Lesson of kindness permeates inspiring true story.

Christianity Today

Despite the fine efforts of Harris and Gooding, Jr., Radio nearly drowns in James Horner's overbearingly sentimental music.

Awful from start to finish.

Shadows on the Wall

The screenwriter seems obsessed with introducing dramatic conflict, which feels both strained and convenient.

Boulder Weekly

Tune in for another formulaic feel-good story that will warm your heart and chill your mind.

Feigns compassion for the mentally challenged, but treats Radio as a pet, a toy, a prop.

Film Snobs

As the principal says, "I'm not sure we're trying to help someone here, or whether you're using him as a glorified mascot." Exactly.

this puts Cuba back into the Oscar race again, he's charming and wonderful -- although he plays a slow guy, which is surefire Oscar fodder

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

This is the first time in 16 years I made additions to a movie review after I read other critics' reviews. I'm doing this not to change my stance, but to defend it.

Underneath the sugary sweet external coating of Radio is a cynical and pandering piece of hypocrisy.

Creative Loafing

Gooding is never allowed to play a three-dimensional character but rather ... human currency to be handed around whenever a character needs his or her consciousness raised.

| Original Score: 2/4

Feel-good themes and fine performances from Cuba Gooding, Jr., and Ed Harris make Radio a nice pre-holiday film.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Like its title character, Radio broadcasts at a low, pleasant frequency.

Harris puts in a believable and focused performance.

Nick Rogers
State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

In his best role since Jerry Maguire, Cuba Gooding Jr. delivers a mannered performance performance where other actors have opted for tics and exaggerated shouting.

Movie Habit

It's a nice story, and it does feel good, but it's too formulaic and syrupy

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

If this movie was a tree in Vermont, it'd have a tap driven into it and be sporting a bucket to catch the sap.

Film Threat

A film many people may be tempted to laugh off as button pushing feel-good fluff. Before doing so, they might want to ask themselves just what it is they find so funny about a little peace, love and understanding.

Alexis Mersel
Premiere Magazine

Radio features Gooding, Jr. in a performance more akin to Justin Bartha in Gigli than Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man.

Unlike most sports movies, it celebrates humanity and avoids clichés.
