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

Movies the giraffe watched in 2015: January (23 movies items)

"Re-watch - Jan. 28th When I found out Drafthouse was screening UHF, I jumped at the chance. This is a film that screened for about a week in theatres when it first came out, so like most people I first saw it on VHS and had to settle for being part of its devoted cult following. Now I have added my name to the short list of people who have seen it on the big screen as it was intended to be seen, and for that I'm grateful. The only way it could have been better is if they'd made it a Quote-Along"

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. "

"Re-watch - June 16th This week The A.V. Club added UHF to its New Cult Canon. Reading the article & all the comments attached to it (most of which celebrated its quotability) had me itching to revisit it for the umpteenth time. Still hilarious."

"Joel Miller, you've just found the marble in the oatmeal! You're a lucky, lucky, lucky little boy, because you know why? You get to drink from...THE FIREHOSE!!!!!!! I'd give an argument for how this works as well as the ZAZ canon in terms of absurdist humor, but this scene answers my question much clearer than me rambling."

"Bob: I don't know about this, George. We don't know the first thing about what goes on in a television station. George Newman: Don't worry, Bob. It's just like working in a fish-market. Except you don't have to clean and gut fish all day. "
