G.I. Jane is a 1997 American action film directed by Ridley Scott, produced by Largo Entertainment, Scott Free Productions and Caravan Pictures, distributed by Hollywood Pictures and starring Demi Moore, Viggo Mortensen and Anne Bancroft. The film tells the fictional story of the first woman to undergo training in U.S. Navy Special Warfare Group.
It opened to mixed reviews with Moore's performance receiving criticism and winning her the Razzie Award for Worst Actress. Although it made moderate profits earning $97.1 million against its $50 million budget, it was considered a box office disappointment. Following the debacle of Striptease the year previously, the failure of G.I. Jane marked the end of Moore's career as a leading actress in Hollywood. Despite this, Moore, in her 2019 memoir Inside Out, called the film her proudest professional achievement. In recent years, the film has been seen as one of Moore's finest performances and is seen as a cult classic.
