Pretty essential stuff
22 December 2005 | by (Austria, Vienna) – See all my reviews

Mr. Alfred Matthew Yankovic collects all of his 24 videos on this DVD, which is highly recommendable for anybody with a good sense of humor. At the height of his success (middle of the 80's to early 90's), Weird Al just could do nothing wrong. Most of the spoofs of hit songs/videos here are funny, creative and untouchable, but as time went by Al seemed to get a bit tired. He made less and less videos throughout the 90's and kind of lost track with what people really listen to. His parodies of "American Pie" ("The Saga Begins"), "It's All About The Benjamins" ("It's All About The Pentiums") and "Amish Paradise" ("Gangsta's Paradise") are only mildly entertaining and don't come close to Weird Al's earlier classics. The true, timeless gems here are "Like A Surgeon", "Eat It", "Fat", "Smells Like Nirvana", "You Don't Love Me Anymore", "Bedrock Anthem" and "Headline News". Those videos spoof the originals by Madonna, Michael Jackson, Nirvana, Extreme, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Crash Test Dummies with so much love and silliness, it's a delight. "Dare To Be Stupid" a charming homage to the cult group DEVO is another highlight on this DVD. But although Weird Al's glory days seem pretty much over, his lesser efforts such as "Bob" or "Living With A Hernia" are still pretty amusing and will get a chuckle or two out of you. If you like the wacky humor of movies like "The Naked Gun" (where Weird Al also makes an appearance) and/or kept track with the most popular songs of the last 20 years, you're going to have a hell of a good time with this collection.
