A very amusing and ...By HD (148 reviews) from West Midlands , 24 Sep 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]A very amusing and heart warming film from Woody Allen. I have to say that I?m very bias when it comes to this mans work. This is an easygoing movie that gives an insight into the life of an everyday American family in the 40?s.
The start alone is a gem! The family home is broken into at night while they?re out. The phone rings, and one of the burglars answers it only to find that he?s live on air in a musical quiz. He gets all the questions right and wins the major star prize! Next day much to the bewilderment of the family a lorry arrives full of household furniture and appliances. Good solid entertainment. 9 - 10

Not one of Woody's bestBy a customer from Sandhurst , 28 Jun 2010Yes, it was quite amusing and I watched it to the end, but at the end I was a bit disappointed. Perhaps as a committed fan I was expecting too much, but however hard I tried to give him the benefit of my doubts I still wound up wanting more.
Wistful Wireless WonderBy born2run (82 reviews) from Isles of Scilly , 11 Aug 2009Episodic nostalgia in a style that Woody Allen has made his own. In fact, that could be read as a kind of criticism because so many of his films are a series of brilliant cameos with just the loosest of threads holding the whole together. But that's his style and like Marmite, you either hate it or love it. Personally I think it is brilliant although I feel Radio Days would be best loved by viewers of a 'certain age' as much of the music and sentiments would be totally alien to someone brought up on Nirvana and Rage Against the Machine.
radio daysBy a customer from Kirriemuir , 21 Apr 2009a classic film that never seems to age.
a joy to watch. a wonderful walk down memory lane.
Radio DaysBy a customer from Oxford , 26 Jul 2008There are some very funny scenes in this movie but it drags on a bit. There's not enough in the theme of listening to the radio to make a full-length movie. Instead, Woody could have wrapped it into another movie.
The sound track is fab: tico tico, the south american way and la cumparista, begin the beguine etc. 3/5
Classic WoodyBy a customer from Lincoln, England , 22 Apr 2008Brilliant. Haven't seen this film for years since my old video copy died! A real gem! Will have to buy my own copy again!
