Weird Al's film hasn't aged a bit...

Literally everything but the kitchen sink, and while it doesn't always hit the sweetest notes of inspiration, it maintains a lovable spiritedness and offers the odd gut-buster. And dumb guy humor. UHF has some of the best dumb guy humor around.

If the idea of a Weird Al movie is anathema to you, just don't bother reading anything I write, ever.

UHF is about as good as it gets when it comes to silly comedies.

Apollo Guide

If the plot structure of UHF leaves something to be desired, that's okay because we're offered a mostly hilarious series of Saturday Night Live-style television parodies.
