Short version: WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY is like finding a diamond in a dung heap.
Slightly longer version: this movie shouldn’t work, but it does. It’s bizarre and constantly on the verge of totally going off the rails, but somehow it never quite crashes. Some people online are asking whether or not WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY should have been released in theaters, but I don’t know if that was really ever on the table. I mean, this is a flicks for hardcore Weird Al fans. There are more of us than you think, but are there enough to justify a full theatrical release?
PS: I’m surprised that Madonna isn’t suing.
