When a crusading chairperson of the military budget committee pressures the would be Navy secretary to begin full gender integration of the service, he offers the chance for a test case for a female trainee in the US Navy's elite SEAL/C.R.T. selection program. LT. Jordan O'Neill is given the assignment, but no one expects her to succeed in an inhumanly punishing regime that has a standard 60% dropout rate for men. However, O'Neill is determined to prove everyone wrong. Written by

During the writing of their essays, the CRT candidates are suffering greatly from sleep deprivation, hunger and physical exhaustion, meanwhile, CMC Urgayle is in an adjoining office reading the J.M. Coetzee novel, "Dusklands;" a story about psychological warfare during the Vietnam War. See more »
In Urgayle's first scene, he gets in the face of the man who laughs. From one camera angle, the bill of Urgayle's hat is above the man's, and from the other it is below. See more »
Demi Moore's character in the movie was selected for the SEALs because of her looks. That was a bad start and the movie went down from there. The plot was totally unbelievable. The will to make it in a tough military unit is not enough. This movie did not convince me of a woman's physical ability to perform the types of tasks required.
Trying to pretend that women and men are basically the same is an insult to everyone's intelligence. The differences between the sexes are what makes life interesting.
