Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)



Reviews and Comments

Good Morning, Vietnam was back in the good old days before Robin Williams' trademark comedy wasn't so overplayed and tiring. His dramatic work seems to just get better, but compare nearly any scene in this movie with any scene in Fathers' Day.

Good Morning, Vietnam is hilarious, and it's also a rather moving story. It overplays its hand in the final act, becoming increasingly improbable and uneven, but there's still a lot here to enjoy, and Robin Williams' focus and energy keep things afloat.
