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.

You really have to be in the right mood for a movie for this to work. Get home from work, and rent this and try to get yourself away from reality, and enter the completely stupuid, dumb, funny world of Weird Al Yankovich.. Al plays a loser who is fired from his job(along with his best friend) so they go off and start a tv station called UHF, in which they make fun of some of shows and movies. Like, "Conan the Librarian"...That and the Rambo one are some of my favorites. Or how about making fun of the nature shows and the Bozo the Clown Show...wheww this movie really has you cracked up at the end. 3/5 stars, it was hilarious and is definitely on my list of must sees.
