Man on the Moon

Continuing the McMains Family Andy Kaufman media series, last night we watched Man on the Moon, the story of Kaufman’s life with Jim Carrey playing the starring role. Carrey did a super job with Kaufman’s character, bringing him to life in a very convincing way. The movie version of his life did skimp on some of the details present in Lost in the Funhouse, making Andy’s charm far more obvious while glossing over some of the less pleasant aspects of his personality. The sheer joy of the Milk and Cookies scene was a marvel.
