Academy Award-winner Goldie Hawn ("The First Wives Club," "Bird on a Wire") delivers the "best comic performance by an American woman in years" (New York Magazine) in this delightful story about a Jewish American Princess who, disappointed with life, impulsively joins the army and after a disastrous initiation, finds direction and self-esteem for the first time. Nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Actress, Screenplay and Supporting Actress for drill instructor and perfect Hawn foil Eileen Brennan ("White Palace," "The Last Picture Show"). Armand Assante ("The Mambo Kings") and Craig T. Nelson ("Coach") round out the hilarious all-star supporting cast!

Critics Consensus: Private Benjamin proves a potent showcase for its Oscar-nominated star, with Hawn making the most of a story that rests almost completely on her daffily irresistible charm.

16+ COMMON SENSE
