Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A brilliant, maniacally funny, and dizzying experience.
Rotten: All the audience is left with is the impression of a thoroughly obnoxious man you'd never want to meet in real life.
Fresh: A brilliant, almost terrifying impersonation.
Fresh: As drama, it's a near miss. Yet as an introduction -- or a reminder -- of a singular talent, it has its appeal.
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
One of Jim Carry best films go buy it or rent it do it now
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.
