Storyline

"Meat Loaf" Aday is an overgrown Texas youngster, the son of a gentle woman dying of cancer and an alcoholic, abusive father. Tormented by his father and schoolmates over his size, he strikes out on his own after his mother's death, in an impossible task to prove himself to the world and to himself. A chance audition for a musical leads him to join forces with composer Jim Steinman, and together the two make music history with the operatic rock album "Bat Out of Hell." But the demons that drive Meat Loaf aren't assuaged by success, and eventually he must come to terms with them. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

The Greatest VH1 Movie Ever!
30 September 2000 | by (Wallkill, N.Y) – See all my reviews

When I saw the premiere of this movie, I didn't know who Meat Loaf was. But now I am a big fan. All of the actors looked like there real life counter-parts and where very good actors. I couldn't believe that the actor was lip-syncing some of the scenes. Believe me, the scenes that he did sing live sounded just like Meat Loaf. The only down side was that they had the character of Meat Loaf sing "Objects in the Rear View Mirror" 13 years before it came out. But if you brush that aside you really have an enjoyable movie on your hands.
