Of course the only way to do a Weird Al Yankovic biopic is to do a parody of the typical biopic. Daniel Radcliffe is all in as the accordion-playing parody mastermind. From his early days with Doctor Demento (Rainn Wilson) to his torrid affair with Madonna (Evan Rachel Wood) it's all up there to see, including his battle with notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar and his life-long dream to make his hard-driving father proud. Oh, and don't forget the music from the classic My Bologna to Eat It (which Michael Jackson shamelessly parodied himself in "Beat It') to his magnum opus Amish Paradise - as Mr. Yankovic famously sang himself "This is the life!"

Wow, I can't believe this happened in real life.
