An Officer and a Gentleman has been remade so many times it's practically a military drill itself, one faithfully executed by this cornball drama about a legendary coast guard rescuer (Kevin Costner) and his cocksure trainee (Ashton Kutcher). Impossible tests of endurance: check. Grinding down of cadet's arrogance: check. Phony romance between cadet and sassy babe: check. Fatherly benediction, the newly minted hero bursting with pride: check. Boo-rah! Costner has the stoic routine down pat, and there are some spectacular action sequences of helicopter rescues on the high seas, but Kutcher is in way over his head. Andrew Davis (The Fugitive) directed; with John Heard, Clancy Brown, Neal McDonough, Dule Hill, and Melissa Sagemiller. PG-13, 139 min.
