If the ending doesn't draw at least a couple tears from your eye, especially these days, then you're heartless. Bah.
If you like this sort of movie (as do I), you will definitely enjoy this particular example of it. Very well done.
My only regret is that they didn't show enough of the training. Having gone through OCS myself, it's such an overwhelming, life-changing experience (though I don't know about the WACs' OCS) that it was a bit of a cheat that we didn't get to see how it changed the girls, only that it did. I suspect the writer was more concerned about the dynamic between the three main characters, rather than the interaction between each of them and the demands of officer candidate school.
