Good Morning, Vietnam

Radio funny man Adrian Cronauer is sent to Vietnam to bring a little comedy back into the lives of the soldiers. After setting up shop, Cronauer delights the G.I.s but shocks his superior officer, Sergeant Major Dickerson, with his irreverent take on the war. While Dickerson attempts to censor Cronauer’s broadcasts, Cronauer pursues a relationship with a Vietnamese girl named Trinh, who shows him the horrors of war first-hand.

Movie Reviews:

  • r96sk: Good, if a little underwhelming.

    Robin Williams (Adrian) is in strong form, while it’s amusing to see a less experienced Forest Whitaker (Edward) in a rather dorky role. ‘Good Morning, Vietnam’ all makes for satisfactory viewing thanks to Mr. Williams’ humour, even if I didn’t have a great deal of interest in the plot et al.
