Pearl Harbor is a classic tale of romance set during a war that complicates everything. It all starts when childhood friends Rafe and Danny become Army Air Corps pilots and meet Evelyn, a Navy nurse. Rafe falls head over heels and next thing you know Evelyn and Rafe are hooking up. Then Rafe volunteers to go fight in Britain and Evelyn and Danny get transferred to Pearl Harbor. While Rafe is off fighting everything gets completely whack and next thing you know everybody is in the middle of an air raid we now know as "Pearl Harbor." Written by
In the scene when Admiral Kimmel complains about transferring twelve destroyers to the Atlantic, the distinctive "mack" of a decommissioned Knox class frigate is clearly visible in the background. Another is visible in the background of the fight scene. The first ship of this class was not commissioned until 1975, and it was the only class of ship in the US Navy with this type of mack (combined mast and stack). See more »
That's what I want to come home to, that's what I want to have to think about and dream about. I wanna know that the best part of my life is still ahead of me.

Unusually, Pearl Harbor started without showing the opening Touchstone and Bruckheimer logos; they only showed up after the end credits. See more »
A really, really bad movie..The acting was awful the action was OK in places but historically inaccurate beyond belief... Plot inaccuracy: Ben Afflecs character has dyslexia so severe he can't read an eye chart- fair enough - he then writes a letter every day to his sweetheart! What must of those letters been like? Written in crayon? Plot inaccuracy- Kate Bekinsale sticks her fingers in a guys jugular to stop the bleeding--but seconds later in the corridor she is looking all lovely and clean!! The bit when Ben Afflec is with the RAF fighting the Battle of Britain in 1941?? Ummmm...The Battle of Britain ended in September 1940! The British actors playing his comrades really look like they want to be sick or cry when they read out some of the lines... I think in the far future Pearl Harbor will go down as a classic really bad cult classic but I think it maybe for the 100th anniversary of the actual attack!!!
