Trivia

The Senate hearing room is actually the Houston City Council chambers, located on the second floor at the Houston City Hall building, 901 Bagby, in Houston, Texas. The council members names were digitally erased during filming at City Hall. A brief scene takes place in front of the Sam Houston statue at Hermann Park, which resembles part of Washington, D.C.

Goofs

The end credits state none of Frank Zappa's albums received a Parental Advisory sticker, when in fact "Jazz From Hell" (ironically a purely instrumental album) was tagged with a Parental Advisory warning by the distributor. See more »

Quotes

Frank Zappa: I'm told you may be one of the monkeys responsible for my record label's disgusting capitulation to an uptight bunch of Washington housewives.
Charlie Burner: Who is this?
Frank Zappa: My name is Frank Zappa and I'm coming for you, monkey boy.

History Made Fun!

I first saw "Warning Parentel Advisory" on VH1. And I must say I loved it!!! The cast was great and it had a great subject too. The movie tells on how Tipper Gore (yes that is Al's wife) and some of her Washington D.C. housewife friends stride to have labels put on records that have bad lyrics or porn. Well Charlie (Jason Priestly) opposes. So Frank Zappa, John Denver (it was 1985, so he was alive) and Dee Snyder from Twisted Sister all join to fight.
