Storyline

Ben Black is the host of a popular television program that aims to shock and outrage its audience, which continues to tune in even though most of them think they are 'above it.' But Ben's cruel persona as TV host often continues after the cameras are turned off and his ex-lover / current producer, his co-workers, and his lover are often at the receiving end of his barbs.

Quotes

Ben Black: I had a nervous breakdown when I was thirteen. Thought I was possessed by the Devil. I'd just seen 'The Exorcist', so there was a lot of vomiting and speaking in tongues.

Good!

When I see movie like this and I think how many Van Damme movies I've seen... it sort of makes me think I'm not as smart as I thought.

:)

Anyway, when you've had enough of the typical american movie, see this.
