    Great news!!! Both Oceans 11 and Harry Potter WS beat out their P&S alter-egos. This is a huge victory considering the large family appeal that Harry Potter will have.

    We still have a long way to go in our battle, but at least we're winning a few victories here and there.

    UHF is probably going to make more money on video than the original theatrical release.

    Yes, UHF could make more money than in its original theatrical run...but it still sucks.

    I can't believe I saw it in the theater - chalk that one up to youth.

    UHF may not be cinematic history or anything, but its funny. according to weird al, it bombed because it came out the same summer as honey i shrunk the kids. i personally think it bombed because its not that great. i was too young to see it in the theater, but eh... if i saw it for $9.99 id buy it in a heart beat.

    UHF is one of my favorite films. I can't say how happy I am it's finally on DVD, and to see it actually make the top 10 has got to mean something. Never have I seen such a great lowbrow movie even crack the VideoScan top 20. Great news indeed! [​IMG]

    UHF is hilarious and one of my favorites as well. It's a great movie with a great DVD and it's top 10 entry is well-deserved.

    Great bits from the commentary:
    -Crispin Glover wanted to play Crazy Ernie but they went with someone else. They wanted him to play Philo but Glover would only play Ernie.
    -listening to Michael Richards (who is in part of the commentary) thanking Al for his big break was priceless!
