Trivia

By the filming of this movie, Dee Snider was the only one of the three musicians who testified before Congress that was still alive to play himself in the film. John Denver had died in a plane crash in 1997, and Frank Zappa died in 1993 of prostate cancer. Their parts were both played by actors, while Snider played his own part. See more »

Goofs

Tipper Gore says she was dancing with her kids to Prince's "Let's Go Crazy", and comments on the lyrics of the next song, "Darling Nikki". Both songs appear on the soundtrack to Purple Rain, but the songs are tracks 1 and 5; they are not consecutive. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the final credits, the movie cuts back and forth between the video for the Twisted Sister song "We're Not Gonna Take It" and shots of the movie's cast and crew dancing and singing along with the song. See more »

Wonderful refresher course on The PMRC For Those who Forgotten
21 April 2002 | by (Norco, Ca) – See all my reviews

After just watching this VH1 Movie that rocked, I must say that It was pretty good. In Fact It's the best movie that VH1 produced...of course that's not saing much. Of course there are some set backs. Frank Zappa is Portrayed as this Guru and the actor that played him was not very good and the congressional hearings could have been a little longer (The transcripts had some great questions after All the prepared speeches between the Witnesses and the seneate comittee) But this is a really fine movie for what it is.
