A painful attempt to satirize the making of rock videos that runs aground with a puerile plot and bombastic, self-infatuated delivery.

It's all good fun: likeable performances, unpretentious, larky direction, and a haphazard story.

The amiable screenplay by Mr. Fishman and Peter McCarthy is often funny, and never worse than silly.

The irony is that nothing Fishman and his cohorts have come up with is really as funny as a two-hour slice of MTV itself.

All of these elements have been lifted off the shelf of exhausted cliches, given a quick dusting, and plugged directly into the movie.
