Reviews
Mine: Terrible dreck. A bad combination of the basic training military movie and a highly unprobable romance. Gossett is the best thing here. Gere and Winger are dreadful. Implausible ending and insipid soundtrack.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Two misfits seek direction in their dead-end lives--he by enrolling in Naval Officer Candidate School, she by trying to snag him as a husband. Four-letter words and steamy sex scenes can't camouflage a well-worn Hollywood formula script--with virtually every plot point telegraphed ahead of time! Made agreeable by an appealing cast, though even Gossett's Oscar-winning performance as a drill instructor is just a reprise of earlier work like Jack Webb's in THE D. I. Film's love song, ``Up Where We Belong,'' also won an Oscar.
