Our Score
Good Morning, Vietnam meets The Incredible Journey in this amiable family comedy that has more than its fair share of surprisingly adult-orientated jokes. Director Simon Wincer's harmless allegory stars Danny Glover and Ray Liotta as leaders of a group of Green Beret soldiers who promise to deliver an elephant to a Vietnamese village. The problems they face in order to carry out their pledge lead to lots of fun escapades and a winning climax with the pachyderm parachuting from a plane.


Five Green Berets stationed in Vietnam grudgingly undertake a bizarre mission - to help their native hosts by transporting a fully-grown elephant through 200 miles of rough jungle terrain. They soon hit upon a novel way of delivering the beast, deciding to load it into a plane, and then parachute it to its destination. Comedy, starring Danny Glover, Ray Liotta, Denis Leary and Doug E Doug.
