Big looking, expensive, production starring Richard Gere is hardly worth it.

A great period film, full of authenticity. A fine early performance by Gere.

Finely made John Schlesinger film is worth another look.

Audience Reviews for Yanks

Three American servicemen stationed in Britain carry on relationships with British women.
Essentially a melodrama, Yanks is unique only in its direction by John Schlesinger who follows his Sunday Bloody Sunday vein and focuses on a finely drawn character study. However, like Sunday Bloody Sunday too little happens and, unique to Yanks, the characters don't rise above stereotypes. One American is a womanizer, another a stern administrator, and the third a milquetoast romantic.
Lisa Eichhorn plays torn loyalties well, but the rest of the performances are not exceptionally noteworthy.
Overall, there isn't much to like about Yanks, a film that takes no risks with characters that have little charisma.
