About the Movie

Based on a true story, Jim Carrey stunningly portrays the late Andy Kaufman - considered the most innovative, eccentric and enigmatic comic of his time - in Man on the Moon. "Jim Carrey is extraordinary" says The New York Post. "Jim Carrey may be a better Andy Kaufman than Andy Kaufman" writes Newsweek. Also starring Danny DeVito as Kaufman's manager, Courtney Love as the woman Andy falls in love with and Paul Giamatti as his best friend. You'll stand up and cheer for Carrey in one of the year's most entertaining movies!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A brilliant, maniacally funny, and dizzying experience. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Rotten: All the audience is left with is the impression of a thoroughly obnoxious man you'd never want to meet in real life. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A brilliant, almost terrifying impersonation. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jan 22, 2006

Fresh: As drama, it's a near miss. Yet as an introduction -- or a reminder -- of a singular talent, it has its appeal. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Dec 14, 2008

Genius playing genius directed by genius

If you love Jim Carey's deeper comedic side,
if you want a comedy that keeps you guessing and on your toes,
if you liked "Amadeus" or "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest",
or if you have no idea who Andy Kaufman was (and who does really?)

...then this is an absolute must see.

Thank you very much

Amazingly touching

I love this movie. Watching it, I love Jim Carrey more than ever and admire his acting. I wish there were more comedians like Andy in the real world.
