Children Will Be Inspired by Christopher Reeves' "Hero"
- Thursday, September 14, 2006
For example, Yankee almost nonchalantly lets a new friend teach him how to dodge apples and keep his eye on where a pitch originates and not where it’s going, and he casually allows a traveling team of ball players from Cincinnati to teach him to hit crazy curve balls – no matter what bumps in the road may come. Little does he know just how hugely the little lessons and warnings of life might add up to make – or break – a guy’s big dream.
As believers, we can take away some great truths from “Everyone’s Hero,” one of the best being that God uses the weak and foolish things – and people – to confound the wise and do great exploits. The movie extols the family by showing committed, pursuing parents, and it is a beautiful lesson on perseverance. Just as “Finding Nemo” taught us to “just keep swimming,” “Everyone’s Hero” shouts, “Just keep swinging!” My, we're going to be exhausted!
AUDIENCE: Children and adults
- Drugs/Alcohol: None
- Language/Profanity: None
- Sex/Nudity: None
- Violence: Plenty of slapstick violence. For instance, the Cubs Manager beats and maims the bobble-head toy image of Babe Ruth. The bad guy gets pummeled in all sorts of ways, but is able to rise back up again and continue his evil pursuit.
