Cusack and Robbins are a couple of bored security guards who get their kicks by playing around with the closed circuit television. This leads them first to unemployment, then to a new career as music promo auteurs. It's all good fun: likeable performances, unpretentious, larky direction, and a haphazard story encompassing political shenanigans, an ageing hip soul duo called The Swanky Modes (Walker and Moore), deep fried chicken, and Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys as an FBI agent! If Repo Man bounced politics off a B movie sensibility, this does the same with MTV.
