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.

Straight ahead farce
12 October 1999 | by (Edmonton, Canada) – See all my reviews

My Oxford dictionary of current english describes a farce as "a low comedy with a ludicrously improbable plot" and that is exactly what Abroad With Two Yanks is. Director (and fellow Canadian) Allan Dwan is able to take a cliche setup to hilarious extremes with the help of gifted comedian William Bendix. Two Marines on shore leave in Australia go to great lengths to win the heart of Helen Walker. Along the way they impersonate showgirls, get chased by the MPs, and frame each as mentally ill. Silly but great fun for those who enjoy Jim Carrey-style comedy.
