John Candy worked so hard trying to make something of this turgid script, but it was a waste of his time.

A low budget rewrite, that is slow in spots.

An enjoyable bit of comedy fluff 7/10

The problem is that the soap opera is fake and the only compelling character is Candy.

Many people on IMDB say this movie is boring and that there is no laughs.

It's Hollywood schmaltz but rather enjoyable and good for silly giggles.

An enjoyable premise and pulled off really well in spots, Delirious is a fun film that spoofs soap's (similar to the TV show Soap)by allowing a soap writer played by John Candy to dream that he is in the soap opera he writes for.

All in all, enjoyable.

Not great, but worth watching.

If you are looking for a film that is enjoyable and fairly pleasing this one has a good feel to it.

Its not the best movie by any means, but greatly above standard and really enjoyable.

I guess that "Delirious" was mostly one of John Candy's innocuously silly placeholders in between his really great roles, but it's still a fairly entertaining one.

John Candy is as engaging and as superbly comic as ever in this little gem.

Deliriously Boring .

It was enjoyable and fun to watch.

Worth watching late night.

And how many times did they have to run the same boring riff about soap opera plots twists?
