Movie Info

Los Angeles radio station QSKY tops the ratings charts by playing the best music with little advertising. When the corporate higher-ups push for more commercials, radio station manager Jeff Dugan (Michael Brandon) refuses to comply, which sends sales manager Regis Lamar (Tom Tarpey) running to the bosses. Dugan quits in defiance, but his loyal disc jockeys -- including Mother (Eileen Brennan), Eric Swan (Martin Mull) and the Prince of Darkness (Cleavon Little) -- protest with a lock-in.

Critic Reviews for FM

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (8)

  • Dugan, who's heavily into the music biz, is against commercials on commercial radio (but since QSKY pumps out an endless stream of Ronstadt, the Eagles and Queen, wouldn't a few mindless jingles go unnoticed?)

  • A preposterously self-serving variation on 1960's themes.

    May 9, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • It gets the standard rock-movie formula backwards by trying to base a revolution around some of the safest, least revolutionary music in the history of rock.

    May 30, 2001 | Full Review…
  • Embarrassing youth cult film, founded on the shaky premise that the staff of a "progressive" LA rock station have to fight their management for the right to play Olivia Newton-John.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • The "us against the establishment" plotline is hoary and silly, and the movie fares better when it focuses on specific character incidents rather than any greater themes.

    July 20, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Mull, as a spaced-out DJ, steals the show, emanating energy with which neither the other actors nor the music can compete.
