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.

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

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!

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!

I love this film; it's one of my favourite films. The father-daughter theme is very beautiful as well as the mother-daughter theme. It is amazing that she has two wonderful dads, and based on their personalities they both love her in different ways. Her stepdad is a classy commandant who says so much by saying so little. He is very reserved and formal while her biological dad is amazing in a goofy and adventurous way (they are both classy and amazing). Her mum is so wonderful and she truly cares for her daughter who is forced to go to a military school with her and her stepdad. She makes a new friend, learns the importance of teamwork, and distinguishes herself. She (Cadet Kelly) maintains her bond with her old- and new friend, which is fantastic. She was amazing as a cadet and she made me proud to be a female. The regional competitions were amazing! It's a funny film, and it's a wonderful family-oriented film. I highly recommend it to all.

Hillary Duff has been an asset not only to Disney Family Movies, but also her natural and comical acting. There is a grain of truth in humor and Hillary Duff displays this most positive capacity in her talent. Christy Carlson Romano has the same gifts and can act those qualities out in several roles. The real values of this DVD movie are from a Teenage Girl's point of view, how to progress towards adulthood through several personal and education matters the average Teenager must face. This Movie demonstrates the value of Junior ROTC military training, with the coed setting.
Resident Cadet Military Academies, as well as High School Jr. ROTC units have great value in the 21st Century for both Genders. This Disney movie is good family viewing. The title should not fool the view - both the male and female genders of all ages can view this movie and come away with several decent conclusions promoted with a very positive sense of humor.

A Kid's Review on August 27, 2005
Format: DVD
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
