Good, quippy dialogue can't make up for a fundamentally flawed script, even with Simon West's well paced direction to keep things moving along.

There's a line at which a movie stops being about something nasty and becomes one more example of the nastiness it's supposedly condemning.

The General's Daughter has the spit and polish of a military whodunit, but it's a confusing, meandering case to follow.
