* ''Film/ForrestGump''. He actually appears to succeed ''[[TheFool because]]'' [[TheFool of his idiocy, or rather]], because it never seems to occur to him to do anything other than the Right Thing by traditional standards. He becomes a decorated war hero just by trying to save his Army buddy Bubba and his comrades. His shrimping business succeeds only because a hurricane has sunk every boat in the harbor but his; it is strongly implied this is because Gump has been going to church lately and got God on his side. Other characters who do not share his conventional morality, and explore alternative values and lifestyles as so many Americans did in the 1960s and '70s, [[ReactionaryFantasy act like total bastards and/or make fools of themselves.]] Even the good-hearted Jenny succumbs to DeathBySex, since she gets AIDS.

* ''Film/ShipOfMonsters'' has Lauriano, who doesn't even realize what's going on until the last minute. He wins mostly through luck.

* Clumsy, slow-witted BumblingDad Gang-du from ''Film/TheHost'' is a tragicomic example. He's constantly viewed as the family screw-up, and because he's such an idiot he endangers lives without meaning to. [[spoiler: He even got his father killed after he miscounted the number of bullets in his gun]]. Still, he can be a CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass when the situation calls for it.

%%* ''Film/InspectorGadget''

to:

%%* ''Film/InspectorGadget''* ''Film/InspectorGadget'', true to his cartoon roots.
* Lt. Frank Drebin from ''Film/TheNakedGun'' is fairly competent, but given he lives in a slapstick world, he's always prone to dumb sayings\decisions, pratfalls (though once it helped, as Frank tripped on the power chord of a bomb and stopped it), and humiliating things.



%%* Creator/AdamSandler in most of his movie roles.

%%* * Creator/AdamSandler in most of his movie roles.roles. Film/BillyMadison even has the justification of having dropped out of ''grad school''. ''Film/{{Pixels}}'' has Sandler excel due to knowing old-school video games.
