MAN ON THE MOON - COME TO THE PREMIERE!
Hundreds of readers were keen to win the tickets that money can't buy: a double pass to the Australian premieres in each State (except Tasmania) of the amazing story, Man on The Moon, starring
Jim Carrey as legendary eccentric comic, Andy Kaufman. Also stars Danny DeVito, Courtney
Love and Paul Giamatti; directed by Milos Forman. Winners will also receive a copy of the
soundtrack on CD. And a runner up in each state wins the soundtrack CD. (Sydney & Melbourne winners will also be invited to the parties)
Man on The Moon Australian Premiere -
Wednesday, February 16, 2000, in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth.
"If a film becomes art it is because it captures some essence of
light, of insight, of a truth we recognise. Art is concerned with the human condition and
exploring it through such a singular body as that of Kaufman's is never going to be easy -
but it's well worth the try." - Andrew L. Urban
"Man on the Moon is an extraordinary experience. Was Andy Kaufman a
comic genius? Or was he lurking on the dark side of sanity?" - Louise Keller.

MAN ON THE MOON
The late comedian Andy Kaufman (Jim Carrey) was a young nobody when he was sort of
discovered by George Shapiro (Danny DeVito), a manager who saw something unique in him and
set him on the road to fame with a starring role in the 1978 television sit-com, Taxi. But
Kaufman, who considered himself a song and dance man, hated Taxi, despite the massive
success it gave him. Andy wanted to pursue the outlandish pranks and situations which he
dreamed up with his friend, writer Bob Zmuda (Paul Giamatti). These include appearances by
the mysterious but lousy Las Vegas lounge singer, Tony Clifton, and the new sport of
cross-gender wrestling, where Andy meets and wrestles his love, Lynne Margulies (Courtney
Love). Andy has pulled so many tricks that nobody knows when to believe him. And when Andy
announces a major health crisis, it could be just another confronting gag.
