Researcher: The average radio listener listens for eighteen minutes. The average Howard Stern fan listens for - are you ready for this? - an hour and twenty minutes.
Pig Vomit: How can that be?
Researcher: Answer most commonly given? "I want to see what he'll say next."
Pig Vomit: Okay, fine. But what about the people who hate Stern?
Researcher: Good point. The average Stern hater listens for two and a half hours a day.
Pig Vomit: But... if they hate him, why do they listen?
Researcher: Most common answer? "I want to see what he'll say next."
This is a very enjoyable movie to watch. Its an autobiographical movie that describes Howard Stern's life from Howard's point of view.
Sure it may be skewed to Howard's side of things, but I don't care, I like Stern. Its not like I would feel better for knowing the absolute truth about Howard Stern's life.
Its also nice the Robin and Fred, from Howard's show, are also in the film playing themselves, along with Paul Giamatti who is great.
The movie has a good soundtrack reflecting the times, is paced rather nicely, and has a nice fun feel throughout.
Jackie: My answer is "cock", and I wrote it really big, so I have a "big cock!"
Howard: I'm afraid you can't say "big cock" on the air. That's a no-no.
Robin Quivers: But I just said "pussy".
Jackie: [whining] Yeah, she just said *pussy*!
Howard: Well, pussy's okay. It's the way you say it. "Big cock" coming out of your mouth is, just not good.
Jackie: Wait a minute. I can't say "big cock", but you can say "big cock coming out of your mouth?"
Howard: That's right.
Jackie: That sucks!
