Comments: I was hoping for more Todd.

I don't know anything about this dude beyond "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" which Todd produced. Apparently, Meat was in FIGHT CLUB. I know, and care, even less about Meat's songwriter Jim Steinman, although I LOL'd when someone described him as a guy who listens to seven hour operas and therefore thinks a three minute intro to a pop song is economical.

There's something pathetically endearing about the doc/this guy. Cher is here. That tells you something.

Summary: Documentary featuring an intimate profile of American rock legend Meat Loaf, spanning from his childhood of domestic violence, through a decade of rejection by record companies to global fame, bust-ups and a major comeback. Features friends, family and fellow musicians offering a candid, gritty and humorous profile of the overweight bullied kid who became a music icon.
