Jerry Springer stars as more or less himself, the host of a raunchy, controversial and popular Los Angeles talk show which features everyday people with problems and who frequently vent their problems on the air. A new group of guests are flown in for one show who include white trailer trash from Sarasota FL; Connie, whose current husband has cheated on her with her nymphomaniac teenage daughter, Angel, for which Connie has gotten revenge by having sex with Angel's fiance; and from Detroit, black trash Starletta, whose boyfriend, Damone, has slept with all of her girlfriends. Soon the paths of all of these parties cross which leads to more sex, arguments, physical violence, and Jerry sweating out just another day.
Legal stipulations prevented the production from using the name of Jerry Springer (1991) in the film. Hence, here it's called "The Jerry Show". See more »
The trailer park folks are supposed to live in Central Florida. (Jaime Pressly passes a Tampa sign, Willie mentions that he works at the Walmart in Lakeland, etc.) But when her stepfather bails her out, he does so at the Broward County jail (written in large letters on the side of the building). Broward County is almost exactly 200 miles south of Lakeland. See more »
Somebody could probably make a great documentary about the Jerry Springer Show, but this fictionalized version merely succeeds in draining anything authentic and interesting out of the trash-TV phenomenon. There are dozens of famously bad movies (e.g. "Manos: The Hands of Fate") that show more creativity and spirit than this dreary, witless waste of film.
Seriously, why not a documentary about the Jerry Springer Show, that would begin to answer some of the real questions like: Who are these people? What happens to their lives after they appear on this show? How did the mayor of Cincinatti find himself here?
One good line: During an "orientation" session for guests: "People, I can't emphasize this enough: NO WEAPONS!"
