Movie Review: Praybeyt Benjamin (2011)

Vice Ganda stars as Private Benjamin Santos VIII in Praybeyt Benjamin.

Drawing inspiration from the fish-out-of-water comedy Private Benjamin, the film follows the military misadventures of a gay man leading a troop of misfits . With a group that includes a tomboyish army freak, an obese over-eater, a coward, and a person who claims he can talk to ghosts, you can expect the comedy to be low-brow.

The film has already referenced to a sequel and I'm scared of the possibility of another inane comedy that does provides cheap laughs. You're better off watching any Filipino comedy made in the 1980's as this film uses the same formula.

Praybeyt Benjamin should get the boot if you ask me.

Rating: 2/5
