    Excellent lil' movie, kinda, sorta a take off of Born Yesterday with Judy Holiday and William Holden, a CLASSIC...this is relevant now to the American People and should be watched and understood that this is REAL Life Politics as USUAL and/or UNUSUAL.

    A witless Private Benjamin joins the state department.

    Silly but enjoyable Goldie Hawn vehicle about a cocktail waitress who foils an assassination attempt. Her charm leads the presidents' handlers to add her to their diplomatic corp, where he begins a 1980s twist on "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" with some touches of "Born Yesterday." Buck Henry wrote the script, which makes the comedy a bit sharper than you'd expect from a Goldie Hawn comedy. The film features a lot of familiar 80s character actors. My favorites were Amanda Bearse (in her film debut) and John Ratzenberger as "Security Guard on TV"and Al Leong as "Cook."

    Non-offensive. Unexciting. Unfunny. Sounds like the perfect fit for a film about the State Department in the Reagan era.

    Lackluster comedy, although the wacky political adventure suits the perfected 'dumbstruck' talents of Goldie Hawn.

    Typical 80s Goldie Hawn ditz. I can't imagine being so easy going but she does it perfectly.

    Easily Goldie Hawn's worst movie. Billed as a comedy its more a comical trainwreck. Spawned during Goldie's post-Private Benjamin 80s popularity spike, Protocol is a boring and simply awful mess.. No laughs, pointless story and just a bunch of boring old white guys blabbering politics and diplomacy while Goldie looks cute and tries to diffuse the situation with her charm...only she doesnt have any. Hence this movie's downfall. She is just not good enough of an actress to carry an entire film. Can you name any one else who was in this movie? I sure as hell cant. There's a reason why she was the designated eye candy on Laugh In. Nothing she ever uttered mattered or was relevant. Shes just supposed to sit and look cute like a hot mannequin, not carry a crap script on her shoulders. Hell, she can barely keep her head up there.
