Is this film over yet?
5 October 2002 | by MattiasSee all my reviews

I can only recommend this to a die-hard Melanie Griffith fan. To anybody else who wants to see female recruits in basic training, go find Private Benjamin (1980) with Goldie Hawn instead. This is a rather boring account of a couple of young women doing seven weeks in an army camp. I've done basic training myself and it wasn't a holiday home like the one they seem to have in the US. Doing push-ups and practicing at a fire range, is that all? If you want a better account of army life, rent Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket (1987).
