  • I also enjoyed watching Andy Garcia in this movie

      “Accidental Hero” is a great movie with a good story involving three great talented actors, Dustin Hoffman, Gena Davis and Andy Garcia. We have seen Hoffman in a lot of different characters; however I believe that there is something very special about his acting part in this movie. It is a true pity that he hasn’t won any awards for it!

      “Accidental Hero” is

      about Bernard ‘Bernie” Laplante (Hoffman) who is a poor man and a thief but, after watching a plane crashing, he manages to save a lot of lives without any one knowing. TV journalist Gale Gayley (Davis) was on board of the plane and wants to thank the person who saved her life. She starts to search for the man who rescued her life.

      • Things complicate when John Bubber (Garcia) presents himself as the hero of the situation! What is Bernie going to do?

        I also enjoyed watching Andy Garcia in this movie. We are so used in seeing him interpret the mafia guy that is a breath of fresh air to see him interpret a very different role. Two years after this movie, Garcia was involved with

        another great movie “When a Man Loves a Woman”. Mariah Cary’s “Hero” was linked with this movie; however the producers simply didn’t feel it fitted in with the whole project.

        “Accidental Hero’ is a great story about how the media works and the desperate search for a hero. This movie is a great tribute to three great actors Hoffman, Garcia and Davis.
