Storyline

An outraged reverend buys a public access station that specializes in what he considers pornographic broadcasting (shows include "Conspiracy Of The Week" and "Eat Me" all on Channel 69) ran by his daughter and her friends. The teens seize the station, however and seek public support for their efforts. However, when no one seems to be paying attention they start an all nude broadcast that gets them national exposure.

14 November 2003 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

This is one of those gems of a film that seems to rise above the sum of its not so stellar parts.

Although the production values don't seem to be up the quality we would expect from the cast, everyone seems to be having fun and the commentary of the director appears to confirm this.

Why are they, and the viewer, having fun? Simply because by not taking itself too seriously, this movie manages to skewer everything in its path: The religious right, the over-righteous (and cantankerous) left, and the seemingly unconcerned middle, and even conspiracy theorists that see everyone as the enemy. (Didn't anyone catch the naked aerobics instructor bit as a Jane Fonda reference?).

Rather than re-summarize the plot, let me summarize the idea: Nobody has a lock on the "truth", only on their concept of it.

This is one of those films that if you want to check your brain at the door and sit back and be entertained, you will miss the whole point of the movie.
