A committee investigating TV's first uncensored network examines a typical day's programming, which includes shows, commercials, news programs, you name it. What they discover will surely crack you up! This outrageous and irreverent spoof of television launched the careers of some of the greatest comedians of all time. Written by
Having starred in the zany "Groove Tube", Chevy Chase then had a brief appearance in the wacky "Tunnel Vision", about a Senate subcommittee investigating Tunnel Vision, the first free network, in 1985. The channel features various loony shows and commercials, the sort of things that "UHF" later portrayed. Part spoof of '70s TV, part prediction of what the '80s would be, the movie's a hoot. Probably the funniest scene is Henry Kissinger (not the real one, obviously) getting interviewed on a kids' show where the puppet has a comment about Nixon. Along with Chevy Chase, also starring are John Candy, Al Franken, Tom Davis, Betty Thomas, Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman.
So, in conclusion, the best movies ever made about TV are: "The Groove Tube", "Tunnel Vision", "The Kentucky Fried Movie" and "UHF".
