Deep In The Dial:

Tapeheads-1

Tonight in Deep In The Dial has its first color film! Tapeheads will air on FLIX at 9:45 p.m., EST. Set your DVR or have your popcorn ready at 9:30 p.m. for this 1988 John Cusack and Tim Robbins comedy.

John Cusack and Tim Robbins play two best friends who start a music video production company after they’re fired from their jobs as security guards. Among their adventures is running afoul of hitmen, hijacking a Menudo concert to promote their favorite group, and getting kicked out of a label office by Ted Nugent.

The film is also notable for a fake ad for Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles and its cameos: Courtney Love, Doug E. Fresh, Don Cornelius, Fishbone (who provide the score), and Jello Biafra.

Here’s the preserved trailer:

Pairs nicely with AirheadsReality Bites, and High Fidelity.
