Rebel/Loner Hero: James Franco is Jake Huard, a dockworker's kid who dreams of being a Navy Officer and makes it to the U.S. Naval Academy.
LOL Training Montage Moment: During a rowdy party before reporting to Annapolis, Jake's friends tell him they've hired him a prostitute, Ali (Jordana Brewster). Only, Ali isn't a hooker (surprise!), she's an upperclassman and his drill instructor (surprise again!)—which puts Jake in the cross hairs of Cole (Tyrese Gibson), the head instructor, ex-Marine and (extra surprise!) champion boxer.
Is the Big Game Against Harvard? No. Cole and Jake meet in sweaty, shirtless Brigade boxing final. We just blacked out again.
