DikPix : Don’t you dare insult Jim Carrey you actual pleb. Your videos are trash and mine are much better.

Sven Stoffels : Quick tip, next time skip the joke parts...

Jill : tbh i skipped the granddad joke

Austin Williams : Liked it, but please cut down on the meta humor. The analysis itself was great!

FM Volt : My only gripe with Jim on his supposed "incarnation" of Andy is that a lot of co-stars and friends came on record saying he was actually a gentle person most of the times and very caring when not in character and I felt like Jim only portrayed his crazy side, which clearly existed, but left out a big part of what made Andy himself so in the end I think he clearly didn't get the whole picture

Andrew Coleman : Andy was hated on the taxi set for being outrageously hard to work with. Soooo Jim was pretty accurate tbh

TheNewyorkdragon : What was that weird shit with your grandpa? I eventually had to fast forward through it. This video wasn’t worth the time.

Yan Thériault : First phrase you got it wrong. Jim didn't became Andy Kaufman. He became it's characters.

Lucky Losin : Turn the yelling down, the rest of the video is so mellow, it's not funny when you shout, it's really annoying.

Sweaty Baby Powder Hands : I can't tell if these jokes are supposed to be funny, or they are only there to reach the 10 min part. Appreciate the research on the whole subject but these jokes man, I can't.

Harry's Moving Castle : You contextualized everything really nicely, but I agree with Max, your grandad joke was really stretched out. It was funny that you went completely meta about it, but the video feels too long in itself because of these detractions. The animations were 10/10 though. ;) I do completely agree with your critique of his performance though; Jim Carrey can only play Jim Carrey in my eyes... with the possible exception of Eternal Sunshine. Wottanob.

marion91is : OH MY GOD CAN WE GET TO THE POINT OF THE VIDEO. That granddad routine went on wayyyyyyyyyyy too long. Skipped after 20 seconds. Thank you for the video about Jim Carrey as Andy Kaufman as well as your impression of Jim Carrey as Andy Kaufman. Otherwise good, but skip the comedy side-routines...

Hypar Beem : Skip the jokes

Little Cripple : One of the biggest things about Kaufman was that he never wanted anyone to know the real Kaufman

Stuart Taylor : It's like you watch Redlettermedia, jontron and IHateEverything and miss what makes their random tirades funny, please find an identity to your videos. Or were you doing like a deliberate 'channeling Andy Kaufman' annoying personality thing?..In which case the unfunny and boring is now ironic and you are smart...and funny. Keep up the great work!

RennsReviews : Hey PicNix, I actually thought that this video was more interesting than the actual documentary. Saw a couple of your grandads unboxing vids, and he was a real legend. Gone too soon.

thunder1soldier : Some of your comparisons fall flat and cant really be compared. For example, the bar of soap bit. Andy is sitting in front of a camera with a microphone talking, where as Jim is in a wrestling ring doing the bit. You cant really say he is over acting, because his acting fits the situation. He couldnt deliver it the same way Andy does in that situation, because it doesnt fit. I respect what you've tried to do here, personally, I think what Jim did was quite genius, and you and anyone else is allowed to disagree, its kind of a subjective thing. But throughout the video you try to make points that may be valid, but like with the soap bit you dont have the best examples. And to be clear, Im not trying to be a dick here, this comment is meant to be constructive criticism.

Kevin Harris : Agreed......Carrey fancies himself some sort of “woke AF” person, so open and sharing about his feelings way too much, as if we care. It was a fine performance, but nothing special. His job was acting.......the documentary was better than the movie, which poorly represented the ground breaking comedic genius of Kauffman. Lawler has been very upfront about the friendship that he had with Kaufman. Why Jim Carrey didn’t understand that wrestling is fake and staged, is beyond me. At one point he actually spit in Jerry Lawler’s face on the set. When they filmed the letterman scene, Lawler tells the story that he hit Jim Carrey is hard as he could, much harder than when he slapped Kaufman. Jim Carrey is so far removed from the reality of every day human beings at this point. Sharing his search for self actualization is insulting to most human beings who are living check to check. Stop being a miserable introspective fuck, and be happy that you have nothing to worry about ever again. You will always be famous, you will always have money, and women will always throw themselves at you. Nobody cares about your search for meaning.

Matt Mitchell : Amazing video. He was Jim Carrey the whole time. The GrandPa Joke was horrible and WAY too long. I actually clicked off and then later came back to see the rest. This review/write up nails the film for what it is and brings up great points but the jokes almost make it unwatchable. Guys stick with the incredible content, leave the bad jokes behind.

The Battle Lounge : I know it's hard to be creative, but this video is irony at its absolute worst

Romulus Numa : I don't know what this video is but I liked it.

Reinulus Aurelius : Jim Carrey is obviously mentally ill.

Erfenburgurz : Tbh I actually liked the “safety net” joke. I felt as it if were trying to fail at making the joke but trying break the fourth wall at the same time, but it totally failed at breaking the fourth wall at the end, even though failing to break the fourth wall was intentional.

Dino Spumoni : Great video. I think in your conclusion you are underestimating Carrey's acting abilities. Have you seen _Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?_ His performance is brilliant.

Donny Domingo : Sorry you lost me after you felt it necessary to explain that Andy's ghost didn't really possess Jim's body. Ya think?

TheLostDemon : It has always been my opinion that Jim Carry overplays all of his roles, sometimes it's perfect but other times it seems to be too cartoonish

Rally Boyd : Man on the Moon was from 1999, or am I missing a joke?

FUGGle : Dude these sketches in the middle of the information make it almost not worth it. Almost. But still, you aren't funny. You are just a comedy nerd. lol jk.

