I have been watching this movie extensivley lately. Even though the plot is hokey and over the top melodramatic it is chock full of hilarious moments. Especially Unkle Nutsy's Clubhouse and Michael Richard's antics throughout. Also Gedde Watanabe playing Kuni,"SO STUPID!!!!!!!!!" :D The Spatula City commercial is so ridiculous it is almost painful to watch but it is still great.

"Today we're teaching poodles how to fly!"

I just love the extras on the DVD, too. A great DVD, especially considering the rock-bottom price. :D

I remember seeing this movie at a midnight showing the day it was released. There were only 12 of us in the theater, but about half way through the movie we were falling out of our seats laughing so hard.

"Are you tired of those second hand funerals?'
"Come try our new salad bar!"

It is sad how they were put up against some of the biggest movies of our time that were being released that summer.

I love the SW reference of Stanley swooping his mop around and it makes lightsaber sounds.

Great film and a great DVD too. My family has always loved it since I introduced it to them.

I remember that summer well, I saw a LOT of films at the theaters in Westwood, including UHF. By the time UHF came out, Batman, Star Trek 6, and Indy & Last Crusade were winding down, Ghostbusters 2 had bombed, Weekend at Bernies hadn't really picked up steam yet, Lethal Weapon 2 was dominating, License to Kill was floundering, and When Harry Met Sally was doing well. UHF kinda got lost in all of that, and even afterwards there was so much more that swallowed the film up, even though there was a ton of dreck. UHF was great, but nobody noticed.

That summer (1989) was such a great time for movies. I remember going out about every weekend to see a new flick. UHF was so odd yet so funny and original. That movie parodies tons of stuff from Rambo to Raiders. Plus we got a sneak preview of the Kramer-to-be.

I may just have to check out the DVD...

Hey scruff, I have heard that sequence was total improv - that poor little plastic parachutist. ;) I like the "... tastes like poop" line from said scene.

Oh, and just call me Mister Butterfingers.

I do believe I know the answer to this one...all the actors in both movies can be connected to Kevin Bacon in six or less movies. :D

I've never seen this film, save for one scene. The closet with the word SUPPLIES on it, and the Asian(s) jump out and yell "SUPPLIES!" Funny. Milk out my nose funny. :)

The guy who played RJ Fletcher's son who was the winy, immature one (BUT DAD?!?!?!?) was the Genie on PeeWee's Playhouse. Laurence Fishburne(Morpheus) was Cowboy Curtis on PeeWee's Playhouse.

I finally saw this, twice actually. :D I had only seen parts of it years earlier, great movie! I wish Weird Al could be in more, seems he actually had some acting potential. 'Course he was in Spy Hard at the very beginning singing the James Bond song parody, but still. Can the DVD still be found? Definitely gotta check it out..

The DVD's actually pretty new (maybe a year old, I think). Circuit City advertises it pretty regularly for $8.99, and it's easy to find it for $9.99 there and at Wal-Mart at other times.

I saw this yesterday on Showtime at my aunt's house (after Clockstoppers [pretty good] and before AOTC [the 11th time - definitely better on a 60" than a 9" :D ]). Oh man it was hilarious!!!!!! I love the Rambo part, when that guy was at point-blank range with a machine gun, and Al just shot an arrow at him and he blew up! HAHAHAHAHA!!! And I couldn't believe it when I saw the twinkie wiener sandwich, like he gives to Eminem on AL-TV (see signature line)! Now I need to buy the DVD!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

My b'day was this last Saturday and my sister-in-law got me the DVD. I hadn't seen the entire movie in years so it was a great present.

I was kind of surprised at the disc. There were way more extras than I thought it would have, like a commentary and deleted scenes, yet it didn't even come with an insert card.

Anyways, a great movie. It's worth the $10 or whatever it costs.
