The autobiographical story of Howard Stern, the radio rebel who is now also a TV personality, an author and a movie star.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus was originally cast as Alison, but backed out to spend time with her family.
I know I seem a little too old to be in College. But for this movie you've gotta suspend disbelief.
When Howard and Allison are driving from Detroit to Washington, D.C., Howard gets out of the car to fill the gas tank. The delivery hose on the gasoline dispenser had been modernized with a "Stage II Vapor Recovery" system, which was not introduced until the late-'80s.
Closing disclaimer: This motion picture is based, in part, upon actual events, persons and companies. However, numerous of the characters, incidents and companies portrayed and the names used herein are fictitious.
For its airings on the USA Network, the movie occasionally pauses and 'Howard Stern' appears to provide commentary on the movie. Also, in an atypical move for a basic cable channel, USA Network presented the movie with no edits -- but with all spoken obscenities bleeped and objectionable visuals (nudity, drug use) electronically masked. This version also airs on VH1.
