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

The movie showing in the theater where Howard goes to view the premiere with the B-movie actress is called "Die Watching". Actress Melanie Good, who plays the B-movie actress, starred in a movie of that name in 1993 (Die Watching (1993)). See more »
Howard is attempting to give a woman an orgasm over the phone. He is speaking to her on the phone and at the same time she is listening to the show on the radio. There is a time delay of several seconds before the show is broadcast over the air. Being on the phone and listening at the same time would create feedback and would not allow the conversation to continue as portrayed. See more »
[on why Howard is playing himself in college instead of someone younger]
I know I seem a little too old to be in College. But for this movie you've gotta suspend disbelief.

Since I'm a Finn everything I know about Howard Stern I've learned from this film which is quite a shame, actually. I still have absolutely no troubles to understand what works and what doesn't and this movie most definitely works. Howard Stern works. "Private parts" is pretty much a terrific film. I've been watching it all over and over again and it's always entertaining, witty, extremely funny and amusing and it contains some of the best music in the world from Jimi Hendrix to The Ramones, Deep Purple to Ted Nugent and AC/DC to Ozzy Osbourne. I highly recommend this one and I have to remind you don't forget to watch the end credits too.
