2.0 out of 5 stars Williams, funny?, 18 May 2009
By 
This review is from: Good Morning, Vietnam [DVD] [1988] (DVD)
I long ago came to the conclusion that there is a conspiracy afoot with regards to Robin Williams. This film, I believe, was meant to be a showcase for his amazing comic talents, and if talking extremely quickly in a scattergun manner is funny, then Williams is a genius. So, what's all this about a conspiracy? Well, I've heard many a time how hillarious Robin Williams is, and yet through stand-up, Mork and Mindy and in anything he attempts to be humorous in, I'm left entirely cold. I thought he was excellent in Awakenings and Good Will Hunting (not much need for funnies there), but mostly he has churned out tedious also-rans like Goodmorning Vietnam, and for the best part of twenty years his main staple has been wet-cheeked mawkish sentimentality (Patch Adams etc etc etc). Godnight Vienna (or Vietnam).
