This is basically the soundtrack for the movie of the same name. There a few songs that did not play in the movie, but still I will still recommend it.

This album was released in 1989, and is in part the soundtrack to "Weird Al" Yankovic's movie UHF, but most of its contents is not included in the movie. On this album, included in the movie, is the song "Money For Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies," the movie's theme "UHF," two clips from the movie, and an instrumental called "Fun Zone." All of those are quite good.
However, there's also a lot of great stuff on this album that is not included in the movie, such as "The Hot Rocks Polka," which is a polka medley of Rolling Stones songs. There are also some great parodies, along with some great originals. My favourite song on here is an original called "Generic Blues." Now, that one can sure crack listeners up!
A must-have for all "Al-oholics!"

UHF was a great movie, and Al topped it off by putting out a great soundtrack. It was great to hear the songs from the movie, such as Money For Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies and UHF, but Al also brought in new parodies and originals to complete this album. He's at his best in the originals. Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from a Planet Near Mars has a lot of funny moments, as do Generic Blues and The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota. For parodies, Al is seldom funnier than he is in Spam. It is truly an indicator of Al's awesome abilites. This album, just like its corresponding movie, is sadly underrated.

The hot rocks polka has nothing to do with the UHF movie, but it's Weird Al's best polka ever!
(if the Rolling Stones are going to keep recording and touring -- and they are looking for a fresh sound -- they'd probably do well to copy Weird Al's polka style)
As for the rest of the soundtrack ... well, it's just good plain fun!

As others before me have said, this cd is awesome. Its humor is infectious for those who have seen the movie and those that haven't alike. Songs from the movie include UHF and Money For Nothing, while the other tracks are pure Al hilarity. Fan of the Stones? You'll love Hot Rocks Polka. Or into Tone Loc? Try Isle Thing. And for the true Harry Chappen fan's out there.. remember 30,000 lbs of Bananas? Weird Al perfectly mimics the rhythm of that infamous voyage with his own Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota. True fun for all types.

After the middle-of-the-road Even Worse, Al made a movie, UHF, now a cult 80's film, and the soundtrack to it shows him back in form. How many hours did Mr. Yankovic lie awake thinking about how to incorporate the lyrics to the Beverly Hillbillies song to Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing". Mark Knopfler was generous enough, as he also did the guitar for this song!
"Gandhi II" is a TV trailer from the UHF movie. "Next week, on U62, he's back, and this time he's mad. No more Mr. Passive Resistance" and it's done to the melody from Shaft by Isaac Hayes.
"Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from A Planet Near Mars." Yes, sounds like the title of a bad 1950's UFO movie and if you ever heard "Slime Creatures From Outer Space" from Dare To Be Stupid, you get the idea what kind of song it is. I wonder if Al had a pet hamster and was staring at intently enough to come up with a wacky song. Hamsters the size of a blimp, who play electric guitars, and "think the whole stinkin' world is their exercise wheel"... wow!
"Isle Thing" incorporates a TV song with Tone-Loc's "Wild Thing" and Al's mimicking Mr. Loc's voice is simply funny. "I'm watching that Gilligan's Isle Thing" is the tag line to the chorus. His commentary on the various characters is great, as he says that Ginger and Maryann could've used some funky cold medina. And on the Professor, "If he's so fly, then tell me why he couldn't build a lousy raft?" Hasta la vista, little buddy!
Polka time, and this time it's all Rolling Stones song.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on July 4 2003
Format: Audio CD
In the great tradition of the Beatles's "Hard Day's Night" album, "UHF" not only presents all of the songs that appeared in "Weird Al" Yankovic's 1989 film of the same name, but additional songs recorded in the studio. By now, the "Weird Al" formula is set in stone. Producer Rick Derringer not only plays guitar but makes sure the parodies on "UHF" sound as much like the originals as possible (e.g., "She Drives Like Crazy" versus the Fine Young Cannibal's "She Drives Me Crazy"). This serves to set up the humor of the lyricism sung in Yankovic's weird but strangely compelling voice (his singing talent as a parodist is probably the most overlooked aspect of his success). Yes, "Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters From a Planet Near Mars" is one of his worse original compositions, but clearly the man needs to purge such things out of his system with appalling regularity. But "Weird Al" makes up for this with "Gandhi II," a brilliant take off on the theme from "Shaft." "Money for Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies," "Isle Thing," and "Spam" all reinforce the "Weird Al" fixation on two key ingredients of modern American popular culture, namely television and food. The polka medley makes its return on this album, with "The Hot Rocks Polka" devoted entirely to the music of the Rolling Stones (I am still waiting for "Weird Al" to take on the Beatles, but that might require an entire album--which is perfectly all right with me, boys and girls). Ultimately, "UHF" is neither as good as the album that preceded it, "Even Worse," or the great one that would follow, "Off the Deep End," but on balance it is better than any of his first four efforts.
