“ He's not going to be some big romantic lead, but he surrounds himself with a decent cast (except a wasted Victoria Principal), does some funny stuff, and generally ends up with an enjoyable flick.
“Still, the movie also had its dull moments.
“ evil (Channel 8) story a bit ho-hum and the humor a little too...
“ I say it's worth watching (if you lucky enough to find it).
“ Look So Boring.
“UHF is simply an unfunny, formulaic, clichéd and utterly bland experience.
“ Instead, he gave us a predictable film.
“ Start to finish, this is a very entertaining and funny film that is still worth watching after several viewings.
“ This whole movie feels rather slow, with too much dead time between gags and barely enough of a plot to keep going.
“ A single Al music video is far more entertaining than the entire film.
“ There are a couple of memorable, though weird (they don't call him Weird Al for nothing), gags that are enjoyable even on repeat viewings.
“ But overall, it is a perfect movie to watch when entertaining a room full of morons, and all will have a great time.
“ Weird Al is wonderfully entertaining in every medium (music, TV, concerts) and movies are no exception.
“ Clean and engaging humor .
“ Indeed, the parodies of films like Rambo and Indiana Jones actually look reasonably good, though far from original, entertaining and anything less than self-indulgent.
“ This is not a film for everyone; despite my having been a fan of Al for about a third of my life, I was bored watching this film more often than not.
“ The movie is one of those where when you're bored, it will always make you laugh.
“ Along the way, Al comes up with several gimmicky shows for the station, all of which are showcased in a slow, tedious, unfunny way.
“ UHF creates a huge crime in comedy, it bores us.
“ One of the funniest and most enjoyable movies I have ever seen.
“ Very zany, very funny, and very unpredictable.
“ Al's humor is riveting and engaging, without resorting to crude sexual jokes or disgusting bodily functions.
“ Some funny concepts and situations early on get over-shadowed by a sophomoric script, unsteady direction and a ho-hum resolution.
“ What I really noticed in this film is that it's possible to be funny: a) without having every second word begin with "F" b) without being crude c) without being worried about political correctnessand most importantly, it's possible to make a wacky film that isn't stupid, pointless and eye-rolling-ly moronic provided that you have originality.
“ There are some dull moments in this story though.
“ Michael Richards -- before "Seinfeld " -- makes a fascinating character out of Stanley Spadowski, and Weird Al is just being himself, which is all he has to do.
“ Allow yourself to wade through the slower first 1/4 of the movie so you can get to the GOLD, such as Gandhi 2, Conan the Librarian, or the commercials for cut rate funerals or for Spatula City!
“ This is one of the least funny, flattest, most contrived and absurd comedies I have ever seen.
“ And, of course, it was entertaining to see such well-known performers as Michael Richards and Fran Dresher in this early role.
“ It's a perfect bored-Saturday-night film.
“UHF is a hugely enjoyable comedy.
“ I just finished watching the film today for my first time and i have to say it was an enjoyable film.
“ I think that all that enjoy really stupid yet funny movies, with cheap budgets, and pretty dumb pointless plots, will think this is just great.
“ And predictable is boring.
“ This film, particularly the opening sequence, is classic Al, and is so funny, I have really enjoyed it every time I've seen it.
“ One needs to be able to tolerate and enjoy the occasion stupid and pointless joke to enjoy the film.
