Everyone's Hero is a 2006 computer animated film. It is directed by Colin Brady, Christopher Reeve (who was working on this film at the time of his death ), and Dan St. Pierre, with music by John Debney. The majority of this film was produced by IDT Entertainment in Toronto with portions outsourced to Reel FX Creative Studio. It was distributed by 20th Century Fox, and released to movie theatres on September 15, 2006. However, Everyone's Hero has performed poorly at the box office, having only earned $6 million in its opening weekend.
The film was rated G by the MPAA, being 20th Century Fox's first theatrically-released film to be rated G by the MPAA since 1997's Anastasia.
"Everyone's Hero" is a comedy-adventure, telling the story of young Yankee Irving's thousand-mile journey to help recover Babe Ruth's stolen bat in time for the Yankees to win the 1932 World Series, and to prove to his father that he did not steal it.
The film stars the voice talents of:

The Wild is a computer-animated film directed by Steve 'Spaz' Williams, produced by Clint Goldman, assistant produced by John Burton and C.O.R.E. Feature Animation, and was released by Walt Disney Pictures on April 14, 2006 (May 26 2006 in UK). The story was written by Ed Decter.
Samson the lion, known as "Samson R. the Wild", is the star of the New York City zoo. (Though the zoo's best-selling merchandise is a talking doll which looks like Nigel the koala, another resident.) Samson continually recounts tales of his adventures in the wild to his 13-year-old son Ryan, whose sense of inadequacy is heightened by the fact that his 'roar' is little more than a squeak. His father's stories fill him with a desire to escape, but Samson is perfectly content to remain in the zoo. (Later, however, Ryan sneaks into a shipping container bound for Africa.) Samson's conversation with his friend Benny, a squirrel, hints at a dark secret in the lion's past.
After the zoo closes, some animals play a...
A Bug's Life is a computer animated film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Distribution in the United States on November 25, 1998, in Australia on January 12, 1999 and in the United Kingdom on 5 February 1999. It's also the second Disney / Pixar feature film. It tells the tale of an oddball individualist ant who hires what he thinks are "warrior bugs" (actually circus performers) to fight off greedy grasshoppers. The film was directed by John Lasseter .
The story of A Bug's Life is a parody of Aesop's fable of The Ant and the Grasshopper. It is similar to the comedy ¡Three Amigos!, which is about out-of-work actors defending a town while thinking they're merely giving a performance. It also gives an obvious nod to Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai (as well as its Hollywood remake, The Magnificent Seven), which is about Japanese villagers hiring a rag-tag group of swordsmen to fight off rampaging bandits.

Clifford is a 1994 comedy film starring Martin Short, Charles Grodin, and Mary Steenburgen.
Martin Short stars as a deceptive ten year-old boy named Clifford Daniels, whose dream is to visit Dinosaur World, a theme park located in Los Angeles, California. While flying with his mother (Theodora Daniels, played by Jennifer Savidge) and father (Julien Daniels, played by Richard Kind) on one of his father's business trips to Hawaii, Clifford purposely causes a catastrophe on board, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing in California. From the airport, Julien phones his brother (Martin Daniels, played by Charles Grodin) who coincidentally resides in Los Angeles, and proposes the idea of Clifford living with Martin for the extent of the business trip. Martin complies, realizing that this would be the perfect opportunity to prove to his fiancée (Sarah Davis, played by Mary Steenburgen) how great he interacts with children, especially the nephew he hasn't seen in years. Little does...
Tom and Jerry: The Movie is a 1993 animated feature film, the first feature to star Turner Entertainment's cat-and-mouse team Tom and Jerry, and the only Tom and Jerry feature to be released theatrically worldwide, although Tom and Jerry: The Fast and the Furry was theatrically released in select cities of the US by Kidtoon Films.
The film is a departure from the typical Tom and Jerry cartoons: Tom and Jerry have a new look in this film, giving spoken dialogue lines they didn't have in the cartoons. The duo works together to help an orphan girl in trouble, and the film contains numerous musical numbers. The film was received poorly by critics and viewers alike.
Richard Kind provided the voice of Thomas "Tom" Jasper Cat, and Dana Hill provided the voice of Gerald "Jerry" Mouse. Tom & Jerry creator Joe Barbera sevred as creative consultant for the picture, his partner Bill Hanna was absent from the project. The film was directed by Phil Roman, produced by Film Roman for Turner...,
