The cast is reduced to acting out a series of adjectives.
A mess, though very often an enjoyable one, thanks to the cast.
A misconceived project, inspired by classic Hollywood films of golden age (Nothing Scared, Hail the Conquering Hero) but marred by underdeveloped and rambling script--Stephen Frears first big failure.
Solid performances all-round
Solid performances mired in excess Capradom
hangs its dynamic visual artistry on a compelling story.
Funny and (just about) before its time.
Comes close to working, but finally fails to click
An engrossing film that challenges us to think about the true meaning of heroism in this age of media-manufactured celebrities.
It's not the best picture of the director, but Stephen Frears' comedy presents a good concept, just like the screenplay and that make me identify oneself with the character Bernie LaPlante (Dustin Hoffman) in some bad moments. We see that Frears, is trying bring to the contemporary cinema the Frank Capra style, but that don't help very much Hero. Fresh.
We're all heroes if you catch us at the right moment.
Its an ok movie, pretty enjoyable!
Its funny but not what you call laugh out loud funny!
I like this movie as it is quite amusing and its a great cast and the storyline is ok but its just a bit predictable and can get annoying in places as its that sort of typical movie where you've cried wolf too many times no one believes you and then everyone and everything is then getting in the way of things, so it can get irritating but apart from that its worth a watch even if you only watch it the once.
Dustin Hoffman plays a man who isnt your typical hero and is only concerned about himself but when a plane crashes down in front of him he finds himself becoming an international hero and loved by eeveryone.... the onlky problem is some hobbo has taken the claim for something Hoffman has done! so throughout this movie we find out how hoffman wins his money back and becomes the hero!!
This saucy spin on Frank Capra's Meet Joe Doe is an acerbic - and often tremendously funny - indictment of American hero-worship.
