No one but the youngest in the family will care very much about it, though. And they may well be filled with wonderment trying to figure out what this big Babe person is all about.

    Everyone's Hero, a tame CGI cartoon for the simple-minded: the very young, the very old and Yankee fans.

    An anemic adventure that epitomizes generic feature animation.

Not only does it have no humor pointed at people over 5, but the parts they tried to make funny were undoubtly pathetic. Talking baseballs and bats don't amuse tweens, teens, or adults, the only thing that this sort of thing amuses is 5 year-olds. Horrible Expand
