    Wahh it's military propaganda!! Maverick & Rooster should've talked about how the U.S. escalated the Civil War in El Salvador!! How about a movie about HEALTHCARE pilots!!!

    Ok all that (not ~totally~ wrong) stuff aside, I, like everyone else, was shocked at how actually-good this was.

    This movie's a little tense, a little funny, a little sweet and endearing, a little chilly -- just non-stop entertaining and moving in little ways that didn't feel contrived or sweaty.…
