Throwback Thursday-Private Benjamin (1980)

When change is needed in life, sometimes life throws us the curve ball needed to make the necessary change.

In the 1980 film, Private Benjamin, Judy Benjamin (Goldie Hawn) has lived a sheltered and spoiled life. Then her husband dies on their wedding night and Judy decides to join the army. The first wake up call is the intensity of Capt. Doreen Lewis (Eileen Brennan). The army is not what she expected it to be. But that is only the beginning of the shakeup of Judy’s life.

What I enjoy about this movie is the message of change and growth. Both are not easy and sometimes painful, but in the end, the outcome is worth the journey.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
