When you watch this movie you begin to realise the extent of RW's talents. His comedic energy and timing is remarkable, and more so because his ability to draw you into his character with that skill is something that so many actors don't have. He will make you laugh and cry, within one short rollercoaster ride, in one scene. That mesmerising talent clearly came at a price. He was nominated for the Oscar for his portrayal of Adrian Cronhaur and like us doubtless many feel he should have won. He had drawn on experience of entertaining servicemen something he did repeatedly throughout his career when there were wars and places he had been told not to risk going to. A testament to his soul. A film which was probably met with resistance by the great American powers that be, Good Morning Vietnam will forever be a true classic, and a terrific reminder of war, what goes on behind it, and the efforts of those who want to make a difference.

This film is a wonderful example of how to deal with a factual and depressing subject and make it totally watchable. Sure, the violence is covered, quite rightly, but it is cleverly interspersed with Robin Williams' quite brilliant repartie as the maverick DJ brought in to lift the troops' flagging morale. His character change once the violence touches him personally is wonderful to behold. The film never forgets the importance and seriousness of its topic, but there are moments of light relief. Personally I feel this is where it scores over the unending depression of films like Apocalypse Now and The Deer Hunter. In short a wonderful film, beautifully acted and brilliantly paced.

This film isn't 5 stars, it's 10 stars!!

I remember the first time I watched this with my mum and the whole way through, we laughed our heads off!

Robin is again absolutely hilarious and brings a brilliant performance to the film. He has to be the reason the film went to box-office success because I can't imagine another actor playing the role of Cronauer as well as Robin did!

Not only is this one of my favourite films, it's one of the films I mention when I get asked what's your favourite films?

So seriously buy this DVD now - it's worth it!

This is the story of armed forces radio DJ Adrian Cronauer (played by Williams) who is sent to Saigon in 1965 during the Vietnam war to re-vitalize a forces radio service that's broadcast style is desperately stuck in the past. It is loosely based on a real story of the impact Cronauer has on the radio station, its management and the troops.

The film takes its name from Cronauer's euphoric, over -the-top welcome call to his radio slot and is really a vehicle for William's unique ability to improvise with surreal monologues and dialogues delivered at breakneck speed by his character on air. There are some poignant moments (eg the bombing of a bar used by forces personnel or several of Cronauer's interactions with a native Vietnamese brother and sister) but these are relatively isolated and only hint at a pathos William's would go on to convey more convincingly in his later film roles. This aside, the acting, script and story are lightweight.

William's plays himself largely so any fan of his will love this film. The film could be retitled "Mork goes to Vietnam "(Mork from the TV series Mork and Mindy featuring Williams first major role). Some of his improvisations work and some don't but they are always engaging. Unfortunately, after (what becomes a catchphrase) "Good Mornng Vietnam", the most memorable line is also delivered by Williams in the first seconds of Cronauer's debut broadcast:

"It's 06.00 hours...what does the "o" stand for?......Oh my God it's early!"

This is not quite as good as I remember it from the cinema at the time. Some of the conflicts with authority seem clichéd and the attitude to the Vietnamese borders on patronising. But, what is just as good as I recall, and must be the real reason for buying the film, is Robin Williams hilarious stream of consciousness broadcasting to the troops. So it is a bit like the Marx Brothers on film; sitting through the plot to get at the comedy (but the music in this is great)

I saw this film when it was first released at the cinema, what a film, powerful, enigmatic, well acted, great support acting, Robin Williams best film of his career, I left the cinema on a high and trying to emulate the catch phrase of Adrian kronaur , funny, sad, moody, tragic. I challenge any one not to love this film, If you watch this and not like it, then all i can say is "have a word with your self".

I don't think Robin Williams even rehearsed half of his lines for this. It's the single greatest example of improvised comedy known to man. I was laughing all the way through and I've seen it countless times. He will be sadly missed
