Storyline

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 Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Robin makes the statement that Howard, "...wasn't old enough to be in Vietnam" and Howard replies, "no duh". The Vietnam War started in 1965 and ended in 1975. Howard was 18 years of age in 1972 which does make him old enough to be in the war. See more »

Don't really like the guy but love the movie.
6 May 2002 | by (Torrance, Ca) – See all my reviews

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.

9 out of 10
