Tapeheads (1988)

US 93m, Colour
Director: Bill Fishman; Cast: John Cusack, Tim Robbins, Sam Moore, Junior Walker, Clu Gulager, Doug McClure, Katy Boyer, Jessica Walter

A slapstick musical parody of the MTV generation, Tapeheads is an amusing comedy about two friends who go into the music video business after being fired from their security jobs. Considering the ridiculous screenplay, this film is far better than it should be because of the fledgling talents of Cusack and Robbins. Featuring a host of character actors and odd cameos appearances, which include Connie Stevens, Don Cornelius, Ted Nugent, and “Weird Al” Yankovic, Tapeheads is a dizzying farce that has producer Michael Nesmith’s fingerprints all over it (Klaus Ming August 2016).
