I really do feel Jim Carey deserved at least an Oscar nomination for his performance...Man on the Moon is fascinating, really well acted and really well directed.

The main problem with this film though is the running time -- it's too short.
September 27, 2007
A teeming, fast-paced spin through a particularly strange show-biz life.
June 24, 2006
We're constantly kept guessing as to what's real or false. Intriguing.

Carrey gets inside Kaufman's skin.
December 6, 2005
Whether you like the film will probably depend on whether you thought Kaufman was funny the first time.

Forman makes this a thematic sequel to Amadeus, focusing on a misunderstood genius whose commitment to artistic vision came before acceptance, popularity, and his loved ones.

Not everyone knows Andy Kaufman, but the world knows Jim Carrey. Soon it will know more about Kaufman's unique style of humor.
July 15, 2003
postulates that Kaufman was the consummate actor, someone who stayed 'on' even in his offstage life, to the point of losing whatever personality he had. It's an intriguing theory, but it doesn't always make for a smooth viewing experience...

Will appeal to Kaufman fans and Carrey fans alike, and even if you're not a fan of either, you can't deny the intriguing quality of this strange story and the skill with which it's told.

An affectionate but unvarnished portrait through the eyes of people who loved Andy...
September 10, 2002
Carrey's portrayal is dead-on, with all the little mannerisms and voice inflections.
June 18, 2002
As drama, it's a near miss. Yet as an introduction -- or a reminder -- of a singular talent, it has its appeal.
June 5, 2002
What the story lacks in depth, it at least partially makes up for in pop culture kitsch.
December 10, 2001
A fascinating, deeply entertaining film about a man who was impossible to define.

Makes you unsure whether you have learned more (or absolutely nothing) about this mysterious and undoubtedly talented man.
February 27, 2001
Both wildly entertaining and strangely moving.

Carrey is brilliant in the role, dissolving without a trace into his character. Maybe this will get him that academy award for best actor which eluded him last year for some reason.
