Storyline

An outraged reverend buys a public access station that specializes in what he considers pornographic broadcasting (shows include "Conspiracy Of The Week" and "Eat Me" all on Channel 69) ran by his daughter and her friends. The teens seize the station, however and seek public support for their efforts. However, when no one seems to be paying attention they start an all nude broadcast that gets them national exposure.

Dear god, this was awful.
3 January 2000 | by greypooSee all my reviews

I was one of maybe six people who've ever seen this thing. I sat through it mostly out of respect for Blank's prior film 'Sex, Drugs and Democracy', which was interesting. This was not. The Zappa kids looked embarrassed to be there, Thicke looked lost and the script... um, was there a script?

I did like the idea of a TV station takeover ('Tapeheads' did this better), but the idea is wasted here.

Skip this - rent SD&D instead if you can find it.
