Having always wanted to be a disc-jockey, Howard Stern works his way painfully from radio at his 1970's college to a Detroit station. It is with a move to Washington that he hits on an outrageous off-the-wall style that catches audience attention. Despite his on-air blue talk, at home he is a loving husband. He needs all the support he can get when he joins NBC in New York and comes up against a very different vision of radio. Written by

My answer is "cock", and I wrote it really big, so I have a "big cock!"
I'm afraid you can't say "big cock" on the air. That's a no-no.
But I just said "pussy".
Yeah, she just said *pussy*!
Well, pussy's okay. It's the way you say it. "Big cock" coming out of your mouth is, just not good.
Wait a minute. I can't say "big cock", but you can say "big cock coming out of your mouth?"

The ratings that I see on Private Parts really do the movie an injustice. As of now I see the ratings are at 6.5, but I have to tell you that I'd give it a 9.
Stern is not GLORIFYING himself here. He's just telling a story as to how he got to where he is and in many cases criticizes himself. The movie is by no means egotistical which is what I TOTALLY expected to find. Instead it leads you through a tale of Poverty to Success.
Great Job Howard. I may not like you much, but you really pulled this one off.
