    I heard not too long ago on the radio that the cult classic film UHF with Wierd Al is supposed to be out on DVD this year. Has anyone else heard this, and if so does anyone have a release date? I don't know about you but I could watch that film over and over again, something about Spatula City just get's me all giddy inside. Let me know if you have any info.
    Peace
    Eve

    How's this for news! I don't know what his source is, but hopefully it's accurate. I'm also looking forward to this favorite!

    YIPPY! I do hope that is true. I don't know about you but I think that wheel of fish thing is all sorts of hillarious.

    Good news. There's been talk of this for awhile, but last I heard, they weren't sure if it was going to be an SE or not. I'm sure they could do some great stuff with this.

    I wonder if Michael Richards will be involved at all.

    It's funny because this rumor started making the rounds last August and has just surfaced again over at Digital Bits (via Al's site).

    Seems pretty true. There certainly was a lot of pressure on the situation and Al is pretty open to his fans. I've heard many stories of people requesting it from him at concerts, signings, etc.

    Sounds like a nice disc if Al is getting to put together a bunch of extras.

    His concert DVD had some nice extra bits on it that are fun, like those mock versions of 50's information films for kids.

    Thank God it'll be an SE and not a bare-bones (although I would've bought it none the less)! [​IMG]

    Excellent! [​IMG]
    UHF was filmed in my home town!
    Trivia: My brother's karate instructor was one of the guys who jumped out of the closet and yelled "Supplies!" (with rakes, etc., in hand...)

    Yeah! This is great great news. I've been itching to see Conan the Librarian again.[​IMG] I'm glad that Al seems to be pretty involved in the features on the disc, it should turn out great.

    Weird Al has been said to be a serious DVD fan. One of his recent TV specials (I think Behind The Music) shows his home theater in the background....with a dozen remotes on the coffee table!

    I think he produced the concert DVD (There's two hidden music video commentaries), so UHF should be great!

    I can't wait to ebay my EP speed VHS...good riddance!
