The liberals hate it (the movie, that is)

James Franco in Annapolis

The movie Annapolis is getting panned by liberal film critics by linking it to George W. Bush (everything is political, don't you know):
"On the contrary, Annapolis, like most Disney-fied films with military or sport themes produced during the presidential reign of George II, is a celebration of conformity and the subjugation of individual will to the greater good." —Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
(Hat tip to Hoorah the Blog.)

Hmmm, it's a feel-good cross between Rocky and An Officer and a Gentleman, highlighting one of the greatest service academies in the world and the values that make it and America great, in a time of war, and it has the liberal press suffocating in its own gag reflex. Sounds like a must-see to me!

Some mil-bloggers are nit-picking the film's inaccuracies, but hey, it's a movie, not a documentary. I'll post my review here. Feel free to leave your review in the comments.

Until then, Go Mids!
