"Learning The Drills" Behind-The-Scenes Featurette With Hilary Duff And Christy Carlson Romano

Editorial Reviews

Presented by the producers of Private Benjamin, Cadet Kelly is the story of a young teenage girl's dilemma when her life of free-spirited creativity and unmasked familial love collides with a world of extreme military discipline and reserve. Kelly Collins, played by Hilary Duff, is a happy student at New York Middle School of the Arts whose whole world changes dramatically when her mother marries an army captain who's just been promoted to Commandant at George Washington Military Academy. Thrust into a rigid world of obedience that frowns upon creativity and individuality, Kelly manages to make one close friend, but clashes with Cadet Captain Stone (Christy Carlson Romano) and is eventually court-martialed. Sentenced to maintain the equipment for the drill team, Kelly's disdain for the team suddenly evaporates when she glimpses the beauty and creativity involved in their precise maneuvers. Eventually, Kelly experiences significant personal growth, finds an outlet for her creativity, and begins to forge an important connection with her new stepfather. DVD extras include commentary by Christy Carlson Romano and Aimee Garcia, a "learning the drills" segment with Hilary Duff and Christy Carlson Romano, a "drill team challenge" interactive game that will have viewers doing everything from lacing up a boot to deciphering military time, and a DVD-ROM party planner. (Ages 6 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Hilary Duff stars as Kelly Collins, an artistic, fashion-minded teen who's forced to go from flashy fab to olive drab at her new stepdad's military academy in this delightful comedy. As the clumsiest, most clueless recruit ever to botch basic training, Kelly seems to be fighting an uphill battle to fit in. But it's all-out war when she butts heads with Cadet Captain Stone (Christy Carlson Romano), a tough-as-nails, by the book "commanding officer" determined to break her spirit. See how once-carefree Kelly keeps it together amidst endless rules and regulations to win Stone's respect, and still manages to leave her own unique mark on the school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Birthday! March 4, 2005
Cadet Kelly was such a good movie! It is based around a girl named Kelly Collins (Hilary Duff.) Her life is flipped around when her step-father, Sir (Gary Cole), wants her to go to military school. Though she does not want to go, leaving Manhatten, she does attend the school. Kelly then meets Jennifer Stone (Christy Carlson Romano), who is a strict or "mean" kind of person. Both don't get along, but in the end.. everything works out! I AM HAPPY TO SEE THIS MOVIE RELEASED ON DVD ON MY BIRTHDAY! Yeah! (Get it for me, mom and dad or friends!!)I WAS SO SAD A YEAR OR SO AGO THAT OTHER MOVIES FROM DISNEY WERE RELEASED BUT NOT CADET KELLY! THANK YOU!!! happy b-day for me.. soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cadet Kelly May 22, 2005
Kelly is a prissy, artistic teen who can also be a little bit of a smart aleck. When her mother re-marries and breaks the news to Kelly - they're moving and she's going to be attending military school at their new location - she is miserble. But could she be the one to turn military school into a place of fun, fashion, and friends? Most likely not. Will she be able to handle the fact that her stepdad is the HEAD of the school? She's not sure. And finally, will she be able to turn her stepdad into a "father" before the new baby arrives? As Kelly often says, she has "to do everything".

This is an entertaining, feel-good sort of movie. It's definately not worthy of an Academy Award or anything like that, but I like to watch it sometimes whenever it's on the Disney Channel. Christy Carlson Romano does a great job as the mean "Captain Stone", as does Hilary as the funky, fun "Kelly". Overall, this movie is simple, but it's still good. I recommend it to Hilary Duff and Christy Carlson Romano fans, as well as to girls who love a good tween movie. But, I ALSO recommend that (unless you don't have cable) you watch it on the Disney Channel, because then you can view it for free!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie! January 30, 2006
By Sheila
I love this movie. I remember watching this movie on t.v. ...and I loved it. I am so happy that they have finally released this movie on DVD. Be sure to check out Hilary's other movies like:

-A Cinderella Story (this is one of my fav movies)

-Raise Your Voice (awww, what a cute movie..I LOVE this movie)

-The Perfect Man (this movie is really good!)

...her acting is really good in "Cadet Kelly" and in all of her other movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Hilarys Best.... August 27, 2005
A Kid's Review
I just purchased this movie and I love it so much. I first watched it on the Disney Channel in 2002. But I remeber Hilary from Caper meets Wendy(t.v. movie), Lizzie McGuire(series). Now she is one of Hollywoods sweethearts. She also stars in The Lizzie McGuire movie, A Cinderella Story, Raise Your Voice, and The Perfect Man. Plus Material Girls playing opposite Haylie Duff(older sister). This dvd has cool extras and teen sensation Christy Carlson Romano from Kim Possible(series), Even Stevens(series) and her movies Kim Possible movie So The Drama(t.v. movie), The Even Stevens Movie(t.v. movie) all Disney Channel originals and her newest Campus Confidential(ABC Family Origianl movie)t.v. movie. Highly Reccommend this to add to your dvd collection.

Also these Disney Channel Original Movies-

Get A Clue(Lindsay Lohan)10 stars

Halloweentown trilorgy's(Kimberly J. Brown)10 stars

The Even Stevens Movie(Shia LaBeouf)10 stars

Kim Possible movie: So The Drama(Christy Carlson Romano)10 stars

Miracle In Lane 2(Frankie Muniz)10 stars

The Cheetah Girls(Raven S'ymone)10stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have! June 28, 2005
A Kid's Review
Cadet Kelly starring Disney Channel stars: Hilary Duff [Lizzie McGuire series] & Christy Carlson Ramono [voice of Kim Possible, and Even Stevens] team up for laughs and tears in Cadet Kelly.

The life of cool, artistically inclined 14-year-old Kelly Collins (Hilary Duff) is turned upside down when she is uprooted from Manhattan and whisked off to the campus of George Washington Military School in upstate New York. Leaving her beloved city, school, and best friend. The move was instigated by Sir (Gary Cole), a retired general and the new husband of Kelly's mother. Hoping to impress her stepfather, Kelly enlists in the school, where her freewheeling eccentricities immediately run afoul of her hard-hearted, 17-year-old squad leader, Jennifer Stone (Christy Carlson Romano). Though Kelly does her best, the pressure brought to bear upon her by military protocol is enough to have her contemplating desertion -- and even her growing fondness for upper classman, Brad (Shawn Ashmore), may not be enough to bring her back. Hilary's character has a slight "cheerleader-ish" attitude and an extreme love for art which seems to get her into enough trouble, without worrying about her father, and becoming an older sister. Hilary finally does find a place to fit in at the military school, but can she pull of being herself and not getting into any kind of trouble?

This movie is great for kids, and to watch with the family. It's hilarious, touching, tearful, exciting, and something you can really enjoy. The Duo-Disney stars have really outdone themselves in this film. Buy it and regret nothing!

Also if you enjoyed this film you would hate to miss:

Hilary Duff's "A Cinderella Story"

and Christy Carlson Ramono's "Even Stevens Movie"
