Richard Gere stars as Zack Mayo, a hardened, slightly rebellious loner who locked up his feelings and dared not get emotionally close to people. He had been hurt as a youth when his mother committed suicide and he went to live with his dad, who was a selfish womanizer and alcoholic. When Zack announced his acceptance into Naval candidacy school to become a pilot, his father did not give him accolades or support.Read more ›
This "chick flick" has a young Richard Gere playing a self seeking, ill-bred nobody who enlists in the Navy training corps under a strict and disciplined drill instructor(Louis Gossett, Jr. who gives a Oscar winning performance) who teaches him the fine line of courage, friendship and compassion toward his fellow man. And of course his hard work pays off by wooing the lovely Debra Winger where both of indulge into tendor passion.
This movie is oozing of sexiness and the commanding performances by Gere and Winger are all worth while. The film has enticing moments of drama, which are perceptive to the viewer. The timeless song UP WHERE WE BELONG may be kinda fruity to listen for a guy, but hey admit it! Some of you sing it in the shower I bet!
Anyway, AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMEN should be a perfect gift or viwing on Valentine's Day.
The movie itself is a masterpiece. One, who wasn't around (myself) during Vietnamese War, can become acquainted with more than just war itself. I always knew that Richard Gere is a big-shot in Hollywood. Watching this movie I realized that this movie must have been a contributor in making him what he's today.

I have many Richard Gere titles in my DVD library, it was nice to add one of his early ones. This movie is a classic love story before it was all about sex. Great moviePublished on Jan. 31 2013 by Lynn Gledhill
