An Officer and a Gentleman Reviews

January 26, 2006
Macho, materialistic, and pro-militarist, it's an objectionable little number made all the more insidious by the way Hackford pulls the strings and turns it into a heart-chilling weepie.
August 15, 2003
The evident, laudable earnesty of the performances can't disguise the overall thinness of the film.
| Original Score: 2/5
July 31, 2013
It is full of bang-on melodramatics and simple, romanticized characters with carefully supplied motivations.
July 31, 2013
Taylor Hackford's 1982 film is an awesomely, stiflingly professional piece of work, with a fleet, superficial visual style, perfectly placed climaxes, and a screenplay that doesn't waste a single character or situation.
July 31, 2013
Phenomenally successful at the time of its release, but increasingly dated-looking.

Not even the combined talents of Debra Winger and an Oscar-winning Louis Gossett Jr can turn this one into a great movie, but if you're in the mood for a wallow, it's perfect.

An Officer and a Gentleman is a 1980s version that doesn't tamper much with the formula, but it does revitalize it, thanks to the erotic teamwork of Richard Gere and Debra Winger.

So-so coming-of-age military flick; not for kids.

An Officer and a Gentleman is the best movie about love that I've seen in a long time. Maybe that's because it's not about "love" as a Hollywood concept, but about love as growth, as learning to accept other people for who and what they are.

An Officer and A Gentleman succeeds as both a magical love story and as a convincing portrait of one individual's passage into manhood.
