I actually thought this was a decent movie
14 November 2005 | by orfrlf01973See all my reviews

I've seen this movie and thought it was alright. I don't believe it is one of my most favorite films but the casting was good and the plot was OK. There were unbelievable parts to it, sure, but this was not designed to be a comprehensive history of the military academy at West Point. That being said the look back to the lat seventies when women were allowed into the military academies are interesting for those of us who may not have been around to experience it for ourselves. Since the first time that I watched this movie (in my late teens) I have enjoyed it because it showed a side of life that many of us will never get to experience so even if some of it is not believable it does work.
