YMMV: UHF

  • Americans Hate Tingle: Apparently Indians don't find the action-movie depiction of their former spiritual leader in the spoof trailer "Gandhi II" all that funny...
  • Billing Displacement: Most posters and other promotional materials would give one the impression that Victoria Jackson's role is significantly greater than Michael Richards'.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: As Raul tries to teach poodles how to fly, we see a pile of dead poodles outside his apartment building.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Television broadcasts of the film edit out the bit in the "Crazy Eddie's Used Cars" commercial where he threatens to club a baby seal if he doesn't make a sale in the next hour. However, they keep the part where the young child gets blasted across the room by a fire hose.
  • Ear Worm: "U.H.F.", the movie's title theme.
    • "Welcome to the Fun Zone."
  • Fridge Brilliance: Concerning the Like Reality Unless Noted entry on the main page: Everybody wants to be on Stanley's show, because he's Crazy Awesome; the FCC probably was more concerned about Fletcher's corruption by the end of the movie; the "Satan" seen on Town Talk could have just been a guy dressed up; nobody probably watched Philo's show (or took it seriously enough to actually try and make plutonium at home); it's possible that Stanley or someone else hired Raul (in an earlier draft, he was supposed to bring the package in when George and Bob arrive at U-62, as a mailman, but due to Trinidad Silva's death, that had to be dropped); the adult content was clearly scheduled for the watershed; and the shop teacher probably wasn't in his right mind to begin with.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: On the DVD, release in 2002, Al praises Michael Richards by saying "You could turn a camera on him and tell him to go nuts for two minutes." Four years later, Richards did exacly that.
  • Heartwarming in Hindsight: The scene where Bob reveals that U62 is number one in the ratings, thoroughly stunning George. 25 years, almost to the day, after this film was released, Weird Al's 2014 release Mandatory Fun would be his first number one album in Real Life.
  • He Really Can Act: Subverted. Al knew he was not an especially good actor and asked that the studio hire him an acting coach so he'd "suck a little bit less." His stone-faced performing in the opening Indiana Jones parody prove that they were not wasted.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Watch Raul's Wild Kingdom and tell me he's not eerily prescient of Cesar Milan.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Yankovic probably feared the viewers would have seen Fletcher as this had he gotten arrested for kidnapping so soon after the homeless man revealed his role in Fletcher's downfall.
    • Fletcher's son Richard. He may be an incompetent suck up, but when you see how badly his father treats him it's hard not to feel a little sorry for him.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "NOTHING! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! STUPID! YOU SO STUPID!!!"
    • "YOU'RE FIRED! GET OUT!!!"
    • "SUPPLIES!"
    • "YOU GET TO DRINK FROM THE FIRE HOSE! OPEN WIDE!"
  • Nausea Fuel: Emo Phillips getting his thumb cut off and casually spewing blood all over the place. A couple of deleted scenes were even worse!
  • Nightmare Fuel: Philo's true form.
    • The effect was done by the same people behind Large Marge.
