Watch UHF - Alternative Versions.
It's very telling that I had to look 15 pages deep into the user
comments to find one negative review of this movie. And the negative
reviews were from insufferable snots.
This movie made me laugh as a teenager, but it also makes me laugh as a
fully grown adult. Does that mean the humor is dumb or sophomoric? Not
necessarily. What exactly is "adult humor" anyway? Does it necessarily
need to contain graphic depictions of sex and generous uses of
profanity to be considered sophisticated and adult?? I contend that it
does not, and I cite UHF as an example.
The laughs here are genuine, and they come from lack of pretentiousness
and an honest feeling that one need not take oneself too seriously at
any given moment. Al lets us know that it's OK to make fun of yourself
as well as the rest of society. Much of what he does is
self-deprecating, and UHF is no exception. He doesn't stand around
making fun of others and establishing an air of superiority over the
rest of society. As George Newman, he becomes the everyman, infusing
much of his own personality along with his on-stage comedic persona.
And he's not afraid to kick himself around and then proceed to pull
himself up via his own bootstraps. Nobody else has to be hurt.
Plot has never been a big necessity in these spoof/parody movies. "The
Naked Gun," "Airplane," "Top Secret," "Johnny Dangerously," and many
others have had the most skeletal of plots. Cop must find and bring to
justice bad guy who shot his friend. Burned out ex-pilot must save
aircraft when crew dies. Rock and roll star must overthrow Nazi plot.
Mobster must overcome those who wish to take him down. And in "UHF" we
have Loser Man must save TV station from evil network exec. The plot is
not important; it's just a vehicle to get us from laugh to laugh and
set up the next joke.
UHF's comedy, though basic, rings true, and if you'll drop all of your
pretentious airs, you'll get it. (We all know you're not nearly as
sophisticated as you think you are anyway.) Who among us can keep from
laughing while Raul teaches poodles to fly? Who can stifle a chuckle
when Stanley is doing... well... doing just about everything he does in
this film? Al admits in his commentaries and interviews that "UHF" is
no "Citizen Kane." But that's the beauty of it. There's nothing complex
here. It's all about the laugh, and there's where this movie really
