Product Description

"Weird Al" Yankovic, Kevin McCarthy (Innerspace), Michael Richards ("Seinfeld"), David Bowie (The Cable Guy), Victoria Jackson ("Saturday Night Live") and Fran Drescher ("The Nanny") star in this inspired comedy about an offbeat guy who turns a deadbeat TV station into a raging success! Broadcasting Weird Al's uniquely strange brand of humor, UHF's Channel 62 is a place you'll want to visit...with increasing frequency! George Newman (Weird Al) is a daydreamer whose hyperactive imagination keeps him from holding a steady job...until his uncle hires him as manager of Channel 62, a TV station that's losing money and viewers fast. But when George replaces the station's reruns with bizarre programs like "Wheel of Fish," "The Wonderful World Of Phlegm" and "Raul's Wild Kingdom" (where poodles fly from third-story windows), ratings begin to soar! But as the ratings rise, so does the wrath of TV mogul R.J. Fletcher (McCarthy), who wants to turn the station into a parking lot. Can George find the money he needs to stay on the air? Stay tuned!

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 problem with the dvd. Dec 22 2003
Format:DVD
I love this movie but there is one problem. It is double sided. I hate double sided dvds (but, I can understand why "Gone with the wind" had 2 sides; it's too long to fit on on side.) It is stupid to double side a dvd for widescreen and full-screen formats. They should be made separately so when the company sells the dvd to stores, the stores will probably buy both to give their customers their choice. They'd probably make more money that way. Anyways, this movie is great. Weird Al rules. Buy this ASAP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally wacky and absolutely hilarious June 16 2004
Format:DVD
Okay. I'll admit it. UHF is one of my favorite movies. And I'm not ashamed, either. After all, it's a product of Weird Al Yankovic, who's famous for his strange parodies of popular songs-like "Eat It" or "Amish Paradise" or "Like a Surgeon" or "I Love Rocky Road." In other words, it's totally wacky and absolutely hilarious.
Weird Al plays George Newman, a guy whose overactive imagination has lost him-and his friend, Bob (David Bowe)-yet another job. When his uncle wins a nearly bankrupt UHF station (remember UHF?) in a poker game, he gives the studio to George. Determined to make this job work, George and Bob-with the help of receptionist/reporter Pamela Finklestein (Fran Drescher) and janitor Stanley Spadowski (Michael Richards)-create exciting shows that has everyone in town watching. But when R.J. Fletcher (Kevin McCarthy), the head of the local network affiliate, finds out, he decides to do everything in his power to shut George down and turn U-62 into a parking lot.
Words cannot even begin to describe the hilarity of this movie. On a recent trip, I popped UHF into my laptop's DVD player on the plane, and I was pretty much in tears for the entire hour and a half. Michael Richards alone makes the movie worth watching (repeatedly). And while the movie does have a few slow parts, it's necessary-it gives you time to recover before the side-splitting laughter begins once again. If you're a fan of Michael Richards, off-the-wall comedies, and/or Weird Al, this is a must-see.

5.0 out of 5 stars UHF: "The most important DVD release. Ever." May 13 2004
Format:DVD
This is a repost of my review from the IMDB site, but since my feelings on the movie haven't changed between then and now, hey.
Many folks find themselves laughing out loud at Al's latest song or video -- at least, the first time they experience it. They might later claim he's stupid or not funny, afraid possibly of being labeled a fan. They might avoid UHF in the belief that it's just an extended Al video.
Their loss.
'UHF' is one of those movies that had a miserable, worthless existence in the theater, shunned by the masses. The recognition of its genius was slow to arrive, but the movie did eventually find cult status on video and cable. The reason, simply: It's hilarious.
Part Naked Gun and part Al video, with plenty of sight gags, this is the kind of movie that only Al could make. "Wheel Of Fish" and "Conan the Librarian" are funnier than they have any right to be, and just wait until you see "Raul's Wild Kingdom".
The cast of 'UHF' seems almost prescient in retrospect; Fran Drescher and Michael Richards made memorable co-stars before they struck gold on network TV. Richards, especially, is hilarious as janitor-turned-TV host Stanley Spadowski. He's brilliant, better than anyone else in the movie and better even than the material he's given.
Although ostensibly a dig at TV, 'UHF' actually lampoons movies and commercials far more effectively, with hilarious send-ups of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', 'Ghandi' and 'Rambo: First Blood Part II'.
But enough. I've already wasted too many words describing a movie that just needs to be seen. If you absolutely hate Al, or 'Airplane'-type movies, then avoid 'UHF'. Anyone else who just wants to laugh (a lot) needs to give it a look.

3.0 out of 5 stars You Know, For Kids. March 23 2004
By tvtv3
Format:VHS Tape
I like Wierd Al. I've listened to his songs since I was a kid. I remember when UHF came out many years ago and wanting to go see it, but not being able to. Recently, the movie has come up several times in conversations I have had with people. References to "Wheel of Fish" and "Ghandi II" in UHF were specifically mentioned. So, a few weeks ago I went with a friend on a search to find this movie and watch it.
UHF wasn't anything like I expected it to be. I hate saying this because I like Wierd Al, I really do, but there were a lot of parts in the movie that were just painful to watch. Now, I realize that if I was a twelve-year old kid who didn't watch 100 movies a year like I do know, I would probably find UHF to be hilarious. Now, a lot of stuff in the movie isn't funny at all and is just plain dumb. The dialogue is terrible. The sets look like something stolen from an Ed Wood picture and often the lightening messes up the picture.
The movie does, however, have some redeeming qualities. Wierd Al does a decent job of acting in the movie, especially considering what type of movie it is. Victoria Jackson has a small role and I still think she's a classy lady to watch. But if you really are looking for a reason to watch UHF, there's only one: Michael Richards (you know, he played Kramer on Seinfeld). In the plot of the movie, Richard's character literally saves the UHF station run by Wierd Al's character. However, Michael Richards also saves the movie UHF. There is no movie without him. He is it's true star. This was Richards several years before he found fame playing Kramer and he is just as hilarious here as he was on Seinfeld. In many ways his character in UHF is the proto-Kramer. As bad as other parts of the movie are, UHF is worth watching, if for not any other reason, just for Michael Richards' performance. It's a Grade A comic performance.
