Radioland Murders

I think that perhaps this film is a little bit underrated. Whereas many critics ended up completely panning it, I think it should have simply been considered to be "okay." The cast, at least, is good consisting of such notables as Ned Beatty, Michael McKean, Jeffrey Tambor, and Christopher Lloyd. The two stars, the unfamiliar Brian Benben and the usually mediocre Mary Stuart Masterson, are even quite entertaining. The story, created by George Lucas, is actually quite interesting about a radio station's maiden broadcast and some of its key personnel turn up murdered. The plot is vaguely a mess, but you'll be able to follow it if you pay good enough attention.
