Funny little score

(3 out of 5 stars)
"I don't know the circumstances that led Danny Elfman to only compose the main titles and ending selection for this soundtrack, but his compositions are quite fun. Definitely a switch from his dark stuff, it harkens back to his Oingo Boingo days, with a twist of Caribbean. The rest of the album is okay, listenable, but nothing to rave about. It's fun and bouncy in the style of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and Back to School. (Sheffer has conducted some of Elfman's scores, so I think it has rubbed off on him.) I got it cheap, and I would say try to find it on sale, unless you're one of those If-It's-Elfman-I've-Got-to-Have-It people."
