For example, on a place of falling of aircraft, passengers whom he will save. For this heroic act Bernie is awarded the prize of one million dollars. But between him and the coveted cheque is wedged impostor, ready for such amounts to impersonate anyone, at least for the Bernie LaPlante.

The combination is simple but not stupid humor and serious sense. For all the twists and turns of the plot follow with interest. The character Bernie LaPlante is generally great. It an incredulous look leaves a lasting impression. What most interesting, there is a single of the main positive hero. And LaPlante and Bubber have their advantages and disadvantages, they complement each other. From the secondary actors like the young lawyer and the head of Gail — excellent facial features. In General the film is very positive. although raises serious problems for a separate plus.

Great movie with great actors — which is not old Dustin Hoffman and a young Andy Garcia and Geena Davis. But not quite a Comedy, at some moments even a serious drama, the fate of the very fairly treated the real hero in the performance of Hoffman. Humor, I think there in how caricature shows TV people, who rejoice in any tragedy, just make her sensation.

Dustin Hoffman played one of the best roles, along with"rain Man", "the Moth" and"Tutsi". Very conflicting it turned out the way — one-side — hobo loser, a petty crook and a thief, with other — people who are ready to do mighty deeds, to sacrifice themselves.

Andy Garcia is also impressed, playing a villain, "appropriated" someone else's feat, from which the final "awaken" the conscience.

The beauty of Gina Davis looks great in the role of the charming reporter. Also remember and minor actors — Chevy chase (which is not specified the credits, he played the role of a chief on TV), Kevin George. O'connor in the image of the "freak" of the operator That Arnold (bartender) and Joan Cusack in the role of the wife of the protagonist.

In the end, it turned on the surprise of very breathtaking movie that looks at one breath of the genre of tragicomedy — rare.

Of 9 10. Great!

Not everyone gets the chance to show heroism in an extreme situation. Not everyone to it is generally agree. The Batman and spider-Man in the calculation is not take a professional rescuers and firefighters. Although, as shows the film American firefighters follow strict instructions for saving, where there is no point "reckless heroism".

Confused and completely lost in life intricacies of Dustin Hoffman accidentally turns on the scene of the crash. He rush to the son, he is very important to fulfill its promise, it stops not that it needs to rescue the survivors and only that it is not can go around burning plane.

A player waiting for another test — his glory and outstanding a million dollars brazenly appropriates a homeless man, the son of do not want to him, and finally he 're facing some prison time.

The film is about that in this crazy tangle of problems need to be yourself that even the most hopeless situation, you can find out what yesterday's pauper could easily become a media Prince, and the real heroes are much more advantageous to live in the shadows, waiting for new cries for help.
