Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

After they crew is tossed overboard during an exercise, McCool (Morris Chestnut) begins to tell O'Neil (Demi Moore) a story about his grandfather who had joined the Navy during World War II just to be able to fire guns off of battleships. He says that his grandfather was only given the position of a cook. The entirety of the story is referenced to a true historical moment during the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 when an African-American sailor served as a cook on board the USS California. Using his training, he was able to shoot down several attack planes and received a medal for his service. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the first course it is stated "12 minutes or less" is what is need to pass that part of the training. Yet Cortez finishes in 13:10 and Jordan finishes after him. Even with a 30 second deduction for all females in training, still doesn't put her under the 12 minutes she needs to pass the course. See more »

Top Gun With Tits
14 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

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.
