Goofs

All American flags on uniforms in this movie are incorrectly mounted. Regulations require that "The Union" (blue field with stars) must be to the left of the viewing person. A flag showing The Union to the right of the viewer is a signal for "distress". There are special patches for Left and Right arm application. The movie uses Left shoulder flags on right shoulders.

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.
