* BrokenBase: Viewers can't decide if Ann Bancroft's performance is too hammy and over-the-top, or effective enough for the character she's playing.

* VindicatedByHistory: The film was met with lukewarm reception when it was released (though it was ''not'' a BoxOfficeBomb - grossing a respectable $90 million worldwide) and Demi Moore won a Razzie Award for it. At the time she was still reeling from the backlash of ''{{Film/Striptease}}'' and a badly received adaptation of ''Literature/TheScarletLetter'' so she had developed a sizeable {{Hatedom}}. This has levelled off in recent years, and many regard this as one of the finest performances of Demi Moore's career.

** Urgayle [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beating the ever-loving shit out of Jordan]] in front of the rest of the trainees, and her promptly telling him to 'suck her dick' is pretty memorable, too.

** And this is usually one of the main reasons given when the subject of women in combat roles is proposed for the U.S. military. Not necessarily that women wouldn't be able to keep up, but that their presence would disrupt the normal functioning of a unit, in that male soldiers would instinctively go out of their way to protect or save their female comrades instead of performing their role.

* HilariousInHindsight: A ''double case'' of this happens in the Japanese dub, and with the same character, no less: ''Master Chief Urgayle'', since the movie was dubbed ''twice'' there:
** In the dubbed version for Fuji TV, he is voiced by Creator/MasashiEbara, who, a few years later, will end voicing [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Might Guy]], a martial arts mentor who is the complete ''opposite'' of him in every single way.

* BrokenBase: Viewers can't decide if Ann Bancroft's performance is too hammy and over-the-top, or effective enough for the character she's playing.
* IronWoobie: Everyone wants Jordan to fail and she has to endure all manner of punishment. But she takes it all in stride and just keeps going.
* ParanoiaFuel: The scene where some of the soldiers are taken prisoner - and their captors choose to torture Jordan because they know her comrades would [[WomenAreDelicate hate the sight of a woman being attacked]]. A disturbingly effective tactic that could easily be applied to real life.
* SignatureScene: Jordan shaving all her hair off is easily the most iconic moment in the film.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The gender equality anvil is hammered in very hard but it's still a good lesson. Equality means equality - and giving a woman the same treatment expected of a man.
* ValuesDissonance: At one point in the film, the press tries to discredit Jordan on trumped up charges that she is a lesbian and fraternising with women. This references the army's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy that existed until 2011 - which meant that gays in the military couldn't be discriminated against as long as they were closeted. If Jordan had been fraternising, she would have broken the law.
* ValuesResonance: The lesson of not giving females PositiveDiscrimination in the name of feminism is a lesson that's still relevant today.
* VindicatedByHistory: The film was met with lukewarm reception when it was released (though it was ''not'' a BoxOfficeBomb - grossing a respectable $90 million worldwide) and Demi Moore won a Razzie Award for it. At the time she was still reeling from the backlash of ''{{Film/Striptease}}'' and a badly received adaptation of ''Literature/TheScarletLetter'' so she had developed a sizeable {{Hatedom}}.
