Never thought I'd say this, especially regarding a biopic of a comedian, but, could've used more wrestling.

A fair and enjoyable portrayal of the life and times of Andy Kauffman. At times, the difference between Jim Carrey and Andy is truly indistinguishable.

Commendable attempt at introducing modern audiences to Kaufman, but since I didn't really appreciate Kaufman's style of humour I often felt like I wanted to knee Carrey in the junk. Still, a decent biopic.

Man On The Moon is a thoughtful and respectful biography, made primarily thanks to the excellent and surprisingly subtle portrayal of Kaufman by Carrey. As the film quickly develops a rappour with the viewer, what at first appears as simple excentricities all become clear and you feel sympathy for the often understood character trying entertain onlookers that annoyingly skim across the surface of a deeper individual. Judging by the performance, it seems to be something quite close to Carrey.

So bland. Carey accurately mimics highlights of Kaufman's public life, but there is no further depth. The film explores nothing and so becomes mere mimicry in the format of a very conventional biopic. The unconventional subject provided an opportunity for playing with unconventional structure - why did they not take that opportunity?
