What I expected was a comical story about a man who wrote humorous parodies of famous songs but what I got was so much more. This biography detailing the life of Weird Al told a story of triumph, the highs, lows, and troubles that one man faced pursuing his dreams or something like that.

Finally, a biopic with no embellishments or exaggerations! Just the plain, honest truth from beginning to end. I thought it was delightfully and stupidly fun. Lots of laughs up to and past the ending, even. I'm loving Daniel Radcliffe's career choices. Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna was perfect

I'll be honest I wasn't aware Al Yankovic existed, never really heard a song from him. I have no idea if some of the events are true or an absolute parody of reality but the last third of the movie is clearly fiction. It's not from my generation but I had an absolute blast of a fun time with this! Pretty much everyone is perfectly cast; Daniel Radcliffe's really got it! He's hilarious, weird and emotional when needed. There's so many fun cameos throughout and they're all well done and relevant to the story. The humor is well-written there's lots of funny and clever one-liners. There's probably a few jokes I didn't get but if you're someone who lived during the 70s-80s there's lots of in-jokes. I think it's actually a movie for all ages you don't really need to be familiar with Weird Al to enjoy it!

Weird Al brings us a suitably wacky satire of the sleazy tell-all rock’n’roll biopic, while also having some fun with his own squeaky-clean public image. In _Weird_, we learn all about his abusive childhood, his secret obsession with polka parties and Hawaiian shirts, his fiery encounter with Pa More

The overall concept here makes sense. Weird Al is known for parody. So naturally, his biopic film should be a parody of the entire biopic genre, rather than some ho-hum, by the numbers biopic. Unfortunately, as a parody target, the biopic genre didn't work quite as well for me as the top billboard h More

Kinda refreshing, this brand of comedy that’s highly silly but still pretty sharp is sorely missed in movies nowadays, it feels like a quaint throwback. It’s very _Austin Powers_ and _Monty Python_-esque, if that’s your thing you’ll probably dig it. The casting’s pretty much perfect, I’m More
