    Weird: The Al Yankovic Story is an intriguing movie for all the right reasons. Released on The Roku Channel of all places, it reminded me of Elvis and Blonde but to the extreme because you don’t know what to believe and what not to believe. As the self-proclaimed, unexaggerated true story about the greatest musician of our time, the movie takes more than a few liberties with the truth but it fits the character. Even the ending of the movie, where Weird Al is gunned down at an awards ceremony is played for laughs.

    The number of “cameos” in the movie are hilarious to watch and the story of his relationship with his father (which may or may not be true) is truly poignant.

    For something really offbeat, it’s pretty entertaining.
