He is a Navy brat who has a bad attitude problem. GySgt Foley is there to train and evaluate him and will clearly find Zack wanting. Zack meets Paula, a girl who has little beyond family and must decide what it is he wants to do with his life.
Plot: Zack Mayo is an aloof, taciturn man who aspires to be a navy pilot. Once he arrives at training camp for his 13-week officer’s course, Mayo runs afoul of abrasive, no-nonsense drill Sergeant Emil Foley. Mayo is an excellent cadet, but a little cold around the heart, so Foley rides him mercilessly, sensing that the young man would be prime officer material if he weren’t so self-involved. Zack’s affair with a working girl is likewise compromised by his unwillingness to give of himself.

This has to be Richard Gere’s best movie and the one movie I felt he deserved an Oscar nomination for. I read once that his role of Zach Mayo was first offered to John Denver. It is impossible to think of anyone else in the role which is one indication of how good Gere was. Lou Gossett, Jr. steals the show and gets a deserved Oscar as Gunnery Sergeant Foley. Debra Winger is also delectable as Paula, Zach’s working class girlfriend. I had read that Winger had a real problem doing the nude scenes with Gere and felt very uncomfortable being undressed in front of the camera. Supposedly the scene in which she is crying while making love to Zach isn’t because she’s feeling passion, it is because she is feeling humiliated. The movie also had to snip out a couple of seconds of Winger flexing her hips a bit too much during a bed scene. Still one of the steamiest bed scenes in film history. The most riveting moment of the movie is when Foley is going to kick Zach out of the program and Gere frantically and desperately screams “DON’T YOU DO THAT! I AIN’T GOT NOWHERE ELSE TO GO!” All of Zach’s arrogance is drained out of him and he is just a desperate kid begging for the only chance he’ll ever have. Powerful moment. In the end, Zach gains maturity. Would you want to fly into combat with Zach Mayo or with Tom Cruise’s Maverick in “Top Gun”? Zach Mayo, hands down.
A tour de force drama of multilevel impact. Realism, Romance, Comedy combine in a masterful even classic movie. movie
I was amazed to see the low ratings on this recent classic movie by Taylor Hackford. It brought forward young actors (Gere, Winger, Keith, Caruso) and older ones- Lou Gossett Jr.- with truly outstanding performances in an initially unknown film. What a treat to see it again. 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 and dramatic terms. It has atmosphere remarkably authentic without the cooperation of the Navy. It is of its time – the 1980’s yet is still meaningful in 2001. The story, directing and acting are fully outstanding. A must see for a classic movie fan!
