TIFF Review: “Weird”

WEIRD is a comedic take on the life of Weird Al Yankovic co-written by the man himself and director Eric Appel. Al is played hilariously by Daniel Radcliffe and his mother and father are played by Julianne Nicholson and Toby Huss, respectively. In this heightened telling of his life story, his girlfriend is Madonna (Evan Rachel Wood) and he’s broken The Beatles’ records. I definitely recommend it for the feel-good and hysterically funny film of the year. By the end, you’ll be wanting to take Al’s advice and “…be as weird as you want to be.”
