Did You Know?


The film's opening "Fartman" sequence is based on Howard Stern's appearance on the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards. Stern (as Fartman) and Luke Perry (John Stamos in the film) presented the award for Best Metal/Hard Rock Video to Metallica for their "Enter Sandman" video; drummer Lars Ulrich and lead guitarist Kirk Hammett accepted the award. Perry and a female audience member managed to each grab a handful of Fartman's posterior, while Ulrich grabbed Fartman's codpiece. The other nominees for Best Metal/Hard Rock Video were "Let's Get Rocked" by Def Leppard, "Everything About You" by Ugly Kid Joe and "Right Now" by Van Halen.

Howard is attempting to give a woman an orgasm over the phone. He is speaking to her on the phone and at the same time she is listening to the show on the radio. There is a time delay of several seconds before the show is broadcast over the air. Being on the phone and listening at the same time would create feedback and would not allow the conversation to continue as portrayed.

Crazy Credits

Kenny talks about his life after Howard, which eventually becomes a rant about how horrible Howard is.

Alternate Versions

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.
