* MightyWhitey: Deconstructed. Harrison Ford plays a brilliant but arrogant inventor who, disillusioned with the consumerism of American life and believing nuclear war is around the corner, and the fact that no one appreciates his "brilliance" in America, moves his family to a village in the rainforest of Belize and attempts to construct a utopian society there. SanitySlippage ensues.

The film was a commercial failure at the time, which many believed was due to audiences not being able to accept Ford, whose big claim to fame was playing lovable rogues such as Han Solo and Indiana Jones, in such an unlikable role (JackNicholson was reportedly the original choice for the role). Despite this, Ford still cites the film as one of his personal favorites from the work he's done.
