One of the greatest comedy features I've ever seen!, 17 July 2006
Author: darkjedib from Bulgaria

Radioland Murders is one of the greatest comedy features I've ever seen! The gags are hilarious, the cast is absolutely brilliant, what can I say more? Just watch this movie and ENJOY :) Radioland Murders have unbelievable "rhythmic" vision, editing and plot line. I can't believe that Radioland Murders is so underestimate movie?!? I was very happy and proud when I've found it on Amazon on a unreasonable low price? Whatever, Radioland Murders is one of my 'all time favourites' and I recommend it to everyone who love great comedy movies. And it's not just comedy. It's a unique masterpiece depicts the daily ground of early radiostations.
