Howard Stern's funny outlook on his life and how he became the radio personality that he is today. From start to finish, Stern takes us from childhood to present day showing a more human side to the often wild and hated person that most hear on the radio.
The movie starts at childhood to show how Stern's father first gave him the idea of being on the radio. From there it shows how he met his wife and how he was in college. Then the movie progresses on how he found his side-kicks (including Robin Quivers) and his rise to the top in DC (DC101) and New York (WNBC). The movie is full of laughter, but also has its serious moments. If you are a Stern love or hater, you might just be suprised to find out the differences in his personality both on and off the air.
The DVD version of this film is wonderful. The video transfer is very sharp with no signs of any compression problems. The disc is presented in 1.85:1 widescreen only and it is not 16x9 enhanced. The audio is presented in DD 5.1 and is terrific. Though the surrounds are not heavily used, it is a very clean soundtrack. Once again, Paramount included no special features (not even a trailer). Stern wanted to do a Commentary track for the disc, but Paramount went against his wishes. Note: The movie is however originally narrarated by Stern anyways.
The movie is highly recommeded for its content: The laughter and the look into a radio icon. Released by Paramount, the movie is rated R for language, nudity, and adult content. Runs 108 minutes.
