Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story ★★★★★

No idea what more you could possibly want from this movie. I mean, it shouldn’t even exist, how is it this funny? A parody trailer expanded to a feature over a decade later, shot in 18 days for a streaming service and it’s somehow the most joke dense movie I’ve seen in years? Like, I think this is probably on par with The Naked Gun, but I can’t think of much this century that matches it (maybe Barb and Starr, but that’s probably it).

It outsmarted me by making the dumbest possible choice at every turn. Evan Rachel Wood was unbelievable, got way more Toby Huss than I ever expected. I hemmed and hawed over the star rating but fuck it why not five? Have five!

The face Abby made when I informed her that Dr. Demento was a real person was a fun bonus.
