Robin Williams plays a radio DJ stationed in the middle of Vietnam. He greets the war troops every day with the line "Good morning, Vietnam!" and then plays American music for them. A feel-good movie for music lovers and Robin Williams fans alike.

The review of this Movie prepared by Teddy
In 1965, A1C Adrian Cronauer, an Army disc jockey, is transferred from Crete to Saigon in order to bring some humor (and life) to Armed Forces Radio there. Using irreverent humor and rock and roll, he becomes wildly popular with the troops but gets in repeated hot water with his superior officers who feel he is insufficiently respectful of the Army. Off the air, he tries to meet Vietnamese girls. Increasingly, he learns more about the real war that never turns up in the news dispatches he is handed to read over the air. This 1987 movie was Williams' first major dramatic role, and he tore into it with gusto. Whitaker is likable as his nervous aide, and the normally pleasant Kirby plays a very unlikable Second Lieutenant.
