Editorial Reviews

Goldie Hawn brings her charm and joy-buzzer appeal to two hilarious comedies. She's Judy Benjamin, make that Private Benjamin, who finds the U.S. Army doesn't quite offer the country-club atmosphere she expected. Oscar nominations went to Hawn (for 1980 Best Actress), costar Eileen Brennan (Supporting Actress) and Nancy Meyers, Charles Shyer and Harvey Miller (Original Screenplay). And ditzy cocktail waitress Sunny Davis (Hawn) finds that diplomatic immunity is not a vaccination as she brings uncommon sense to Washington and upends the rules of Protocol. Politics were never so much fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Protocol March 25, 2008
Format:DVD
Goldie Hawn portrays the delightful Sunny Davis in this quirky movie. Sunny is a cocktail waitress that always seems to be on intimate terms with Murphy. Anything that can usually does go wrong for her. When she sees a man with a gun, and thwarts his plans, it is revealed later that an assassination was going to take place. Sunny has saved the Emir, and in the process takes a bullet in the tush. She is turned into a media darling overnight. A grateful government gives her a job in the protocol office, but that is only what appears to be on the surface. The Emir has decided that he wants Sunny for his next wife, and thus a deal is struck. When Sunny discovers what her government has done on her behalf, Washington will never be the same. I enjoyed Goldie and Chris Sarandon. They have chemistry, and great comedic timing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed November 24, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've only watched Protocol and was disappointed in the quality. The film was too dark and had several glitches that nearly stopped the movie. My mistake may have been trying for a bargain and getting two movies instead of the one I really wanted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Private Benjamin and Protocol were both GREAT movies April 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Initially, (for those of us who grew up watching "Laugh-In")we never thought of Goldie Hawn as an "actress." However, she's demonstrated excellent acting talent in several of her movies, since "Laugh-In." "Private Benjamin" and "Protocol" do not disappoint in that area. Goldie's performances are top-notch in both. Both of these movies were well written [although "Private Benjamin" DID end abruptly with a few major issues NOT completely resolved].

My biggest disappointment is that both movies come only in "Full Screen." I cannot understand why Warner Brothers has not yet released Wide Screen versions, by now. One would think that both would sell really well in Wide Screen.

3.0 out of 5 stars GOLDIE BEING GOLDIE... August 5, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This is an offbeat little film that showcases the ever adorable Goldie Hawn, who plays a cocktail waitress thrust into the spotlight when she singlehandedly thwarts an assassination attempt on a visiting Emir from a strategically placed, Middle Eastern country. Having taken a bullet in the butt during her heroic fight with the gunman, she becomes a media darling overnight, as she is a breath of fresh air. The media and the public gobble her up, while the White House staff, aware of her effect on the public, hire her to work in the protocul office. Unbeknownst to her, she is being used politically, and has been underestimated by the staff with whom she works. When she becomes aware of what is going on, she turns Washington on its head, and, in the process, completely changes her life. Good things do happen to good people. A cute movie, with a good cast, though not that many laughs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Light Hearted - but makes you think! May 24, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I thought this movie was very funny. It pokes fun at the world of politics with a light irreverance that doesn't bite. I teach High School English and one of the hardesth things to do is get the students interested in what is going on in the world around them. This movie will make you think about the things that you take for granted. I highly reccomend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance - you'll like it! May 3, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
If you want deep emotion and political insight, this is not the movie for you. This is not Wag the Dog, and who cares if it is nothing like the Monica Lewinksy affair? It is fun, with lots of detail and hidden jokes, and entertaining for at least an hour and a half. Goldie shines in her usual way, and you'll be surprised at some of the cameos and supporting characters. Although it has been much maligned, it is still worth a look and a few laughs.

5.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC GOLDIE! September 6, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Goldie accidently saves a middle-eastern politician from a gunshot,and is suddenly thrusted into the media,becomes a media darling,and hired on by the U.S. Govt.,who try to "sell" her(without her knowledge) to the man she helped save,to become one of his MANY wives,in exchange for some Nuclear bombs. Not only does this film take shots at the stupidity of the media,and the shaddy dealings of our own Government, it is an abosolutly funny funny movie! Goldie is HILLARIOUS as Sunny Davis,cocktail waitress,turned media hero. One of my all-time fave Goldie Hawn movies,this one's a definate keeper! HIGHLY RECCOMeNDED

I think this movie should be mandatory viewing in schools. It starts with a lot of fluff, but in the end, Goldie Hawns character says some very profound statements. Read more
