Made-up Marines
5 June 2003 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

The crew crammed an amazing number of inaccuracies into just the first 10 minutes: (1) The Corps would not assign an enlisted woman to the base of her general father. (2) Even if the officers-club bartender were a Marine, he would not have been serving drinks in uniform. (3) The enlisted woman would not have been allowed in the officers club, even in civilian clothes. (4) The enlisted woman in civilian clothes would not have been allowed to drive the jeep. (5) There would have been range personnel, not just the two senior officers, at the target range. (6) Everybody at the target range would have been wearing ear protection.

This abysmal film highlights the need for military advisers. We know that movies are fictitious stories, but they must seem plausible to be enjoyable. This film's excessive number of inaccuracies rubs our noses in the fiction, spoiling our enjoyment. There was no reason to believe that filmmakers would devote any more effort to details of the story than to details of the Marine Corps, so there was no reason to watch much more of the film.

There's more entertainment in a couple of fortune cookies.
