Oddly enough, the page for UHF at the Showtime website doesn't state the Sexual Content. :confused:

It also has some things wrong on the Trivia page for UHF.

It says a kid can be heard saying, "Oh man, f*ck off!" in the background when Fletcher unplugs that clock! I can't hear that on mine! :wow:

But the "sexual content" rating is just stupid. Those few minor lines in Town Talk shouldn't constitute "sexual content."


Maybe it's Al's sizzling performance. :inlove: After all, he is the sexiest accordion playing rock n roll star in the known Universe.

There's also the "Broads don't belong in broadcasting" and "Don't call chicks broads" lines.

And that Celebrity Mud Wrestling can get pretty racey, that Gorbechav!

I listened to it and I heard "Oh man, come on!"

I know that there is "hell" in the movie twice.

Once when George says "Agh! Ah! I'm in hell!" on the answering machine.

Once when Stanley says "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!"

Actually, he says "Blow it out your ear."



Stanley says "these floors are as dirty as hell"

Weird Al never believed UHF deserved a PG-13 rating, but refused to allow cuts that would have earned the film a PG. Among the scenes the MPAA wanted cut were the 'flying poodles' and part of 'Conan the Librarian,' which features a guy getting (bloodlessly) split in two for having an overdue book.

Guess that explains the PG-13 thing.

People look for things like that in films. Remember all those idiotic rumors about the Disney animators putting hidden foul messages into the Lion King and Aladdin?

I think many of us have a tendency to "hear" things that aren't actually there sometimes. Up until the first time I saw the video for DTBS, which wasn't until the release of the Video Library (1992), I thought that the line in the song was "You can just give up the sh*t." In fact, I would bet that that was a commonly misheard lyric and that is why he put that particular line on the screen during the video. Sorry, that was off topic!

So, UHF ratings...

All that info -- as it says on the top of the Showtime page listed above -- comes from the Internet Movie Database [www.imdb.com] on its Trivia Page for UHF. And that info can be submitted by anybody. As a result, the info needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Our own Dave has e-mailed imdb several times to get Al errors corrected before. This boo-boo must have just been entered there.

Hey, Dave! Got your ears on? Ya think we need another e-mail for this one??
