An average movie

6 years ago at Jun 2 9:02
Honestly, I don't really like Goldie Hawn. By now, I have seen almost half of her movies and most of them were pretty average but, above all, she always portrays the same character over and over again and to makes it even worse, the typical Goldie Hawn character is always some kind of hysterical whining obnoxious chick who always gets on my nerves. Still, since I have an open mind, I was rather cu... read more

Description: Afer Judy Benjamin's husband dies on their wedding night, the ditzy Jewish American Princess decides to enlist in the army. Of course, she's been misled by an unscrupulous recruiter, and expects a tropical vacation and other niceties. Benjamin instantly receives a reality check during basic training, conducted by the snarling Capt. Doreen Lewis, who revels in cutting the spoiled snob down to size. But as Private Benjamin endures the rigors of the military, she gradually becomes transformed into a disciplined soldier -- and woman. After the surprise termination of her second marriage, a spoiled Jewish princess joins the Army. ... (more)

"Goldie Hawn as the rich kid whose newly married husband dies on their wedding night, leading her to join the army and finds that she has spent all her life being pushed around. Extremely likeable comedy which has a feminist touch, with Hawn at the top of her comic game and a top-notch support from Eileen Brennan as her drill sergeant. A little dated now but still an entertaining view."

"When: November 13th-14th First-Time Viewing: Yes. How: VHS from my collection. What'd I Think?: Clever film is mostly funny, but sadly fizzles out in the third act. My Rating: 8/10 Other Notes: NA."

"A recently widowed jewish princess is convinced to join the Army, hoping that it will be akin to a nice tropical getaway. And, of course, quickly finds out the reality of the situation. A soldering process that eventually will bring the delusional diva down to Earth & mold her into a better person. Private Benjamin is a movie that makes me wish that there was a law out there that take all of today's spoiled Paris-Hilton/Kardashian worshiping, Sex-In-The-City watching, entitlement-sensed fema"
