MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –
1) Andy Kaufman is larger than life character and his real life is more interesting than the movie.
2) Jim Carrey did justice to the role. His Elvis impersonation and “Mighty Mouse Theme (Here I Come to Save the Day)” are top notch.
2) R.E.M. song

 

Cons –
1) More of a documentary than a character study
