References and parodies are pretty dated but film does hit its targets more than misses with quite a bit of quotable dialogue. Juvenile and low brow sure but worth a few chuckles. Richards quite fun here as Stanley Spadowsky. ...drink from the firehose, 'you so stupid' ,and best of all SPATULA CITY! Empty headed fun.
Occupying Revenge of the Nerds' headspace, & clearing further space for Office Space, this socialist fantasy takes Yankovic's music career's effortful humour & mixes in the lust for revenge peculiar to angry nerds. Seinfeld guy is a weak choice for charismatic mascot, but Yankovic's rough charm almost saves UHF from its own eagerness to please. He's a shave & haircut away from looking like a poor woman's Gosling.
