1991 · Los Angeles
Two metalhead best friends who run a no-budget public cable television show find their lives turned around when a sleazy producer purchases the rights to their show for his prime time network. Based on a recurring Saturday Night Live sketch originated by Mike Myers, the film proved a critical and commercial success, shaping the slang of the 1990s and perhaps even more importantly, creating the most beloved lip-syncing scene of the twentieth century.
Set and shot on location throughout Chicago and the Chicago suburbs, including Cicero, Aurora, Berwyn, and Covina, and in San Francisco, Inglewood, Cerritos, West Covina, and Los Angeles, California, and Scottsdale and Mesa, Arizona.
