Ordinary Heroes ★★½ 1985

The story is familiar but the leads make it worthwhile. Anderson is strong as a blinded Vietnam vet readjusting to life at home. Bertinelli's portrayal of his former girlfriend is eloquent. Nice work on an overdone story. 105m/C VHS . Richard Dean Anderson, Doris Roberts, Valerie Bertinelli; D: Peter H. Cooper.
