Shout! Factory Set To Release UHF: 25th Anniversary Edition And The Compleat Al!

Weird Al’s legion of fans have reason to celebrate when Shout! Factory unleashes not only the 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray for UHF but The Compleat Al on November 11th!

Released in theaters back in 1989, UHF beat the odds and became one of the highest grossing films of all time…

…at least in the hearts of all of Al’s fans. Sadly in my neck of the woods the film played literally for two days in movie theaters before it was pulled and found a much more accepting audience at the local drive-in. As usual with a Shout! Factory releases there is worthy extras included:
2014 San Diego Comic-Con Panel
Audio Commentary
Deleted Scenes
Behind-the-Scenes Footage
Music Video
Production Stills
Easter Eggs
Promotional Materials
Reversible Cover Art

The Compleat Al - Shout! Factory
The Compleat Al is “The Amazing And Almost-True Life Story Of A Rock And Roll Legend”, a mockumentary on Al’s life and musical career. I can remember back in my youth renting the VHS tape for this and spending the weekend watching it over and over and over again. The Shout! Factory DVD release also includes:
Eight Weird Al video classics:
“Ricky”
“I Love Rocky Road”
The award-winning “Eat It”
“I Lost on Jeopardy”
“This Is the Life”
“Like a Surgeon”
“One More Minute”
“Dare to Be Stupid”

So be sure to hop on over to the Shout! Factory site and pre-order your copies today!

  1. Awesome! I’m going to get both of these when they come out. I’ve got a bootleg rip of a VHS tape of the Complete Al, and I’d love to upgrade it. I too remember fondly renting this tape from a local video store, many…many weekends. I think the owner was about ready to just give it to us. And I remember seeing UHF in the theatre when it came out.
    I’m looking forward to showing it to my kids. They might not care, but who knows….after all, they do have my sense of humor.
