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

You wanted to see me?
Yeah, you came late yesterday, you came late today. I don't need you. You're fired.

A leaked workprint version is available for sale on the internet which features deleted scenes, alternate takes, and different music. It also has a completely different voiceover narration by Howard Stern throughout. Major differences include:
John Stamos kneels and grabs "Fartman"'s behind recreating what 'Luke Perry' did in real life.
The montage of Howard in the streets of Washington, D.C. set to Van Halen's "You Really Got Me" is not included.
A longer version of the lesbian sex story in which they are both topless.
Howard, Robin, and Fred run from a mob of adoring fans.
The meeting at NBC Headquarters in which they discuss hiring Howard is not included.
Kim Chan's appearance as a waiter is not included.
The vignette with Gary and a donkey is not included.
During his victory rally, Howard encourages the crowd put up their middle fingers and yell "Screw NBC!"
Howard and the gang announce a segment called "Bestiality Dial-A-Date" which offends a group of elderly stockholders listening to the show. The stockholders call Erlick who then calls Vallesecca. As Howard is leaving the studio, Vallesecca fires Howard and has security escort him out of the building. A clip of this was shown in the trailer.
A video montage in which Howard describes what happened to him and his show after he was fired. This leads to the scene of Howard falling at the Oscars which turns out to be Howard's nightmare.
This gem of a flick is the great Rockyesque story of shock jock Howard Stern's rise to fame and infamy. I was thinking this film was gonna really suck going by a lot of the movie previews prior to its release, but I was sorely and happily mistaken.
The film is perfectly structured, perfectly written, and it's absolute travesty that Howard wasn't nominated for an Oscar for best actor! Here's what the Oscar nominees shoulda been for this film: Howard Stern for Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Private Parts also manages to take a fresh approach on the old "woman having a noisy orgasm" comedy scene. Yes, this flick is one of the few cases where the movie is actually better than the book. Over, out, and all that jazz.
