A very unusual movie dealing with the war in Vietnam, it is probably some of Robin William's best comedy - absolutely hilarious. The dramatic elements are also very effective and the antagonist Sgt Major Dickerson is the essential evil manipulator. Great movie.
Absolute classic. Never dates. Robin Williams does soem classic movies such as this and "Dead Peots Society".
Robin Williams, what can I say..... this guy makes this movie ! Excellent acting and excellent story line, though, some portions were cut out from the original movie I saw at the picture show years ago. It is disappointing that this form of editing happens to movies sold in Australia. That aside, Good Morning Vietnam is totally brilliant !.... I give it 8 out of 5 !!
The original Adrian Cronauer interview on the DVD is also a great insight to the character. What a ripper of a movie ! The Bonus stuff is excellent !
Forrest Whitaker is clever as always......the tow Bookends (censor 1 and 2) (Dan & Don Stanton, are themselves amusing ! Bruno Kirby's character Lt. Steven Hauk is a total nut-job, a guy on his own ego-trip, but he is integral to the plot.
Not especially funny although it tries very hard. More about the stupidity of war and those involved in it. Watching this, what comes to mind is that 45 years later the Americans still haven't understood the futility of it all.
This movie doesn't really focus on the war, even though it set in the middle of one. It focuses on a controversial radio DJ who entertains the troops with his morning and afternoon broadcasts and how he forms relationships/friendships with locals and fellow troops. It's funny how they have 2 censors who have to censor the news before he reads it on air.
good old movie..would watch again
Very funny but still allows you to ponder.
one of Robin Williams best..
Golden Oldie! Robin Williams is fantastic in this movie. The humour that comes out of his mouth on the spur of the moment is unbelievable. This is not a war movie per se, but rather it focuses on the antics of a radio DJ for the army while in Saigon.
Another well done movie by Robin Williams. All of Robins humor and still a thoughtful storyline. Great movie!!
To me this is a classic, one of Robin Williams funniest.
william sis hilarious but also shows his meaningful side in this war ravaged country. very entertaining and has aged well.
Robin Williams Brilliant, an eye opener. Taken right behind the scenes, shown what really goes on and how the top brass behave, think and react.
I thoroughly enjoyed the music used throughout the movie. It brought back lots of memories
It is what it is, if you have not seen it hire it.
Robin Williams best movie
Tremendously funny!!Amazed to learn that some of the DJ scenes were ad-lib and not scripted!!Robin Williams--what a talent!
Robyn Williams at his best! As an Army radio announcer, he provides the wakeup call for the troops as well as for his stodgy superiors, who don't like his brand of humour. The troops love him as does a beautiful Vietnamese girl. It's the girl's brother that provides the surprise twist to the plot. This is a classic.
I remember enjoying this the first time i saw it when it first came out. Now seems quite dated and politically incorrect.
CLASSIC. Robin Williams at his best.
