Critical Consensus: Annapolis and Momma Disappoint, While Nanny Casts an Innocuous Spell
Annapolis, the renowned naval military school, is an institution steeped in history; unfortunately, the movie can lay claim to that as well. Starring James Franco as a new recruit who needs to set his priorities straight, the movie's shopworn story and clich�s will remind viewers of "Rocky," "Top Gun," and "An Officer and a Gentleman," movies "Annapolis" can't favorably stand against. Currently at 10% on the Tomatometer, the best encouragement we can give "Annapolis" is better luck tomorrow.

Adapted into the 1964 film "Topkapi," "Light of Day" will act as inspiration to "The Topkapi Affair," a rendition in which Mr. Brosnan will reprise his role from "The Thomas Crown Affair." (Got all that?)
