Goofs

When he is in his screen mom's car, actor Shane Conrad's hair is parted on his left and the left side of his shirt buttons over the right side (at around 4 mins), but as he is watches her drive off (from 15:10 to 15:25), the frames are flipped with his hair parted on his right and the right side of his shirt buttoned over the left side. Later, both the part in his hair and the buttoning of his shirt switch back (at around 39 mins). See more »

I hadn't realized how stereotyped military school movies are
12 December 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

This is like every last one of them: gruff but good leader, good boys who take their place as leaders, bad boys who learn to better channel their energy, wimpy boys who find strength, jokers who get serious, enemies who become friends, war games between factions, girls who get respect, etc., etc., and on and on.... This one has all of them. The light scenes get a few laughs, the suspense scenes are mildly tense, and the touching scenes bring tears to your eyes (not really). All in all, if you have a choice between watching this movie and cleaning the bathroom, I recommend watching this.
