The story of the life and career of eccentric avant-garde comedian, Andy Kaufman.



Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
What is most wonderful about Man on the Moon, a very good film, is that it remains true to Kaufman's stubborn vision.
USA Today - Mike Clark
A movie of moments whose ultimate legacy may be to get Carrey out of formula comedies forever.
New York Daily News - Jami Bernard
Carrey gives an otherworldly, possessed performance as Kaufman.
San Francisco Examiner - Wesley Morris
A fascinating, sometimes profound curiosity.
Portland Oregonian - Shawn Levy
Strictly texture, a romp over the surfaces of Andy Kaufman's life with not much insight into its core.
