Overview

Betty Thomas' biopic of radio star Howard Stern comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed- captioned English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. Spanish subtitles are accessible. The lack of supplemental materials is a disappointment, but the quality of the sound and picture on this disc make it worthwhile to anyone interested in the film.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
Although this biographical comedy about famed shock jock Howard Stern has all the raunch his fans would expect, it is also a remarkably moving love story. Stern's courtship and marriage to his wife Allison is presented by director Betty Thomas, through all its turbulent ups and downs, including the notorious miscarriage argument. Anyone wondering how Allison Stern can put up with her husband's tell-all radio personality and on-air sexual flirting with nude models might start to understand. It is because she loves him, and even viewers who don't love Stern's caustically honest style will leave this film at least respecting that.

I love this movie almost as much as I love his radio show. Howard is so cute and I adore is obsession with women. His voice is like a beacon of hope that I plan my days around.
