A must for Yankovic fans
4 February 2010 | by ludovica36See all my reviews

I was keen enough to see this to come to the OC Fair from the UK and I am glad I did. Educationally speaking I did indeed learn 100% more than I had previously known about the structure and working of the brain. The script was witty and "typical Al" and it was fun to spot and identify the people delivering the "vox pop" questions and celebrity cameos. I have to admit I was less entertained by the Billy the Brain and Norm the Owl characters than I was by Al himself, but overall, the main draw was the original song which I managed to memorise. I wish this song would become commercially available at some point. The film was very enjoyable, and coupled with the pre-show shorts and the exhibit of Brain Facts; (many of which I later recognised as standard Ripley's Believe It Or Not fodder) it was all an enjoyable experience especially when viewed alongside other friends who had come to California for this event, including a friend from Buenos Aires. All in all as a complete package it gets 10/10. I understand there will be a repeat showing at the 2010 OC Fair and I will be coming back to the USA to see it again as well as to see Al in concert
