“Weird Al” Yankovic has been writing and performing song parodies since 1976. But he only made one feature-length movie — for good reason.
“UHF” did not do well at the box office when it was released in 1989. It made $6.1 million on a $5 million budget. But in the years since, it has become a must-watch for any kid discovering the joys of “Weird Al” and a cult classic for geeks of all ages around the world.
You should definitely watch “UHF” before you listen to the discussion portion of this week’s episode; it’s available to rent or buy on Amazon, iTunes, Vudu and Google Play.
This is the Season 3 finale of Giant Geek vs. Mega n00b, but we’ll only be off for a month or so. Join us later in the summer as we kick off Season 4 with a discussion of “The Music Man.” To make sure you don’t miss it, subscribe on iTunes or Google Play Music and like our page on Facebook.
See you in a few weeks!
