Great collection of masterful parodies
20 October 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a collection of videos that should be experienced by any fan of Weird Al Yankovic. It has stuff dating back to 1983, and as recent as 1996, and in addition to twenty videos, it also has the(albeit sans actual credits, apparently due to legal issues) opening credit sequence of Spy Hard, for which he did the theme(and he performs during said sequence). With a running time of one hour and fifteen minutes, this has a good amount of videos. The technical qualities are top-notch, both sound and image are crisp, and the menu layout and interface are well-done. Al is an expert at spoofing... movies and commercials are amongst his source materials, but he really shines when he does parodies of songs, bands, music videos and song styles. You'll never look at Madonna the same again after watching Like a Surgeon. Michael Jackson will never seem quite the same after Al's portrayal in Fat. And how about UHF, the theme of the movie, the video of which he manages to include a dozen or so different bands and/or singers? The utterly random imagery found in Dare to be Stupid should garner a reaction from even the most humorless of individuals. His material is silly, goofy, clever, bizarre and just plain funny. He seldom stoops to sexual comedy, he hardly swears at all(and never just to cuss), and save for the occasional violent imagery and themes(which really aren't *that* bad), his stuff can be enjoyed by almost anyone who finds parody entertaining. His material also shows serious research and intelligence going into writing his songs... quite often, he gets to understand a time, a subculture or a people before he makes a funny song out of them. Granted, not all of the gags work, at times, the effects could be better and some of the videos are now dated(but Jurassic Park is still funny, and so are the others), and his more recent efforts aren't all good(I'm looking at you, Gump... although he has since proved to still have the knack for this stuff, with, for example, White and Nerdy)... but the vast majority is just golden. Nod at the truths found in I Lost on Jeopardy. Experience the bitterness of One More Minute, the anti-Christmas quality of Christmas at Ground Zero, clearly thought up by a man who probably(being Jewish) never got to celebrate the holiday, even though it's all around. But most of all, enjoy. I recommend this to any fan of Weird Al Yankovic and similar, whether or not they've seen any or all of the videos before. 8/10
