At station WBN, the hits just keep on coming.
Screwball comedy and whodunit murder mystery set in the frenzied and murderous world of a 1939 radio station. On the night that the Chicago station goes live on the air, a mysterious voice interrupts, and a series of murders soon follows, each one described by the same sonorous phantom.
I just ripped the DVD, but seeing its puny letterboxed SD presentation made me cringe enough that I rented the HD version from iTunes — you can only get it as a download, since they never made a Blu-ray.
Brian Benben still isn't my favorite, and a lot of the slapstick falls flat for me, but there are so many great actors in this film, and such good editing. This was also the first film that had digital set extensions, so it's a bit of important computer graphic history, no matter how forgotten the movie itself seems to be.
Still, an awful lot of fun! Michael McKean and Christopher Lloyd, in particular, seem to be having a lot of fun, and it's infectious.

I'm really divided on this film because it has a great premise and set up, but something gets lost in the film's execution. It just got a little too wrapped up in being zany.
Mel Smith's directorial follow up to Tall Guy isn't as funny or as much fun as I remember it being. I could have sworn that when this came out I really enjoyed it.
But now, I just find the hectic pace to be shrill and tiring. The film thinks that characterization can be achieved by shouting, and there is a lack of substance to the whole affair.
An hour into the film I had lost all interest in what was happening, and just let the yelling, banging into doors, slapstick falls, and horrible one liners wash over me.
Some movies are left better as a memory.
Highly subjective list that hasn't much to do with quality. Thank God It's Friday isn't a great film, but I…
