Jim Carrey delivers a magnificent performance in this biopic of Andy Kaufman, an unorthodox comedian who found fame on the TV sitcom Taxi, before cutting his comedy career short to focus on being an entertainer in the world of wrestling.
Show-stopping Carrey was the perfect choice to play the attention-hogging Kaufman, while Courtney Love, Danny DeVito & others provide great supporting performances.
