Movie Info

A bizarre retro comedy shot entirely on VHS, VHYes takes us back to a simpler time, when twelve-year-old Ralph mistakenly records home videos and his favorite late night shows over his parents' wedding tape. The result is a nostalgic wave of home shopping clips, censored pornography, and nefarious true-crime tales that threaten to unkindly rewind Ralph's reality.

  • Throughout, "VHYes" laces its nostalgia with bitter poison, reminding its audience that even in the carefree couch potato days of 1987, the end-times always loomed.

  • This is a movie that is really just a stream of consciousness, experimental, Robot Chicken-style collage.

    January 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • VHYes breaks the biggest rule of parody, over and over again: it simply tries way too hard with material that's far too easy.

    January 17, 2020 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • This is pretty thin stuff, written with medium-watt inspiration at best and acted by performers variably able to make it seem better than it is.

  • [T]he real problem with VHYes may be that its two modes don't work well together.

  • Though hardly groundbreaking in either its content or its aesthetics, the film is more serious than it initially lets on, and can only benefit from the VHS nostalgia that has, often irrationally, taken root in some quarters.
