I don't know if anyone knew about this already, but I found this thing:
This is the Region 4 release of UHF, and you should not buy it.
I'm really not kidding when I say don't buy this. If I didn't buy this from a real retail outlet in a real shopping mall in Australia, I'd assume this is some sort of Hong Kong bootleg. Which is still a possibility, but that's beside the point.
You know how the Aussie release of The Ultimate Video Collection was pretty much just the videos and not much more? Well, that had more features than this sack of smurf. It had scene selection. It had an audio menu. It had subtitles. It had a FREAKING MAIN MENU. This... This thing doesn't have any of that. A DVD released in 2010 (According to the back of the box) doesn't even have a freaking menu.
Oh, but that's not all. No way. The actual movie itself? Just a straight rip from the American DVD release. How do I know this? Well, for one thing, the title that comes up is just UHF, and not The Vidiot From UHF, as is common for films that have their names changed over here. (Airplane! to Flying High!, for instance.) That might be nitpicking, and it was until about the third act.
You know the scene where Stanley's been getting away from the thugs, and he's just finished putting the chairs against the door, only for a guy to come bursting through the window? Well, that scene plays, and then it plays again. And the second time, Al in his current look with a red shirt on pops up from the bottom of the screen says something inaudible and then disappears. This happens again when Teri meets up with George at the fundraiser. The scene plays, then it plays again, with Current Al popping up from the bottom of the screen, saying something inaudible and then leaving.
This is... terrible. Pretty much the worst DVD release that I have ever seen.
