Beta males in movies…

Compare the guys from 40 year old Virgin, Something about Mary, Night at the Museaum- to say Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates), James Bond, or John McLain (Die Hard).

Betas may be protagonists, but they’ll never be heros. Every movie, that I can remember, that has a beta as a protagonist has been a comedy; beta males are good for laughing at- no one actually admires them.
