Tune in, turn on, drop out, because UHF is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: UHF is the definition of a cult classic, a movie so odd and off-kilter that you have to wonder how it got greenlit in the first place. A bad movie buoyed up by the talent and enthusiasm of the cast, UHF remains infinitely quotable twenty five years after failing to perform at the box office.

This movie contains:

Red Snapper. (Very tasty.)
