Jake Huard, from a shipbuilders family, promised his dying mother he'd make it to Annapolis Naval Academy. Thanks to tenaciously bugging a Congressman he's selected, despite dubious grades. Once inside Jake soon proves sub-standard academically. Constantly challenged to his limits, repeatedly made the 'over-cocky' reason for the entire class to suffer, Jake nearly quits, but after facing his utterly unsupportive father's gloating returns just in time. Stubborn Jake finds support with mates as well as Ali, his lover-to-be, and a discipline he may excel in: the 'brigade' boxing tournament, open to all ranks. Written by
At least one exterior scene taking place in Washington, DC was actually filmed on the grounds of Girard College in Philadelphia, founded in 1848. See more »
At the end of the movie Jake kisses Ali while both of them are in uniform. This is a flagrant violation of the UCMJ (uniform Code of Military Justice) and at a minimum would have them both up at a Captain's Mast. See more »

19 clips from Annapolis preview are not in the movie!
I saw a preview for Annapolis last Friday and Saturday night I took my husband. It was not the movie I thought it was going to be, but wasn't sure why in my mind I was mislead, until tonight. This evening while watching Flightplan at home, I saw a preview for Annapolis and oh my!!!!! We counted 19 scenes in the preview that are not in the movie! The preview shows an aircraft carrier being blown up and the movie never even shows a boat in the water!!!! It shows all kinds of scenes with fighter planes and there is never a scene in the movie with a plane in it at all!!!! The preview makes it out to be an action combat movie, which is just not the case at all. I want my money back for false advertising!!!!
