Rock video parodist "Weird Al" Yankovic stars in his own feature film as the manager of a low-budget TV station, who hits it big with his truly bizarre and unconventional programs (including the hilarious "Gandhi II"). But mean old J.R. Fletcher (Kevin McCarthy), owner of one of the biggest TV stations in town, doesn't like the competition. He decides to use every devious and dirty trick imaginable to shut down Yankovic's operation.

Funnier than you'd expect and if you're a fan of Yankovic's Doctor Demento sense of humor, you'll love this. It's not perfect, but there are plenty of great moments, many of them provided by Yankovic himself. But some of the best moments come from hilarious early performances by Fran Drescher (The Nanny) as the station's newscaster, and Michael Richards (Seinfeld) as a janitor-turned-TV star. Not great, but good enough to go out and rent.
