Pump up the Volume

Pump up the Volume is a movie starring Christian Slater as a teenager, Mark Hunter, who was forced to move from a big city to a small town against his will. His parents gave him a radio though by which to contact his friends which he had to leave behind. However, as a joke he starts up a pirate radio show, broadcasting lewd humor as "Hard Harry". Later he starts to provoke the administration of his high school which is corrupt. They try to hide all the little scandals involved with their school to make it seem to be the perfect school. There are even scams to get more funding from the government.

All of this he exposes in his radio show which is becoming increasingly popular with the teenagers at the school. The administration has caught them selling tapes and when Harry broadcasts there is a field where everyone gathers in their cars to hear what he has to say. Everything is going good until one day something terrible happens and Harry is upset that he was the cause of it.

The movie is definitely for an older audience. I couldn't find a rating but it would probably be at least PG-13 if not higher than that. Definitely a movie with a message that will make you think it gets Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
