An Officer and a Gentleman deserves a 21-gun salute, maybe 42. Rarely does a film come along with so many finely-drawn characters to care about. Full Review

Chicago Reader
An awesomely, stiflingly professional piece of work, with a fleet, superficial visual style, perfectly placed climaxes, and a screenplay (by Douglas Day Stewart) that doesn't waste a single character or situation - everything is functional, and nothing but functional. Full Review
Janet Maslin
The New York Times
Undeniably, there's an element of corniness to this. But that doesn't keep An Officer and a Gentleman from being a first-rate movie - a beautifully acted, thoroughly involving romance. Full Review

An Officer and a Gentleman has so many echoes that it never finds its own voice. [29 Jul 1982] Full Review
Richard Schickel
The result is a Big Mac of a movie, junk food that somehow reaches the chortling soul. Full Review
