Private Benjamin is a 1980 comedy with Goldie Hawn (for a new generation, she’s the mother of Kate Hudson) in the title role of Judy Benjamin, a good natured, affluent, newly widowed young woman who—on a flyer—joins the Army after speaking to a quota driven recruiter. Rough and tumble boot camp is definitely not what she was promised. So, taking a reasonable tone, she tells Captain Lewis, her drill instructor:

“I think they sent me to the wrong place. See, I did join the Army, but I joined a different Army. I joined the one with the condos and the private rooms. …To be truthful with you, I can’t sleep in a room with twenty strangers … and I mean look at this place. The Army couldn’t afford drapes. I’ll be up at the crack of dawn here!” (A colleague’s favorite scene is when Benjamin is marching in the rain letting loose with, “I want to go to lunch!”)
