From the obviously fake shipyard to the repeated violations of what most of us recognize as the 'Code' of the Academy, to the absurd casting of people who couldn't physically hack the Academy's physical requirements, Annapolis fails.
The United States Navy rejected the producer's request to film on the Annapolis grounds. Since they were able to see story deficiencies that Disney could not, the studio may want to consider sub-contracting the Navy to write script coverage.
There's a good movie to be made about a townie who tests his mettle against the local elites. Plenty of films exploiting this time-honored premise tend to push the right audience buttons. But the Annapolis script is less a script than a checklist.
The only impressive thing about it is the monotony and thoroughness with which it replicates cliches from older, better movies and hammers them into pop alloy to an up-with-me beat beat beat of its musical score.
