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 »

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."

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.
