19 December 1999 | Troels-4
A bold statement.
I felt not only well entertained by this film, it also reinforced my disdain towards the way media makes heroes out of people with media flair, instead of the people who really deserve it. As Bubber, the imposter, played in the film by Garcia so emphatically puts it: "We're all heroes if you catch us at the right moment". The falseness of this otherwise bold and inspiring message brings out a seldom heard truth about the way lies have sold so well in this century. And how most people are willing to sell their souls for the supposed joy of being a celebrity.

The similarity with the fabulous "Fearless" (starring Jeff Bridges) is striking, in spite of the completely different realization and overall mood of the film.
