Overall, I enjoyed the majority of this movie.

Adrian and Edward Garlick (Forest Whitaker)
To start, Robin Williams is a great actor and comedian. Watching him speak and change from one personality to the next was awesome and I could only wonder if he had improvised such scenes or had the lines memorized. In any case, the point is that he has such a flow in his speech.

However, the movie lacks a strong overarching plot and deals more in developing various relationships centered around William's character, a comedian and disc jockey named Adrian Cronauer.

Adrian and Tuan (Tung Thanh Tran)
Furthermore, the movie ends in an unexpected and lackluster way.

With that being said, I would recommend the movie to anyone who enjoys Robin Wiliiam's onscreen personality.

Instant Comments:
"I was thinking of something else."

Hahahaha. "Lieutenant Steve, Frenchie." + polka + "I think some apologies are in order."
"What about the silent masses who do?"
"Sir, in my heart I know I'm funny." What a piece of shit.
What a moment after he meets all those soldiers.

Lt. Steven Hauk (Bruno Kirby)
Damn, that Sergeant Major is such an asshole.
Justice (against the Sergeant).
One of the military patrol actors (John Marshall Jones) looked familiar. Looking through his filmography, I probably recognized him from his role as Floyd Henderson in television series Smart Guy starring Tahj Mowry.

Sgt. Major Dickerson (J.T. Walsh)
