* HamAndCheese: Kevin [=McCarthy=] hadn't done many comic roles before, but he understood just how silly the movie is supposed to be and is clearly having every bit as much fun with it as everyone else. Weird Al says on the commentary that after nearly every take, [=McCarthy=] would instantly drop character and burst into laughter (and, presumably, start flossing bits of the scenery out of his teeth).

* ValuesResonance: [[http://www.gamesradar.com/weird-al-made-the-ultimate-analog-comedy-in-1989-and-its-still-perfect/ This incredibly heartfelt article]] from [=GamesRadar=] describes ''UHF'' as a precursor to all of the things that would eventually make Website/YouTube and web-based content so great: U62 celebrates, even ‘’encourages,'' the [[BeYourself exact kind of individual quirkiness]] that mainstream media is so opposed to, and can be seen as a safe haven for “otherness” where everyone shares a mutual respect for being themselves. Even the more questionable characters like Kuni and Noodles are treated with the utmost respect and are ''never'' used at the butt of a joke. George's solution to save the station by selling stock to the townspeople even reads as a primitive form of crowdfunding.
