Accidental Heroes: An Action-Packed Emotional Drama From The Billion Copy Bestseller
About this deal
Remi: (To the paramedics) Actually I'm happy because if I didn't do my stupid video they wouldn't be here today! That's fate! Laura Ziskin, Alvin Sargent & David Webb Peoples the writer's of 'Hero' deserve a pat for their hard work and brilliant writing. And the director's understanding and execution is just a cherry on the cake.
All-Loving Hero: Bubber may not have saved the airplane passengers, but he is nevertheless this. His service in Vietnam was marked by him saving his entire unit. When he got a million dollars, rather than forget about all the remaining homeless people, he uses his newfound fame to help them. His compassion shines through when he visits the children's hospital. And of course, he risks his life saving Bernie on the ledge. HERO is a funny, smart, vastly underrated screwball comedy about mistaken identity, and what exactly it is that constitutes "heroism".The "Recall" short from Overwatch is a retroactive example of this. When Winston sends out the recall signal for all Overwatch agents, it was also transmitted to the long abandoned Eco-point Antarctica. Waking up Sole Survivor of the outpost, Mei, mere days before the station power would have died and left her to freeze with the others. Harry Potter is credited with defeating Voldemort as a baby, when it was really his mother's love that saved Harry and destroyed Voldemort's body. Allowing Harry to grow up without all that pressure is one of the main reasons Dumbledore arranges for him to live with Muggle Foster Parents (even if said foster family went a little too far the other way.)
As Gale leaves, she thanks Bernie for saving her life; and he reflexively replies, "You're welcome." She tells him to tell Joey the truth. John agrees to continue playing the part of public hero. While on an excursion to the zoo, Bernie decides to tell Joey the true story of the crash. After he does so, a lady cries out that her daughter has fallen into the lion's cage. Joey pleads with him to help, to which he sighs, slips off his shoes, and heads off to see what he can do.Nearly every movie starring Bob Hope or Don Knotts is a story of protagonists that are this trope. A lot of the Danny Kaye movies fit this trope too.
