An excellent dramedy, I've always loved PRIVATE BENJAMIN. Equal parts funny and serious, it walks the tightrope better than most films I've seen. PRIVATE BENJAMIN tells the story of a spoiled Jewish American "princess" who, after suffering grief and heartbreak, is convinced that the Army is the place for her because of a wonderful recruitment pamphlet displaying condos and yachts in Europe. When she arrives at basic training, she swiftly learns otherwise. She slowly transforms from Judy Benjamin to Private Benjamin, learning the hard way and showing her worth. Goldie Hawn isn't what I'd label as stupendous at her craft, but she is fantastic as Judy, spot on with her performance; if anything marks her as a great actress, this is it. It's fantastic and utterly watchable every time. I highly recommend PRIVATE BENJAMIN.

Good clean 80's fun. Goldie Hawn in her prime rollicking through adventures in the Army and in love. 80's classic.

"What, the Army couldn't afford drapes? I mean, I'll be up at the crack of dawn here!"
