The lively but somehow slightly distasteful The Americanization of Emily stars James Garner as a WWII naval officer who happens to be a craven coward. While his comrades sail off to their deaths, Garner makes himself scarce, generally hiding out in the London flat of his lothario navy buddy James Coburn. Garner falls in love with virtuous war Actors: James Garner. The Americanization of Emily is a highly entertaining movie, a good romance with excellent work from attractive and vivacious stars Andrews, Garner and Coburn. The chatter is bright and the humor is non-stop, so average viewers may be surprised when Chayefsky's dialogue begins toppling sacred cows right and left.

Michael Whitty; 1/24/16; This was the first film for Julie Andrews and she was. The Americanization of Emily is not content to stop at anti-war. It moves on and on, sometimes so quick it may be a little jarring at first or seem a little preachy, and maybe it is, but, for all it's flaws (the love song is eerily similar to Spartacus's love theme), this film could easily enter a top ten list.
