Heroes is a poorly-written melodrama about a troubled Vietnam veteran and a girl who helps him work out his problems. The multi-location production stars Henry Winkler, in a good though flawed performance, and Sally Field.

Plot peg is standard – boy and girl, running from separate problems, meet ‘cute’ and fall in love with some ups and downs enroute.

Speaking of the writing ‘cutes’, there’s a plague in this screenplay, mainly in the Winkler character and the actor’s performance. Since the character has a history of mental malaise, the kooky bits are many and just awful. See Winkler confound his doctor, Hector Elias. See him escape from the hospital. See him run and jump and streak and shout.
