Movie Info

Radio funny man Adrian Cronauer (Robin Williams) 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 (J.T. Walsh), 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 (Chintara Sukapatana), who shows him the horrors of war first-hand.

Audience Reviews for Good Morning, Vietnam

  • Apr 28, 2017
    Every once and a while there's a role that was made for a certain actor. This was, in my mind, Robin William's perfect fit. I am sure the movie would have been fine with some other actor, but this movie is defined by William's marvelous performance. This is a war dramedy, exploring some of the hardest moments humanity can create through the lens of comedy. This is a terribly difficult subject matter to navigate well in this medium. Robin William's manic, almost childlike, energy is the perfect fit for this movie. It is a showcase of a man who can face darkness with hope, energy and joy. I have the benefit, or burden perhaps, or writing this review after Mr. William's tragic death. It's so ominous how this movie was the man. A flash of when the medium of entertainment goes beyond its purpose. You can see it in every scene, a veneer of relentless positive energy as the world around them goes to hell. Good Morning Vietnam provides a wonderful excursion into the history of this war, with a rich emotional payoff in the end. The movie is really just a canvass for Robin William's to explore, and he takes advantage of every inch.

    Another film I have never seen in its entirety. Robin Williams is just superb and shows the world the comedic genius that he is. Happily this doesn't detract from a larger story about the morality of the Vietnam war.

    Robin Williams is the heart and soul of everything this film is, finding a perfect balance between his frantic comedy and weighted dramatics. If you're going to watch 'Good Morning Vietnam', you're going to watch it for Robin Williams and Robin Williams alone.

    Adrian Cronauer is on the air in the comedic drama Good Morning, Vietnam. Set in 1965 Saigon, the Army attempts to keep up troop morale by bringing in a maverick airman named Adrian Cronauer to DJ on the Armed Forces Radio, but before long Cronauer starts to butt heads with his commanders over what he can and cannot do on the airwaves. Robin Williams leads the cast and gives a tremendous performance. However, the script is rather aimless, as it sets up a lot of interesting issues and themes that never get explored. While Good Morning, Vietnam provides a unique perspective on the war, it doesn't really know where it wants to go with it.