DatDirtyXeno : I personally didn't find Kauffman funny, Jim Carrey's method approach funny, his acting in the film funny, or you funny.

verdatum : Far too much 4th wall humor. Your arguments stand on their own. Use the self-deprecation and meta humor as careful accents. Don't just fall back on them every 30 seconds. I had to bail after 4:30. Go back and watch Mr. Plinkett to get a lesson on when to break from the narrative and when to continue your thought straight through. I wish you the best!

John Sanford : I agree wholeheartedly but man, this guy's comedic delivery sucks. Really it's his whole flawed understanding of what humor is that just...left me empty. A two minute diatribe on his fictional grandfather non sequitur that came out of nowhere that would have made Kaufman wish he never picked up a microphone and influenced this poor socially retarded soul.

a nice warm glass of milk : How could anyone dismiss the meta humor? It's the best part of the analysis. Except for the grandpa bit. That was weird.

Doapsique Gaming : In fairness: I don't blame a single actor for what happened to Suicide Squad. It was 50% studio interference 25 director and 25 dc. If Leto would've had the part he prepared for there's little doubt the movie would've been better. Most of the bad choices (like having tattoos that read "ha ha ha" and "joker") was beyond Leto's control. How many times do we see an Oscar winner in a horrendously bad movie? And how many times do directors find someone off the street who gives a performance of a lifetime, never to be heard from again? If all our culture knew of Robert DeNero was his past 15 years of work he would make every top 10 worst actors list on the internet. It takes a bad director to say "that was great" when it was dog shit. No bad actors, only bad directors.

red wolf92 : 9:42 boobies

WartyFingleBlaster : The granddad joke safety net didn't work... In fact none of your jokes did... The parts of the video where you actually did the analysis was good though. Stick to that.

Michael Rowley : why are we hating on jeremy jahns? did i miss something?

Turquoise Cheetah : Everyone talked so much shit about the grandfather joke rhag I actually enjoyed it by the time I j got to it in the video

chaosawaits : You do make some great points. Had Jim Carrey worked more on making a more genuine character on the screen rather than all the time, he may have gotten a nomination for that movie. I don't think that method acting really works. The only time I think it was ever a good thing was when Tim Allen played Santa Claus. According to the story, they filmed the movie with a bunch of little kids near the beginning of the movie and because Tim Allen was so fucking good in that movie, the kids believed he really was Santa Claus. Tim Allen didn't have the heart to crush their beliefs so he stayed in character all the time for the rest of the movie.

Dislexic-Woolf : 12:26 did you just lampshade lampshading?

Heather Turner : the sickest part was when he spoke with Andy's actual kid - and made it out like 'this was the first time they had a real conversation with their father'. Andy Kaufman's parents also treated him like Andy, and the whole cancer bit ... super tasteless.... I agree with your assessment. I was not mega impressed by Carey's antics..

Felipe Gonzalez : What was up with the end of the video? It was disturbing

Graphomite : People are bashing NitPix for the grampa joke, but I think that was the point. He was talking about subtly in this video, yet proceeds to demonstrate himself overdoing a joke, much like he demonstrates Jim Carrey's self-depreciation at 11:30 by cutting away to talk about himself.

BadGuyMcgee : Danny Davito looks like a shorter version of my grandpa.

T. Duffour : I don't think his performance in the movie is an issue at all. And the difference from original clips can be explained in many cases by the fact that the script recontextualized them into situations where Andy is performing for a live audience, in which he often was more over the top. Carey shouldn't have aped every line and intonation in those scenes, which is why he didn't. Man on the Moon was good, not great, but I think that has a lot more to do with the script and direction. It really is a shame that it didn't fully take advantage of Carey's performance. Yeah, he WAS an asshole. But that's what's interesting about the documentary and artists themselves. They sometimes get a little crazy for the art. I can't personally condemn it to quite the degree that you do.

WalterLiddy : Too many 'jokes'.  Get to the point.  I'm like 4 minutes in and it's just a lot of babbling so far.

purpandorange : I never got why people though Jim Carrey was a nice humble guy, he always was a notorious narcissist and super frustrating to work with.

Austin Williams : I mean... Jim Carrey is a very big believer or spirituality, and when he inhabited the mindset of Andy Kaufman, afterwords I feel like he legitimately thought that he did get possessed by Kaufman. Also, for the overacting, remember, the movie was to portray Andy as a human, and not recreate his performances, because, like you said, Andy never wanted a give people a personality. So, for people to figure out what Andy thinks and how his mind work, you need to portray a thought process

graphicnovellife : I always had a feeling that Jim Carrey was an ass. I remember watching him as a kid and not liking him because he was so essentric in his roles and wondering if he was like that as a person. Guess I was right.

axeenj : I feel like I have to balance out all the negativity in this comment section by saying that I found the beginning of the video genuinely funny. It got me, as I was like "is that what he sounds like? This feels like something else, can't put my finger on it... Oh, hah!". Then the tea bit was also funny, at least the first time.

Rhino Thunder : In the documentary Jim and Andy Jerry Lawler has a segment and would she explains his rivalry with Andy Kaufman. He said he remembered going on the Johnny Carson zero and he remembered the wrestling match between him and Andy Journal or said that when there was no camera and they were off the set That Andy Kaufman was just a normal nice guy and was just playing up a stick when they were doing the show or doing the wrestling match. He went on to say that when he was with Jim Carrey that Jim Carrey was acting like an asshole even when they had cut filming. Jerry Lawler said he almost quit the film because in like the way Jim Carrey was acting when they weren’t filming the scene. Jerry Lawler say you got more infuriated with Jim Carrey off the set Then he ever did filming with Andy Kaufman.
