    My DB graduated from the Academy and he said it was terrible. That seemed to be the concensus with all of his friends too. Supposedly there's a scene about a student that dies and they say "oh, there goes another one" or something like. Most of the midshipmen that were students when that movie came out were pretty offended because the movie was pretty blatantly referring to someone that actually died at the academy. Also, it seems like there are more people than usual that die at the Academy (some suicides) so I think it just hit a nerve with the midshipmen.

    I liked it, but I don't know anything about the actual Annapolis...I mainly liked it because of James Franco, its worth watching it for him if nothing else!

    I loved it....I know nothing about the real academy either, but as a movie, it was very enjoyable. And James Fraanco is H-O-T lol

    My hubby graduated the academy too and refuses to watch it...he says the previews alone are ridiculous. I think it says something that it was going to be shot there, but after the Academy top dogs saw the script they changed their minds and the whole set had to be built for the movie. I was with him during his time at the academy and there were a few suicides while he went there, supposedly the movie just offends many.

    When it came out there was some message from the CNO about that movie. I can't remember what it was about but it caused a big stink.

    DH saw it on one of his late night watches he said it was stupid & very inaccurate.

    I liked it because James Franco was in it!! As for life at the Academy... I would never try to relate the two. But entertaining none the less!

    Ummmmmm yeah!
    May today there be peace within. May you trust your highest power that you are exactly where you are meant to be..
    May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you....allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance and to bask in the sun. It is there for each and everyone of you.-- St. Teresa
