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...
  • 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."
  • 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.
  • Memetic Mutation: "STUPID! YOU SO STUPID!!!"
    • "YOU'RE FIRED! GET OUT!!!"
    • "SUPPLIES!"
    • "YOU GET TO DRINK FROM THE FIRE HOSE! OPEN WIDE!"
  • Nightmare Fuel: Philo's true form.
    • The effect was done by the same people behind Large Marge.
  • Older Than They Think: In the post-analog world, this is pretty much the last place that even mentions UHF frequencies.
