Cameos, spoofs, and quotable... all involving Weird Al. It's a great movie, especially when you want to laugh at people being dumb and clever at the same time. How can you not like a movie that has a kid drinking from a fire hose?

I want it all, on UHF

Didn't do so hot when it first came out, I guess it's just not for people outside the Weird Al fan group. It had a tough release date with movies like Batman, Indy 3, and Lethal Weapon 2 coming out about the same time, not much room for Al.
Typical Al, lots of parodies, silliness, pointlessness, and Michael Richards as the goofy janitor/tv host. I am a fan of simple movies that you don'... read more

Some of My Favorite Film Taglines (720 movies items)

""Don't touch that dial!" "It's crazy. It's outrageous. It's the T.V station run by a lunatic!" "TV the way it was meant to be seen. In a movie theater." "A lot of TV stations have forgotten what "quality" means. But not Channel 62. They NEVER knew what it meant." "It's crazy. It's zany. It's hysterical. It's TV according to "Weird Al" Yankovic.""

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"I wonder how many laughs there will be when the movie does go public. It's routine, predictable, and dumb - real dumb. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times Moments of off-centre humour, but an hour and a half of parodist Weird Al is a severe test. - Geoff Andrew, Time Out The dumbness just never stops -- just buying a ticket lowers your IQ. - Rita Kempley, Washington Post "

" Watched December 13th - Netflix Streaming 1st Viewing "Okay, right now I'd like to show you one of my favorite cartoons - it's a sad, depressing story about a pathetic coyote who spends every waking moment of his life in the futile pursuit of a sadistic roadrunner, who mocks him and laughs at him as he's repeatedly crushed and maimed - hope you'll enjoy it." - George Newman Ok, how did this movie get by me in the 80's? - UHF is a Weird Al comedy about running a low rent TV station, and it i"

Larri's picks: My Top40 of All-time (40 movies items)

"UHF directed by Jay Levey Movies that are just for me # 3 If you wanna be cruel, you could almost say Weird Al's style of spoofing without much real satire or things to say about its target is closer to Seltzer/Friedberg (!!!) stuff than, say, Brooks or Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker. By this I mean, he recreates scenes from famous movies with no real connection to the plot whatsoever and changes lines or something. The difference? He's funny. Admittedly, Weird Al's sense of humor can be kind of im"

Favorite Movies, Genre? what's that? (83 movies items)

"The first two tapes I ever bought (yes, music came on tape when I was coming up) were Beastie Boys - License to ill and 'Weird Al' Yankovic - Dare to be stupid. I stand by that decision and I stand by you Weird Al, then, now and always. "
