While ‘Weird Al’ has recorded parody songs that make an 8-year-old squeal with laughter, the idea that he could write and star in a movie that keep an adult laughing for an hour and a half is somewhat preposterous. But UHF is so balls-out absurd, so relentless in its physical comedy and so broad in its parody of low-budget local TV, the movie succeeds where it shouldn’t. It helps that ‘Weird Al’ is supported by a pre-Seinfeld Michael Richards, pre-Nanny Fran Drescher and pre-wingnut Victoria Jackson. Yes, it’s a stupid movie. But it’s also hilarious.
