The life of actress/comedienne Gilda Radner is presented largely through audio recordings of herself and through her handwritten notes, some read by fellow comedians/comediennes influenced by her work, some, like her, Saturday Night Live (1975) (SNL) alumnae. That life is told largely in chronological order. It tells of her growing up period in a relatively affluent family in Detroit, Michigan, and losing her father, who she considered her best friend at the time, when she was fourteen. The story moves to her not finishing college in the University of Michigan's drama program to pursue love - she easily falling in love with various men over the course of her life, most of those men professional colleagues - which led to her start in performing professionally on stage in a number of comedy troupes, where she seemed to be at home. Her professional success, even in those early days, can be largely attributed to she being likable no matter who she was portraying which connected her to the audience, and her willingness to do anything on stage to get the laugh if something as scripted wasn't working. Her reputation in this comedy work led to her being the first person cast on what would be the groundbreaking SNL. Despite the success, she felt much pressure, she hiding an eating disorder in order to maintain the Hollywood body image, which for her was especially prevalent in her mind in having battled weight issues as child. The difficult transition from SNL focuses on her meeting Gene Wilder on the set of Hanky Panky (1982), falling in love (despite already being married at the time) and getting married. Her story's final chapter is the roller coaster, especially in the emotional sense, in dealing with ovarian cancer, which would eventually take her life in 1989.

Gilda Radner, who has become one of the most well-known and respected members of the Canadian film industry, is interviewed for the documentary, "Gilda, Queen of the Jungle", which is about the life of the legendary, yet infamous, star of the stage and screen, who has made a career of portraying the villainous character Gilda Radner. The film is a fascinating look at the life of a woman who has made a name for herself in the film industry. The film shows her rise to fame, her struggle with her family, her struggle with fame, her struggle with the press, her struggle with the public, and her struggle with her career. It is a fascinating look at the life of a legend. The documentary also delves into the controversies surrounding the production of the film. It is interesting to see the film being criticized by the critics and the public alike. The film is very interesting, and worth watching.

This movie can't get better than it is, though it is actually a bit of a pain to watch because you have to keep thinking, "What will I do next? I know the whole time that I'm supposed to think, "I'll go out and find a cactus," but it's not like that at all. It's like a dream, it's like a movie, it's like a fantasy. A dream, it's like a dream. It's not real. It's really, really, really really boring. But it's really, really, really really fun to watch, because it's so, so bad. I don't want to say any more about this movie, because there's not really anything to tell about it. If you're really, really, really, really bored, watch this movie, because there's not really anything else to say.
