Based on the story of Saigon DJ Adrian Cronauer, although Williams' portrayal is reportedly a bit more extroverted than the personality of Cronauer. Williams spins great comic moments that may have been scripted but likely were not as a man with no history and for whom everything is manic radio material. The character ad-libs, swoops, and swerves, finally accepting adult responsibility. Engaging all the way with an outstanding period soundtrack.

This 1987 comedy is about a disc jockey named Adrian Cronauer (Robin Williams) who is in Saigon during the Vietnam War. It is 1965 and his job working for the Armed Forces Radio Service is to entertain the troops and give them a little bit of laughter. Adrian brings them lots of humor, news updates and great rock n roll records that the higher ups don't like. His trade mark every morning as he hit the air waves was to shout goooooooooooood morning vietnam! One man named Sargerant Major Dickerson doesn't like him and when Adrian gets into a little bit of trouble sees to it that he gets discharged from the army for associating with the enemy. This is a great movie and Robin Williams is really funny.
