Good Morning, Vietnam proved that Robin Williams could act and be hilariously funny in the same film.

From the start, the film bowls you over with excitement and for those who can latch on, it's a nonstop ride.

Levinson serio-comedy about Vietnam is first and foremost a star vehicle for comedian Robin Williams, who gives a manic, highly-charged performance as the real-life dj Adrian Cronauer in the early years of the War.

Good Morning Vietnam remains one of my favorite films about the Vietnam war because of its comedic take and ability to slip into real drama when needed.

Offering only hackneyed insights into the war, the film makes for stodgy drama. But Williams' manic monologues behind the mike are worth anybody's money.

If you haven't seen this one in a while, definitely consider picking it up again. I think it's a better film today than it was 18 years ago.

When Williams is on, the movie can be fairly funny; when he's not, it's too somber for its own good.

Make no mistake about it: Mr. Williams's performance, though it's full of uproarious comedy, is the work of an accomplished actor. ''Good Morning, Vietnam'' is one man's tour de force.

It hardly delivers on the promise of giving us the pure, undiluted Williams -- Williams at his best. What's more, it's not even close to being his best movie. It's not even close to being good.
