Outstanding love story. Gere and Winger have undeniable chemistry and Gossett shines in his Oscar winning role.

I recall viewing this film with Louis Gosset Jr. as an effective Sgt. and Gere was solid as well. Nothing noteworthy or special about this flick. If only the female parts were more interesting. As most of the reviews before this, An Officer and a Gentleman is a decent romantic movie that is watchable.

The actors, the setting, the depth and authenticity of this film were as powerful as ever. It was created and recreated from a real memoir of Naval Officer Training. It was reset in a wholly different world from Florida to Washington State but it was the people. the romance the realism of the feelings and conflicts of young people facing the world and each other that make it a grand operatic film. Scored with Rock and Roll and a famous Theme song, it is a movie about youth that speaks to all ages in both fantastic …
