An average movie

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

She has been transferred to NATO headquarters in Europe and (re)meets the Frenchman Henri Tremont. Judy and Henri decide to marry, but will they?

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 worshipping, Sex-In-The-City watching, entitlement-sensed f"

BradWesley123’s Movie Journal- April 2021 (35 movies items)

" HBO Max- 1hr. 49min. First Viewing It's got similar pacing problems to a glut of 70s-80s films (largely due to the technology at hand), and the story suffers a bit for it, but Private Benjamin is a funny, surprisingly deft dramedy with an exceptional lead performance from Goldie Hawn.
