Quite fun, if you like that sort of thing
3 August 2000 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

Weird Al Yankovic... either you love him or you hate him.

My sister cannot stand him, and she practically orders me to stop listening to him if I ever dare to do so in front of her. Then again, she is 23 and she cannot understand what the fuzz is about "Eat It". But my (older) friends cannot get enough of him!

Whenever we play a movie in my Home Theater, at least one song from the DVD is always played. Although his latest efforts (Gump, for example) lack the energy and creativity that his earlier works had (Like a Surgeon, Fat), he is quite a parody maker, and definitely talented, but in an odd sort of way.

If you liked Eat It, there is no way you can afford not to buy this little gem. It can bring back fond memories, and it is great to watch with a couple of friends (or as an introduction to raunchy comedies like American Pie).
