      Suitably silly, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story spoofs the standard biopic formula with all the good-natured abandon fans will expect.

      Audience Says

      Fast-paced, funny, and star-studded, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story is the not-quite-biopic that "Weird Al" fans have been waiting for.

      A.A. Dowd Digital Trends Walk Hard got to a lot of this stuff 15 years ago, and with much more precision. May 2, 2023 Full Review Craig Mathieson The Age (Australia) It’s a collection of sketches where the whole is less than the pieces. Mar 2, 2023 Full Review Scott Tobias The Reveal (Substack) A goofy made-up plot about Al’s relationship with Madonna (Evan Rachel Wood) sends the film off on an unfunny tangent from which it never returns. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 19, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The film's honesty is inspiring, touching on such easily verifiable occurrences as his love affair with Madonna, his gun battle with drug lord Pablo Escobar, and the fact that “Eat It” was an original composition which Al wrote before MJ penned “Beat It.” Rated: 3/4 Dec 26, 2023 Full Review Douglas Davidson Elements of Madness ... "Weird" is a celebration of Yankovic by playing loose with the truth and essentially functioning as a parody of every biography released in cinema history and any that may come next. Rated: 4/5 Dec 8, 2023 Full Review Lee Zumpe Tampa Bay Newspapers It’s campy and overtly silly. It is precisely what one would expect from Yankovic. Oct 26, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Eddie M Hilarious mockumentary/parody film whether or not you're a fan of Weird Al Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Audience Member Didn't help that I went into it not knowing it was a spoof, initially I was like geez this seem far fetched, and of course as the movie went on realised that none of this could possibly have happened. Possibly not my kind of humour, wasn't any real LOL moments for me or any strong emotion other then curiosity as to what his earlier life was actually like since the movie didn't answer that. I rate it moderate, but great, not bad but an easy watch Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/13/24 Full Review John T. H one of the greatest music artists ever! gone too soon... 1959-1985 RIP Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/12/24 Full Review Audience Member Hilarious movie, one of the funniest movies I’ve seen in a while. If you’re a fan of Weird Al you will especially appreciate this movie. There could not be a better movie about Weird Al, it’s perfect in every way. A spoof of a spoof. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/25/24 Full Review DeSaRai Daniel Radcliffe is excellent in this role! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review E.W. S This movie would have been 5/5 stars but they never told the audience what they made at the factory. Boo! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/29/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
