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

According to Howard Stern, he at first believed that he would be able to improvise throughout the movie, as he does on his radio show, and did not memorize his lines. Producer Ivan Reitman had to pull him aside and explain to him that he needed to learn his lines as scripted. See more »
Although the AC/DC concert was set in 1985, Phil Rudd was not yet a member of the band at that time, although he is shown in the scene. IN addition, he can be seen playing using Ahead-brand aluminum drumsticks. These sticks were not introduced until the mid-'90s. See more »
The average radio listener listens for eighteen minutes a day. The average Howard Stern fan listens for - are you ready for this? - an hour and twenty minutes.
How could this be?
Answer most commonly given: "I want to see what he'll say next."
All right, fine. But what about the people who hate Stern?
Good point. The average Stern hater listens for two and a half hours a day.
But... if they hate him, why do they listen?
Most common answer: "I want to see what he'll say next."

Private Parts went way beyond the call of duty. I went expecting only solid laughs. That is all I really was asking for. It delievered on all fronts: writing, directing, and acting were all top notch. It left me dumbstruck that a movie with such lowbrow humor could hand out a solid emotionally driven story at the same time. I feel this has much to do with the mix of Howard Stern's raunchy humor combined with Betty Thomas' female touch. A terrfic film.
