Audience Reviews for Roar of the Press


Mostly entertaining B-movie that is clearly inspired by the success of HIS GIRL FRIDAY. Actors are competent, if not better. Dialogue may not be memorable, but it doesn't drag down the movie. The plot moves at a crisp pace. Not a bad way to spend a little more than an hour.

Robert Cotterman
