      Alec B Maybe its too zany but I still don't get why this movie was so hated? The fact that they could maintain the consistently heightened energy is impressive. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/24 Full Review Audience Member Campy hilarious masterpiece. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun and fast. I like this movie, Clue was great and did not need a sequel to dim it's shine. Radioland is an emotional follow up to Clue. A crime happens and the suspects are funny. Also try "Murder by Death" I think of them as my Crime Comedy Trillogy. Understand that this movie came out in 1994, the graphics will look dated. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Truly underrated as a film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the most confusing movie I'd seen in my life. I watched Clue (1985) and it was good. Then I watched this. I only watched till halfway then I was brain-fried, not knowing what to think or feel. Murder mystery movie gone down the wrong path and crashed. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member George Lucas' vision is brought to life after years of development. With the help of Mel Smith's directory, "Radioland Murders" comes to life as a madcap whodunit comedy farce. The timing is slightly off the plot somewhat cheesy and camp, but it is a rather hilarious film and a wonderful love letter to the old radio programs.

It's all action and no character, all situation and no comedy. Rated: 1/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Sebastian Zavala Kahn Cinencuentro See it with low expectations, this is an uncomplicated film that's not as bad as it looks.
