Great Movie

on 5/29/2012

Although similar to many other titles, this one still stands out among the best. Louis Gossett is very good as the drill instructor against Richard Gere's rebellious trainee. Both men and women should find something here they both like. Highly recommend to fans of military movies.

ReviewSource Variety
Review An Officer and a Gentleman deserves a 21-gun salute, maybe 42. Rarely does a film come along with so many finely-drawn characters to care about...Officer belongs to Louis Gossett Jr, who takes a near-cliche role of the tough, unrelenting drill instructor and makes him a sympathetic hero without ever softening a whit...Pic is a bit muddled, via flashback, in setting up Richard Gere's motives for going into the training. Suffice to say he did not enjoy a model childhood. On leave, Gere meets Debra Winger, one of the local girls laboring at a paper mill and hoping for a knight in naval officer's uniform to rescue her from a life of drudgery. It's another fetching little slut role for Winger and she makes the most of it...A secondary romance involves Gere's friend and fellow candidate (David Keith), who takes a tumble for Winger's friend (Lisa Blount), another slut but not so fetching.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review "An Officer and a Gentleman" is the best movie about love that I've seen in a long time. Maybe that's because it's not about "love" as a Hollywood concept, but about love as growth, as learning to accept other people for who and what they are. There's romance in this movie, all right, and some unusually erotic sex, but what makes the film so special is that the sex and everything else is presented within the context of its characters finding out who they are, what they stand for, and what they will not stand for...The movie's method is essentially to follow its characters through the thirteen weeks, watching them as they change and grow..."An Officer and a Gentleman" takes chances, takes the time to know and develop its characters, and by the time this movie's wonderful last scene comes along, we know exactly what's happening, and why, and it makes us very happy.

Brian Webster, Apollo Movie Guide It may be a guilty pleasure, but it's a pleasure all the same.
Emanuel Levy, Blue-collar fairy tale for adults...extremely old-fashioned yet utterly enjoyable movie...
Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice ...succeeds as both a magical love story and as a convincing portrait of one individual's passage into manhood.
