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.

Funny, but quite forgettable
7 September 2003 | by (Premiere Video (Dallas, Tx)) – See all my reviews

As I'm sitting down to write this review, I'm trying to remember pieces from the movie. Little things that I liked or didn't, particularly funny moments, etc.. I watched it about 24 hours ago and already I've forgotten most of it. All I mean to say by this cute little anecdote is that the film is quite forgettable. I enjoyed myself during it, laughed quite a few times.perhaps more of a chuckle. Yeah, that's a perfect metaphor for this film, it's a chuckle. Just like a chuckle, you enjoy it while it lasts, then quickly forget it. William Bendix and Dennis O'Keefe made a great team, and Helen Walker was very good at being utterly confused, but overall, 'Abroad With Two Yanks' was nothing more than a one night stand . or a chuckle Rating: 21/40
