“Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn’t we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? ‘Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we’d all be put out in K.P. ” – Adrian Cronauer
Number of Times Seen – No clue (Theater in 1987, cable, video, DVD and 2 Oct 2014)
Brief Synopsis – An Air Force DJ is transferred to Vietnam in 1965 and his on-air antics cause a lot of friction among the radio station personnel.
My Take on it – This is always a fun movie to watch because this was specifically tailored for Robin Williams’ kind of ad-libbed humor.
He apparently wrote all of his character’s jokes and they are always hilarious no matter how many times one watches this movie.
The plot is super thin but who cares because the point of seeing this is to laugh at Williams’ funny antics.
The music used in the movie to show the daily routines of the US soldiers is excellent especially Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World.
Here’s a clip of the song from the movie:
Bottom Line – Plot is a bit weak, but Williams performance makes you not care about that at all. Hilarious ad-libbed dialogue is perfect. Amazing soundtrack! Highly recommended!
