Editorial Reviews

Private Benjamin/Protocol (DVD) (DBFE) (Multi-Title)

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!

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.

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.

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.

The movies are awesome! However, look at another seller and buy individually, because the quality on these give one the impression they were "copied & transferred", and very poorly I might add.

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.

Classic feel good movie that is more on target than Fox news. For a woman to admit complete ignorance of our political system, she outsmarted them all with how on point she was. Airhead or complete genius....
And although it may be an older movie, the game has not changed in decades. Bravo Goldie.

These two films are comedies that are timeless and that I wanted to include in my collection of movies. I am not one to purchase many comedies as I feel many of the storylines do not holdup overtime and keep me entertained with laughter. The performances of Goldie Hawn and the supporting cast members are what makes me see this movie at least once per year. The common link between these two films are the perspective of a young, less than worldly, single female trying to find herself in the military and to succeed in a position of responsibility without the tools that most of the people around her try to use to their advantage for advancement and recognition. Goldie does a good job of having the viewer see her project the funny side of how to handle a difficult situation and than in the end coming out on top.

If you prefer crush, kill, and destroy than this is not the film for you!
