An unorthodox and irreverent DJ begins to shake up things when he is assigned to the U.S. Armed Services Radio station in Vietnam.
This movie was filmed in Thailand, not Vietnam. On the back cover of early copies of the film, street signs can be seen in Thai.
What will you do, sir? What will you do? What will you do with your time?
Adrian Cronauer: Oh, I don't know. There are plenty of things I can think of. Maybe go downtown and try to find a Vietnamese man named "Phil."
During one of Cronaur's broadcasts, one of his characters refers to the weather as 'crotch pot cooking'. The crock pot, that this line references, didn't exist under the name 'crock pot' until 1971, six years after the time frame of the movie.
