George Newman is a daydreamer whose hyperactive imagination keeps him from holding a steady job. His uncle decides George would be the perfect man to manage Channel 62, a television station which is losing money and viewers fast. When George replaces the station's reruns with bizarre programs such as "Stanley Spadowski's Clubhouse", "Wheel of Fish" and "Raul's Wild Kingdom", ratings begin to soar again. Mean-spirited and cynical mogul R.J. Fletcher becomes furious that the UHF station is getting better ratings than his network's programming. Because of gambling debts, the uncle is forced to consider selling the station to Fletcher, who would only too happily shut down (he cannot legally own two stations in the same town). George and his friends organize a 48-hour telethon to raise the money by selling investment stock from Channel 62 to save the town's new favorite station.Written by

The "drink from the fire hose" idea came from a comedy routine that 'Weird Al' Yankovic developed in college with his friend Joel Miller - which is the name of the boy in this scene. See more »
When we see the apartment from outside, a car drives in front of the camera, and the camera, the cameraman, and offstage actors are reflected in the side of the car. See more »

That's right. To Uncle Nutzy's Clubhouse. And boy-oh-boy, are we gonna have big fun today. We're gonna have so much fun, we'll forget about how miserable we are, and how much life sucks, and how we're all gonna grow old and die someday.

Shut up, you little weasel!
Okay. Right now, I'd like to show you one of my favorite cartoons. It's a sad, depressing story about a pathetic coyote who spends every waking moment of his ...

The Comedy Central version deletes quite a little out of such a short film - mainly bits related to animal cruelty, such as much of the "Raul's Wild Kingdom" scene (involving teaching poodles how to fly) and the punchline of car commercial (the owner threatens to club a baby seal if buyers don't come). Among other bits deleted: a scene regarding gun nuts; part of the scene where Emo Phillips loses a finger in a saw; most of the first "Uncle Nutzy's Clubhouse" scene (probably because the final punchline involves a guy eating dog treats by accident); the part of the "Conan the Librarian" sequence where a guy says he has an overdue library book, and Conan bloodlessly cuts him in half with his sword; a sequence with an elderly lady who knees R.J. Fletcher in the crotch. See more »

Makes Real T.V. Look So Boring!
UHF is a story about a man who gets to have a Television Station. It is hilarious in most of the scenes. The villain is also so funny, and never really gets credited most of the time people watch this film.
Weird Al stars as a wacky guy who always has many funny ideas for television and movies and many other things. The real show-stopper in this movie is Raul's Wild Kingdom, you have to see it for yourself. The bad-guy works for the competing station, which had higher ratings.
Some parts of this film are not that funny, but stupid. If you are a big fan of Weird Al you'll love this film. And if you aren't then you will still love it. This film is for everyone.
What I think it should be rated and why: PG-13 for some crude and sexual humor, brief language, and some comic violent images.
