A 2009 film starring WoodyHarrelson and KatDennings. Harrelson plays a well-meaning but mentally challenged man who creates the identity of Defendor, a [[NonPoweredCostumedHero costumed superhero]], to fight back against street crime and eventually hunt down "Captain Industry". Advertised as a comedy, but [[NeverTrustATrailer was largely a drama]].
!! This film contains examples of:
* ApatheticCitizens - Everybody except Arthur. Apathy is a theme in the film, and even during crazy and dangerous situations, the characters, including cops and criminals, seem relatively unfazed.
* BeeBeeGun - Wasp Wasp Jar
* BlackDudeDiesFirst - The one well-dressed henchman [[spoiler: who was actually an undercover cop.]]
* CheapCostume - Complete with a D-insignia made out of [[DuctTapeForEverything Duct Tape]].
* CorruptCorporateExecutive - The elusive "Captain Industry".
* TheDanza: Subverted. Kat Dennings plays Kat Debrofkowitz, but Kat Dennings is Katherine Litwack, while the character's name is Katerina.
* DuctTapeForEverything - Defendor's costume involves [[http://gointothemovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/defendor_woodyharrelson2-500x267.jpg quite a bit of it.]]
* GroinAttack - Dooney, with a gun.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold - Arthur believes this of Kat, however much she tries to prove him wrong.
* HowWeGotHere - Most of the story is presented this way, with Arthur retelling his efforts to a psychiatrist.
* ImmuneToBullets - Subverted and then sadly, averted.
* MoodWhiplash - And how.
* NoMereWindmill: The protagonist appears to be a lunatic going up against an imaginary supervillain called "Captain Industry". Defendor may or may not actually believe this, but in either case the "Captains of Industry" is actually a metaphor for the very real threat of druglords - the very villains that Defendor has been fighting all along.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure - Captain Fairbanks, Dr. Park.
* TheDulcineaEffect - Essentially justified, given the way Arthur's mind works.
* ToBeLawfulOrGood - Or both.
* TrailersAlwaysLie - The trailers make it seem as if the movie is a super-hero comedy, when it's actually a drama.
* VigilanteMan: Averted. Defendor may try to beat up the bad guys and throw jars of wasps at them, he never actually tries to kill anyone.
* WindmillCrusader: Played with, and ''maybe'' [[NoMereWindmill averted]].
