Amazing journey into a performer's mind.
This movie is an unique look at the crafting arts of an actor. The details about the transformation of Jim Carrey are something to behold. Of courser, people in the business will enjoy it a lot and in more subtle ways. But everybody can enjoy the expression of humanity here. The camera work is really amazing and it disappears between a very good direction. It really gives a deeper understanding at the fantastic original movie its based on. I think we can agree that it was that movie, and after it many more, that showed us the great actor Jim Carrey is. Of course many of us already knew that when we saw him in The Mask, Dumb and dumber, and Pet Detective.

The Very Serious Actor Behind the Comedian
11/23/17. Actually, this really was worth watching. This documentary shows how Carrey dissects Andy Kaufman in ways that good actors do as part of their craft - getting to the soul of their subject. However, it could have been shorter (with better editing), though it was long enough to convince you that Carrey is a lot more deeper than the characters he usually portrays for the sake of Comedy. Once you understand this disparity then you can understand why his comedy is a lot more meaningful than just trying to make the audience laugh but more about thinking about your own life in a different context. And, that is the purpose behind Art (in any form) anyway.

Interesting ego trip lacking real depth
I'd like to start by saying that I find the concept of the movie rather intriguing. Showing the parallelisms between two exceptional comedian who in their own way revolutionized the way we perceive comedy today. Having been a fan of both comedians I was looking forward to this movie. Unfortunately the movie couldn't stand up to my expectations. Firstly, one does barely get to see the transformation of Carrey. The viewer is thrown into the action accompanied by an almost preacher like Jim Carrey who retells his tale which is barely connected to what has happened back then. The movie is merely a documentary without any insight or revelation. Whilst the scenes are well chosen, if one knows the movie, the entire aim of this documentary is not obvious.

The documentary is rather a piece of art itself than it is a proper movie.

The meditation on what it means for you to be yourself
Jim and Andy was a fascinating documentary which discussed a very interesting concept of identity. It tells the story of Jim Carrey while playing the role of Andy Kaufman in the film: Man on the Moon. It was fascinating to see unfold as we follow Jim Carrey through this documentary.

Many lines from the interview with Jim really was relatable and thought provoking, the discussions on him losing his identity, and unable to be Jim again really puts lots of things in perspective for me, what makes me, me. What is to stop me from wholly becoming someone else, this is of course similar to the philosophical notion of the ship of Theseus and the philosophical discussions behind Truman Show and many of Carrey's films.

This film was a brilliant meditation of such philosophical concepts and an interesting and sympathetic experience peering into the mind of actors when they embody a role. There is another interesting point that stems from this idea, it is the fact that life is in and of itself a show, a performance, as Shakespeare quotes, "All the world's a stage." Jim Carrey's life and life experiences perfectly embodies and presents this notion and coming out of the documentary I think it was definitely inspiring and liberating. A brilliant watch.

A Master Of His Comedic Craft
Back in 1999, Jim Carrey starred in the movie "Man on the Moon", in which he portrayed the oddball comic Andy Kaufman. Nearly 20 years later, footage from the set of that movie has now surfaced, revealing a pseudo-documentary going on behind the scenes. The hook? For long portions of the shooting (no matter if the cameras were rolling or silent), Carrey was in character as Kaufman.

What "Jim & Andy" does, then, is intersperse clips of the real-life Kaufman, the "Man on the Moon" film, the documentary crew following Carrey, and the modern-day, heavily bearded Carrey commenting on it all. What results is a wonderfully wacky and almost surreal look at a man so deep in his acting craft that the lines between acting and reality blur to the point of being nonexistent.

After watching "Jim & Andy", there is no doubt (as if there was much before) that Carrey is one of the great comedic geniuses of all-time. His observations on comedy and life in general (including his own) are very well thought-out and inspiring. Clearly (and by his own admission) he has come a long, long way and changed his thoughts on life quite heavily from when he was "on top of the world" in the mid-1990s. It was nice to see him able to reflect on his career like that.

