Audience Reviews for Hellcats of the Navy

Not only is this Movie pretty Good, this is where the Future President & 1st Lady Reagan fell in Love.


actually a pretty decent war movie considering it's not even an hour and a half. neither the writing nor the acting is particularly A-quality, but the story is very engaging and the effects are pretty decent too. plus it's just fun to see the future first couple in their only on-screen pairing.

Ronaald Regan and Nancy does an unbelievable job actiing! Makes ANY Sailor PROUD of his envolement in being a sailor or veteran sailor of the United States Navy!!!!!
