    I watched this over Labor Day weekend, after Man on the Moon just happened to be on TV & reminded me of it.

    My first thought was that, although Carrey's performance was very good, it didn't seem to require such extreme method acting.

    My second was that it was perfect for someone playing Kaufman. It was funny that Carrey actually seemed to get on the nerves of some people much more than Kaufman himself.

    I'm not sure what you mean here, are you implying everyone should share the same opinion or your opinions?

    Sorry I have replied this way, My 'quote' bubble does not work for some reason, When I click it nothing happens.

    Just reply to your thread I think Jim liked getting n peoples nerves. Lol

    From what I can recall from 10 months ago(!), I take as a given the fact that a reviewer usually reveals far more about himself in a review than he does about the nominal subject of the review.

    Or words to that effect ...
