Format: Audio CD
After the middle-of-the-road Even Worse, Al made a movie, UHF, now a cult 80's film, and the soundtrack to it shows him back in form. How many hours did Mr. Yankovic lie awake thinking about how to incorporate the lyrics to the Beverly Hillbillies song to Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing". Mark Knopfler was generous enough, as he also did the guitar for this song!
"Gandhi II" is a TV trailer from the UHF movie. "Next week, on U62, he's back, and this time he's mad. No more Mr. Passive Resistance" and it's done to the melody from Shaft by Isaac Hayes.
"Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from A Planet Near Mars." Yes, sounds like the title of a bad 1950's UFO movie and if you ever heard "Slime Creatures From Outer Space" from Dare To Be Stupid, you get the idea what kind of song it is. I wonder if Al had a pet hamster and was staring at intently enough to come up with a wacky song. Hamsters the size of a blimp, who play electric guitars, and "think the whole stinkin' world is their exercise wheel"... wow!
"Isle Thing" incorporates a TV song with Tone-Loc's "Wild Thing" and Al's mimicking Mr. Loc's voice is simply funny. "I'm watching that Gilligan's Isle Thing" is the tag line to the chorus. His commentary on the various characters is great, as he says that Ginger and Maryann could've used some funky cold medina. And on the Professor, "If he's so fly, then tell me why he couldn't build a lousy raft?" Hasta la vista, little buddy!
Polka time, and this time it's all Rolling Stones song.

This thirteen track album is one of "Weird Al's greatest masterpieces. For those of you who haven't seen the film you get a few hilarious short sound bites in the form of tracks Gandhi II, Fun Zone (music from Stanley Spadowski's funhouse) and Spatula City. Beverly Hillbillies (parody of Money for Nothing) film clip from the movie along with Let Me Be Your Hog and the UHF song from the credits are the only other tracks actually from the UHF movie. They are all songs you will want to here over and over again.
Other great parodies on this album are Isle Thing (parody of Wild Thing) a song about getting addicted to Gilligan's Island, She Drive's Like Crazy (parody of She Drive's Me Crazy) which sounds just like the Fine Young Cannibals and the ode to manufactured meat entitled Spam (parody of REM's Stand).
Non parodies by Al are also brilliant with the classic tale of American travel track entitled The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota giving you six minutes and forty-eight seconds of a family's three day journey to the glorious huge majestic sphere. Directions to the Twine Ball aren't entirely accurate if like many you decide to make a pilgrimage to the Twine Ball in Darwin but you'll laugh all the way there if playing this album.
Buy this album. You won't be disappointed.

UHF was a great movie, and Al topped it off by putting out a great soundtrack. It was great to hear the songs from the movie, such as Money For Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies and UHF, but Al also brought in new parodies and originals to complete this album. He's at his best in the originals. Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from a Planet Near Mars has a lot of funny moments, as do Generic Blues and The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota. For parodies, Al is seldom funnier than he is in Spam. It is truly an indicator of Al's awesome abilites. This album, just like its corresponding movie, is sadly underrated.

"Weird Al Yankovic is the most succesful recording comedian in history, and this album prooves it. I recently saw the movie "UHF", and while I have to live with the fact that critics called it a flop, I call it a cult classic. So far, off the soundtrack, I've heard "Spam", "Money For Nothing/The Beverly Hillbillies", and of course "UHF", and I consider them all my favorites. I want to get the soundtrack, as well as the new album, Running with Scissors, and I would like to wish Al a n early happy birthday. 40 years old. Un-b-lieve-able.

As others before me have said, this cd is awesome. Its humor is infectious for those who have seen the movie and those that haven't alike. Songs from the movie include UHF and Money For Nothing, while the other tracks are pure Al hilarity. Fan of the Stones? You'll love Hot Rocks Polka. Or into Tone Loc? Try Isle Thing. And for the true Harry Chappen fan's out there.. remember 30,000 lbs of Bananas? Weird Al perfectly mimics the rhythm of that infamous voyage with his own Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota. True fun for all types.

Disclaimer -- I write this review without having seen the movie "UHF" for myself. I own the movie, but have not yet had a chance to watch it. Still, I've been making it a mission to listen to every "Weird Al" CD (or at least his albums that aren't compilations), and "UHF: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and Other Stuff" was next on the list as his sixth album. I figured that I could still enjoy the music without having seen the movie, and that even if it wasn't considered one of his better albums, I could still find something to enjoy in it. Even his mediocre albums have at least two or three songs that are hilarious and fun.

I have to agree that this isn't one of Al's better albums, and there are a few bits that don't make sense out of the context of the movie. But I still had a lot of fun listening to it, and there are a few songs on this album that I love, including one that I'd rank among his best.

Word of warning to those wanting the movie's orchestral score -- there's only one instrumental track on this album, "Fun Zone," and it's written by Al himself instead of the film's composer. It's still a fun and upbeat number, but if you're looking for the actual score, you won't find it here. (I don't even know if it's available, sadly...)

There are only four parodies on this album, but all are enjoyable to listen to. My favorite of these parodies would have to be "She Drives Like Crazy," his take on Fine Young Cannibals' "She Drives Me Crazy." His parody is very stylistically similar to the original, save some comedic engine and tire-squealing sounds. The other parodies are pretty fun as well, and focus on two of his favorite parody subjects -- TV and food.
