UHF is a 1989 American comedy film starring "Weird Al" Yankovic, David Bowe, Fran Drescher, Victoria Jackson, Kevin McCarthy, Michael Richards, Gedde Watanabe, Billy Barty, Anthony Geary, Emo Philips and Trinidad Silva, to whose memory the film is dedicated. The film was directed by Jay Levey, Yankovic's manager, who also co-wrote the screenplay with him. It was released by Orion Pictures. It is now distributed by MGM. Yankovic stars as a shiftless dreamer who stumbles into managing a low-budget television station and, surprisingly, finds success with his eclectic programming choices. He provokes the ire of a major network station that dislikes the competitive upstart. The title refers to the Ultra High Frequency analog television broadcasting band on which such low-budget television stations often were placed in the United States. UHF earned mixed to poor critical reviews. While only a modest success during its theatrical release, it became a cult film on home video. The film was distributed as The Vidiot from UHF in Australia, New Zealand and parts of Europe. On several parts of the DVD commentary Yankovic expresses distaste for the international title. He suggested The Vidiot when producers suggested that overseas audiences would not know what the title meant, and they combined the two titles. LESS
