"Private Benjamin" seems coarse, sluggish and interminable as a comedy scenario, but the profoundly depressing aspect of it is that Goldie Hawn appears to be receding as a comedienne and emerging as a boss lady.

This is arguably although unfortunately Goldie Hawn's most memorable role.

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.

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.

Funny fish-out-of-water comedy with lots of sexual content.

Goldie Hawn gives a charming, Oscar-nominated performance in this lightly feminist service comedy.

[Hawn's] not so gifted that she can carry a heavy load of indifferent material on her own two little shoulders, without considerable sagging.
February 9, 2006
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.

Goldie Hawn at the height of her powers.

Mr. Zieff demonstrates great skill in keeping the gags aloft and in finding new ways by which to free the laughs trapped inside old routines about latrine duty, war games, forced marches and calisthenics.

Private Benjamin is a comic fairy tale with a delightful performance by Goldie Hawn.

Why do people like this movie? I don't get it,

May 29, 2003
Military mockery featuring Hawn as a spoiled princess in army boots. Private Benjamin deserves combat pay for its slaphappy fish-out-of-water premise...a real hoot-and-a-half
