It’s Episode 82! Drunk Women Solving Crime (Hannah and Taylor) join us to review the 2017 documentary Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton, Hannah’s choice.

Jim & Andy is the result of several hours of filming Jim Carrey in ‘character’ behind the scenes on the set for the 1999 film Man on the Moon and Jim Carrey now ruminating on what happened literally and spiritually during the filming.

This documentary was released by Netflix and the footage captured was allegedly wanted destroyed by Universal Pictures (who produced Man on the Moon) because they didn’t want people to think Jim Carrey was an asshole. You can begin to imagine what this documentary is like.

Part car crash and part journey into the art involved in perfecting a performance, it’s also one mans tribute to a man he admired and occasionally imitated. Interesting, bizarre, intense and fascinating, it might be a documentary but it’s impossible to tell what is real and what is planned.

Scores

There was a lot of love for both Jim AND Andy from Flixwatcher and guests, if there is one word to describe it, it is fascinating – as a documentary and a film – and rare for a documentary rewards with repeat viewings. Jim & Andy scores overall a very high 4.31, we recommend!
