At about 36 minutes in, Recruit Johnson notes there are 30 recruits in the platoon. But each morning reveille, Recruit Valentine is last to report at "28". Further, preparing for the final exercise, First Sgt. Morley divides the platoon into "teams of five" and then appoints only four team leaders, leaving 10 recruits without leaders. See more »

Predictable popcorn movie
1 July 2008 | by bugzsiegel04See all my reviews

This role is not a stretch for Ms. Simpson..she plays a down on her luck movie star who joins the army after a rough night and a bad breakup. The first twenty minutes of the movie are painful but it picks up once our main character joins the army. Cheri Oteri really shines in the film and she has some of the funniest scenes in the film. Keiko Agena, formerly of the Gilmore Girls, is totally under utilized and her comic potential is still untapped. Overall, this is predictable comedy that seems like a bad remake of "Private Benjamin". In fact, if you want to see a funny film about a rich spoiled girl who joins the army you are better off with Goldie Hawn's classic 80's film than this cheesy flick.
