    Nothing new. And emotionally empty.

    Total pap, pure melodrama, swelling music, tear-jerking death, meager story.

    Radio is just the same as always:You will never learn anything about the story at all.

    Absolutely horrendous! African-americans are on the screen far too rarely to be subjected to an image such as the title character. There is NOTHING right in this movie. Gooding's performance is the worst seen in years.

    The Worst about Radio that it has the same old elements of a sports drama. It gets very boring and melodramatic from this. A BIG DISAPOINMENT FROM THIS MOVIE.

  1. The cast, which includes Alfre Woodard and Debra Winger, manages to give thoughtful performances that salvage the film's integrity.

    "Inspired by a true story" it may be, but inspired it's not.

    Anyone who already knows better than to taunt the disabled, or former Oscar winners, should probably give it a pass.
