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

90% of this movie is fictitious. After many script changes to make it more entertaining for a film, hardly anything depicts the genuine truth of the events that take place in this film. Everything is loosely based on something but did not actually occur the way this film tells it. More than 25 rewrites were done of the script before it went into production. See more »
When Howard and Allison pull into the gas station and he discusses the fact that he often holds back what he is really thinking while on the air, you can clearly see the car's rear-view mirror folded upwards and out of the way in order to avoid blocking the faces during the conversation. See more »
The average radio listener listens for eighteen minutes. The average Howard Stern fan listens for - are you ready for this? - an hour and twenty minutes.
How can that be?
Answer most commonly given? "I want to see what he'll say next."
Okay, 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.
