When Judy meets Col. Thornbush and his wife in the Jeep, she meets the "Thorndog," Scrapple in the back of the Jeep and shakes his paw. Later, after the Col. says "let's let this soldier get some chow, mother," he pulls away and Scrapple is nowhere to be seen. See more »
This film is about a unfortunate young lady whose husband dies on their wedding night. She copes with her sorrow by mistakenly enlisting in the United States army.
"Private Benjamin" is very funny! Even the film is already thirty years old, the jokes are timeless. The scene that Goldie Hawn explaining that she is sent to the wrong army is hilarious. Well, actually the whole section about her adjusting to the fact that Army life is not a holiday is hilarious. Even though I have seen similar story lines before, it is still hilarious. If only all the comedies stood the test of time like "Private Benjamin"!
