Ends up asking more questions than it answers.
July 15, 2003
More of an illustrated rsum than a character study, entertaining but seldom insightful.
December 2, 2002
The problem is that while Kaufman's life story has its required quota of bizarre-yet-true events, it's doomed to failure as mainstream entertainment because Kaufman wasn't terribly likeable as a person.
November 7, 2002
Andy Kaufman biopic is hollow, even with Jim Carrey's chameleonlike performance.
August 21, 2002
Presents the life of a madcap trickster who desperately wanted to be the biggest star in the world.
March 22, 2002
Superficially clever yet profoundly shallow.

It never generates the emotional impact that a great biography needs.
February 14, 2001
We never really got to see the 'real' Kaufman, aside from a soft spoken oddball hell bent on just one more practical prank on the world.
January 1, 2000
All the audience is left with is the impression of a thoroughly obnoxious man you'd never want to meet in real life.
January 1, 2000
That's not a movie, it's a timeline.
January 1, 2000
Has all the emotional depth of a TV Movie of the Week.

Maybe Forman and the writers were paralyzed by the thought that Andy might, true to tabloid rumor, still be alive. It would be great if he did turn up on TV, pop his eyes and, in his Latka voice, call the movie a mistake.
January 1, 2000
Uninspired and relatively clueless.
January 1, 2000
Enormously underwritten and unfunny.
January 1, 2000
Ultimately disappoints because it doesn't share its subject's sense of the outrageous.
January 1, 2000
Man on the Moon captures the mood of Kaufman's stand-up act while paying loving tribute to the late comic.
January 1, 2000
Kaufman, whatever you think of him, deserves better.
January 1, 2000
You can learn just as much by watching the pair of documentaries about the comedian that are continually rerun on Comedy Central.
