A British investment broker inherits his uncle's chateau and vineyard in Provence, where he spent much of his childhood. He discovers a new laid-back lifestyle as he tries to renovate the estate to be sold.
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

The "training barracks" were actually riggers lofts on Camp Blanding (Florida). These were used to pack parachutes for airborne drops. See more »
When O'Neil exits the Hummer upon arriving at base, she closes the door behind her but the door does not latch shut. You can see it swinging back open just as the vehicle is leaving the cameras view. See more »
I had a grandfather who wanted to be a Navy man. He wanted to fire them big guns off them big-ass battleships. Navy says to him "No. You can only do one thing on a battleship, son. That's cook." And I'm not talking about a hundred years ago. I'm talking United States Navy, middle of World War II. You know the reason they gave him? The reason why they told my grandfather he couldn't fight for his country? "'Cause negroes can't see at night. Bad night vision."
Damn, man. That's unbelievable. ...

After reading through many of the reviews, I don't know what movie some people were watching, but clearly it wasn't the same one I saw.
This movie is horrible. The acting, primarily Moore's, is just terrible. The woman cannot act. Nice tits, but she just can't act. At no point did she come across as the actual character. Instead, it was spoiled Hollywood actress goes to the beach to play make-believe with the boys.
And that's what this movie ultimately is -- Hollywood make-believe. The training sequences are over the top. The politics -- over the top. The political correctness -- over the top. The combat scenes -- you guessed it, over the top. Your mission is to get in and get out without being detected. So what do you do? Why shoot off as many rounds and make as much noise as possible, of course. Oh G.I. Jane, you can be my wing man anytime.
The premise is good, but as soon as Hollywood gets a hold of it, we end up with Top Gun with tits.
What more is to be expected from commercial US films anymore? Not much I guess.
