FM, for all its ingratiating players, is an unredeemable mess that can't even make it to simplistic. 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. Full Review
...[A] star-studded soundtrack....[The] FM radio set perfectly imparts an L.A. slickness without overdoing the effect....It is beautifully lensed...
Rating: 2/4 -- Mull, as a spaced-out DJ, steals the show, emanating energy with which neither the other actors nor the music can compete. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Completely of its time.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Rating: 2.5/4 -- 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. Full Review
The groovy deejays at L.A.'s hippest radio station rail against the revenue-hungry corporation that pulls all the strings. Company bigwigs want to load up the airwaves with snazzy rock-and-roll commercials for the Army, but the jocks bristle at the new "improvements" and eventually go on strike to regain control. A crowd of supporters gathers outside as the radio personalities commandeer the station in order to spread their positive, carefree message to the public. Maybe Mull's finest performance, major contemporary music star power in cameos and performances, and a sizzling soundtrack.
