Warning: Parental Advisory is a 2002 tv-movie, originally aired on VH-1, about the 1985 PMRC hearings where John Denver, Dee Snider and Frank Zappa testified before Congress about proposed governmental regulations on music.


Tropes found in Warning: Parental Advisory:

  • As Himself: Dee Snider's role is played by Dee Snider.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Tipper Gore settles on "Parents Music Resource Center" as a name for their committee after rejecting other names for having acronyms like "PMS" or "POOP."
  • Advertisement:
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: Charlie's strategy is to recruit John Denver to play good cop at the hearings, to counteract Zappa's more aggressive tactics.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Charlie dismisses the PMRC as a bunch of bored housewives with stationery, ignoring Pamela's warning that they have the most important resource of all in Washington, connections.
