A new collection of Weird Al Yankovic's parody and original music videos, including "The Saga Begins" and "All About The Pentiums" from the "Running With Scissors" album and "Bob" from the "Poodle Hat" album.
This is a collection of "Weird Al" Yankovic's music videos from 1983 to 1996. It also includes the title sequence he did for the movie "Spy Hard", without, for some odd legal reason, the actual titles.
George Newman (Yankovic) is a normal man. Problem is, he's also a daydreamer, who can't keep hold of a steady job. His uncle decides George will be the perfect man to manage Channel 62, a station which is losing money and viewers fast. George's imagination is put to good use and he starts thinking up bizarre shows such as "Wheels of Fish" and "Raul's Wild Kingdom". The ratings start to soar again, but not everyone is happy.

In late 1988, Orion Pictures took advantage of the high anticipation for the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) by putting out a teaser trailer that used much of UHF's "Raiders of the Lost Ark" spoof footage, but withheld revealing Weird Al's face and the title until the end. The teaser is available as a special feature on the DVD release. See more »
When the video of R.J.'s rant is played back by Philo ("This community means about as much to me..." etc.), R.J.'s phrasing at the beginning of the rant doesn't match when he's originally heard saying it earlier in the film. See more »

Hello, this is Sy Greenblum, president of Spatula City. I like the spatulas so much, I bought the company.

This is probably, by far, the only movie I've seen that really makes me laugh more and more every time I see it. It's one of the only comedies that has good, clean humor. The whole movie is just a joke itself, a mix of original jokes, and many parodies. Michael Richards is perfect as Stanley, the Janitor. Weird Al is his usual comedic genius, who is also perfect for his role as the manager of 'U62'. For anybody who's in for a night full of laughs, UHF is definitely for you. A comedy masterpiece, 10/10!
