Rating: 4/5 -- Funny fish-out-of-water comedy with lots of sexual content. Full Review

Premiere
Apr 1, 2004
Another depressing example of the big-screen gag-string sitcom, it turns exclusively on a plot that grew from a concept that developed from an idea that somebody should never have had - Goldie Hawn joins the army. Full Review

...An old friend brought up to date....[Hawn] is totally charming...

Rating: 2/4 -- The pampered Hawn's reactions to rigorous training exercises, her interactions with her superiors, and a not-quite-successful love affair with French physician Armand Assante while on duty in Europe inspire plenty of laughs. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- It's basically a one-joke effort, but that joke has Hawn throwing herself with great gusto into the role of a bewildered spoilt brat who comes good and her Oscar-nominated performance has huge charm. Full Review

Within the limitations of the genre, this story of private Benjamin ends up being entertaining at times. It doesn't add anything new, but it brings to us a new and special performance from the brilliant actress Goldie Hawn. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Product Description:

After the surprise termination of her second marriage, a spoiled Jewish princess joins the Army. Thanks to the doublecrossing recruiter who will do anything to enlist her, she expects her hitch to be a vacation. It's... not.

Plot Synopsis:

After 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.
