An Officer and a Gentleman is a cliched but skilled enough movie to make you forget about the hackneyed story & focus on the characters. The film, despite its nationalistic & conservative slant, is at its most interesting when it focuses on the romance & the class relations in the town between the officers & the town people. An entertaining film but it could've been something more if it dared to not play by the book.
Hey, this is a Top Gun class romantic drama. Above the Cruse control abomination of of a flick mentioned before, it does manage to present a whole bunch of relevant matters, believable actors for the roles and stays entertaining enough. Should you watch it, not necessarily; doing so probably won't hurt though.
Mis primeras chaquetas se las dedique a Debra Winger despues de ver (subrepticiamente) esta pelicula. Pendeja, como casi todas donde sale Richard Gere, pero el wey era el "sexsymbol" y esta era la pelicula de moda en ese momento. Chingona la rola de Joe Cooker. Fue de mis primeras compras piratas en Tepisur.
