Reviews
Mine: Very funny and surprisingly touching film. Williams has never been better. I think that he needs a strong director to keep him in check. Here he has one. Nice supporting cast.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Williams is the whole show here, playing an Army disc jockey who turns Armed Forces radio inside out when he's brought to Saigon in 1965. His manic monologues are so uproarious that they carry the rest of the film, which has a weakly developed ``story'' and often irrelevant musical interludes. Apparently the real-life Adrian Cronauer, on whom story was based, wasn't nearly as funny or outrageous as Williams.

I was hesitant to watch this one; I thought "Robin Williams in a war film? It's bound for disaster." But it was great -- simply Williams going crazy when appropriate, but very somber when necessary.
