"...Stern's radio routines are here in all their barrel-bottom-skimming glory..."
USA Today - 03/07/1997
"...Stern plays himself with disarming self-deprecation..."
New York Times - 03/07/1997
"...[A] sure-fire hit comedy....The movie develops real sunniness while delivering the insults and innuendoes that are the backbone of Mr. Stern's show..."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/14/1997
"...[Stern] proves to be a game and likable actor..."
Los Angeles Times - 03/07/1997
"...PRIVATE PARTS is a supremely crafty, smartly written, and -- given the number of 'himselfs' and 'herselfs' on the cast list -- surprisingly well-acted piece of pop kitsch..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 03/07/1997
"...Surprisingly sweet....Many sequences are very funny..."
Radio's larger-than-life bad boy, and self-proclaimed "King of All Media," Howard Stern exposes his "Private Parts" in this adaptation of his best-selling autobiography. Tracing his evolution from hopelessly geeky student to top-rated shock jock, the film not only chronicles his legendarily off-color on-air demeanor (Lesbian Dial-a-Date; frequent nude guests) and his continuous battles with management over content and co-hosts, but it also examines his unexpectedly touching and sincere relationship with his wife, Alison.
