A Funny Fun Mother and Son Movie , Very Very Enjoyable,
8 June 2001 | by (Milwaukee,Wis.) – See all my reviews

A great movie starring Barbara Eden and her real life son , Matthew Ansara. Barbara as Brenda Anderson, the overprotective mom tries to keep her son out of the airforce and wants him to go to college. But in the process everything goes astray and instead Brenda (Barbara Eden) winds up in the airforce. Things get very funny as she alienates everyone in sight by getting them on KP for her screwups. In one hilarious scene she appears on the battleground wearing short shorts because she misunderstood the term BDU (battle dress uniform) to mean BVD's ,which of course, she told her sergeant, she was no way going to wear. In the end she is forced to do a jump from the plane to set an example for her son and winds up encouraging him to stay in. I strongly suspect, from the reality of the scenes that they were done with the cooperation of the airforce. Barbara as usual makes everything hilarious with her antics. A great fun movie.