So, any fans of Carrey, comedy, or insightful documentaries in general will enjoy this one. It perfectly balances the right tone between funny/screwball, while also informative/inspirational. A great documentary that continues to keep the bloom on the Netflix rose.

I thought it was just okay
I was really looking forward to seeing this, because Man on the Moon is amongst my favourite movies of all time (definitely in my Top 20), and I was intrigued by the fact that, as we recently found out, Carrey "stayed in character" throughout the entire production process. I was curious to see how that all turned out. And even though it was interesting to see all the footage, and I could even relate to some of the things Jim said in his interview bits, but in the end there was no point, no message, nothing that we could learn from all of this (other than the fact that shooting Man on the Moon must have been a painful and exhausting experience for everyone involved). All in all, it was an okay documentary, I was never bored, but I expected something more, to be honest. Even possibly something revelatory, as I always thought there was much more to Jim Carrey than just his amazing on-screen talent. And maybe there still is, but this was not the documentary to reveal that to us.

Madness
The film covers Jim a lot more than Andy. It certainly makes an impact. They are both very complicated people and it becomes clear that if anyone was going to play Andy Kaufman it had to be Jim Carrey. He got about as close as anyone ever could.

In the interview sections Jim comes across charming and occasionally says some very profound and insightful things. The on set footage shows a very different person. He chose to approach the role as a hardcore method actor. Insisting on being called his characters names and never breaking character, even around Andy's family. Some of it is brutal and hard to watch. He is nothing short of an obnoxious, unhinged, tempormental nightmare. Especially when he plays Tony. There are many times when I feel sorry for the crew and his costars. Outside of the craft of acting there is a serious case to be made for Carrey being committed. He seems legitimately insane. That being said so did Andy and maybe Jim had to do that in order to temporarily become him.

The only fault I can identify with Jim's performance is that there was a sweetness about Andy and his funny antics. There is a dark anger in Jim which occasionally leaks out. Still I think Jim got as close as anyone could to capturing Andy.

My overall impression is that Andy Kaufman was a strange and beautiful performance artist. Jim Carrey is brilliant and troubled actor. I love watching his movies, but, I probably would not want to work with him.

If you're the artsy fartsy type, this is for you.
I have always enjoyed the work of Jim Carey and Andy Kaufman. Man on the Moon is a movie I have like through the years and it was interesting to see some of never before seen footage of Carey on set. Besides that, the documentary is primarily spent with Jim Carey staring into a camera while he pontificates over some of the old footage. Some of his insight on both the movie and Andy are interesting, but he really comes off as an out of touch elitist type who has way too much times on his hands, and this way too much time to self reflect.

Staying in character for a movie or play or whatever, in my opinion, is acceptable to a degree. Jim Carey took his identity crisis to a new level when he started to provoke Jerry Lawler behind the scenes like Kaufman's wrestling character....even though as Lawler states in the documentary that he and Kaufman were friends behind the scenes and that it all an act. If any of you have seen Man On The Moon then you are aware of this when Lawler and Kaufman are scolded by Danny Devito's character "behind the scenes." If Carey is such a man of detail, then he would be aware of this in the script. I think Jim Carey is very talented, but his head is so far up his own ass.

I recommend for any Carey or Kaufman fan to check it out. This is amusing but far from a classic.

I'm sorry, but I must speak my heart...
'Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond' is not that entertaining unless you only watch Kaufman, because, to me, it's got "Help me!!" written all over it. I loved the original 'Dumb and Dumber'. As a matter of fact it's at the top of my list for the funniest movies ever. However, for whatever reasons, Carrey's career nosedived over a decade ago with the recent 'Dumb and Dumber To' being the last straw. So I'm calling 'J&A' what I think it really is, folks: a shameless plug of a pity party...and I'm all choked up.
