Life in the Army will never be the same after an unforgettable wake up call from Academy Awards® winner Robin Williams (Best Supporting Actor, Good Will Hunting, 1997) in this smash hit comedy. Williams delivers a tour-de-force performance in the role critics agree he was born to play – legendary armed forces radio deejay Adrian Cronauer. Deployed to Saigon to host a morning radio show during the Vietnam War, Cronauer’s sidesplitting antics and rapid-fire wit make him an instant hit with the troops in the field but soon get him in hot water with his by-the-book superiors. An unforgettable supporting cast and a red-hot soundtrack of ‘60s hits make this the quintessential Robin Williams comedy.

Robin Williams at his scatological finest.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that, compared to the sexual and violent content of some of today's PG-13 films, this one is tame. But its themes of relative morality are definitely adult in nature. The violence (infrequent but sudden) serves specific purposes. A bar brawl is spurred by some GIs' racist behavior; an explosion at the same bar (which kills two people) sets up storylines that ultimately question the premise of the Vietnam War, as well as the freedom of information allowed at that time. Foul language occurs mostly in the form of jokes.
