Watch Tapeheads For Free
The story of Ivan and Josh, two dim witted ex-security guards who love music videos. Out of work, with no job prospects, they form a music video production company. They soon learn the in's and out's of the business in LA and with some help from Mo Fuzz, they soon become hot property. But not all goes smoothly when they try to resurrect the career of their favorite R&B duo, the Swanky Modes.

All of these elements have been lifted off the shelf of exhausted cliches, given a quick dusting, and plugged directly into the movie.
The irony is that nothing Fishman and his cohorts have come up with is really as funny as a two-hour slice of MTV itself.
The amiable screenplay by Mr. Fishman and Peter McCarthy is often funny, and never worse than silly.
It s all good fun: likeable performances, unpretentious, larky direction, and a haphazard story.
A painful attempt to satirize the making of rock videos that runs aground with a puerile plot and bombastic, self-infatuated delivery.
