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

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.

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.

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

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.

Acomedy about life in the military that has more on its mind than just laughs.

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.
