Storyline

Biff and Jeff, two American G.I.'s on furlough in Australia during The Second World War, are enjoying their time the way most soldiers on leave do. When they meet the beautiful Joyce, however, they both fall head over heels for her, and start competing for her attentions. As their R&R time begins to run out, the schemes they each come up with to win her affection and foil the other's plans to do the same become more and more outrageous. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Bill Bendix in drag?
16 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Are you kiddin'? "Jim Carrey style comedy"?......Sorry, but this film's funny, Jim Carrey isn't!

I've been familiar with Bendix and O'Keefe for some years. Bendix for comedy and O'Keefe for straight roles like The Fighting Seabees among others.

While it's no classic, this film does garner it's share of laughs....Though, as a military historian, I still scratch my head over that oddball cameo on the helmets.

Leonard Maltin gives it a **1/2, callin' it a "breezy comedy".........I guess that works.

I guess where I'm going here is the fact that for about 1/3 of the film Bendix and O'Keefe are in drag! I have to confess that their drag portrayals impress me more than those of Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis in the fabled "Some Like it Hot". For some odd reason they seem to revel in it on a Bugs Bunny level. You'd never figure a couple of macho tough guys like these to pull it off so well - would you?

Very funny film....Simple - but it works!
