Jake Huard, from a shipbuilders family, promised his dying mother he'ld make it to Anapolis Naval Academy. Thanks to tenaciously bugging a Congressman, he's selected despite dubious grades. Once inside, Jake soon proves sub-standard academically. Constantly challenged to his limits, repeatedly made the 'over-cocky' reason for the entire class to suffer, Jake nearly quits, but after facing his utterly un-supportive father's gloating returns just in time. Stubborn Jake finds support withs mates as well as Senor Ali, his lover-to-be, and a discipline he may excel in: the 'brigade' boxing tournament, open to all ranks. Written by

During the I-Day formation, Donnie Wahlberg (Lt Cmdr Burton) has a mustache as he sits on the stand.

What is the latitude of Annapolis?
Who were the first three naval officers to hold the rank as admirals?
How long have you been in the Navy?

My mother was a mermaid, my father was King Neptune. Every bone in my body is a spar. And when I spits, I spits tar. I's hard. I is, I am, I are.

I couldn't tell if the dog passed gas or it was this movie.
Besides CONGO this has to be one of THE worst films I've ever seen. That includes all the crappy ones I watched as a kid. You know the ones I'm talking about...the ones where the jungle wenches have unbelievably perky breasts under their "animal skin" dresses or the "creatures" whose heads are obviously made out of Styrofoam, foam rubber and glittery paint.
This was FLASHDANCE meets AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN. It was so similar to the latter I was waiting for Debra Winger, Richard Gere or Lou Gossett Jr to make a cameo. Given David Keith's recent box office jewels i.e. PATH OF DESTRUCTION, I would have expected him more than anyone else.
