The direct-to-video Ordinary Heroes stars Richard Dean Anderson as a blinded Vietnam veteran. Returning from the war with his spirit in tatters, Anderson tries to reassemble his pre-military life. He rekindles his relationship with former girl friend Valerie Bertinelli, an alternately painful and tender experience for them both. An all-but-forgotten film, Ordinary Heroes is worth at least a second look, if only for its intelligent, non-sensational treatment of the subject matter. In addition, the film contains what may well be Valerie Bertinelli's best performance.
