    A great film with a great cast.

    I found this film to be most interesting. I was surprised to find out that this movie was based on a true story. I had no idea that the Pentagon spent so much money on defense systems during the Reagan Administration. This movie had a great cast that gave convincing and effective performances. I also enjoyed the film's humorous moments. This is a really great film and I personally enjoyed it.
