Ignored both at the cinema and on tape, this is a gem that is as happy sending up the music video world as it is poking fun at politics.

TV Guide
November 6, 2009
A wacky, high-energy satire of the music business.

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

November 6, 2009
A painful attempt to satirize the making of rock videos that runs aground with a puerile plot and bombastic, self-infatuated delivery.

It's the kind of harmless breezy film that's easy to take on late night cable TV when you don't feel like using your noodle.

Tapeheads plays with the same kind of off-kilter energy that Repo Man has, but lacks the complete abandon of the former.

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

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

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

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.
