In 2017, the documentary ''Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond'' was released on Creator/{{Netflix}}, showing behind-the-scenes footage of Carrey [[MethodActing staying in character]] all through the production of this film - even to the point of getting into a real scrap with Wrestling/JerryLawler.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Jim Carrey is a ''lot'' more conventionally attractive than the RealLife Andy Kaufman, even with a few warts.
** Paul Giamatti as well. No offense to Zmuda but he's not an attractive man in the least.

** Also missing is Tony Danza who refused to appear due to a long standing dislike for Kaufman. Ditto Michael Richards, who was involved in the infamous ''Saturday Night Live'' incident.

* TheCameo: Patton Oswalt, nearly unrecognizable in a long blonde wig and mustache, as one of the people Andy serves as a restaurant waiter.
* CelebrityParadox: Danny [=DeVito=] was fascinated by Andy's relationship with his agent George Shapiro and wanted to play that role from the beginning -- not realizing that this would come up where ''Series/{{Taxi}}'' was concerned. Once the dilemma was recognized, the solution was not to include Louie De Palma (and thus, [=DeVito=]) in the recreations of the show. To help make up for this and Tony Danza's choice not to participate, Christopher Lloyd and Carol Kane appear in these scenes despite not joining the series as regulars until after the Tony Clifton incident that the ''Taxi''-related stretch of the film ends on.

* JerkAss: Andy's Tony Clifton act, which basically consists of him pretending to be a terrible lounge singer who spends most of his stage time hurling abuse at the audience.

* MatchCut / TimeSkip: 8-year-old Andy performs his CallAndResponseSong "The Cow Goes Moo" with his little sister doing the responses. On "And the lion goes --" "Roar!", her voice is replaced with that of a bored, middle-aged comedy club patron -- cue the match cut revealing him, the setting, and from there the reveal that Andy, now in his ''mid-twenties'', is performing the song for adults.

* WhamShot: In the epilogue, the final shot of the film tracks through the audience cheering Tony Clifton's comeback performance one year after Andy's death. [[spoiler: Bob Zmuda is among them. ''So who's playing Tony?'']]
** Probable answer: Kaufman's ''brother'', who in real life occasionally played Clifton a few times both while Kaufman was still alive and after his death.

* IncurableCoughOfDeath: Justified. Twice, Andy has trouble talking due to having a cough. It's not acknowledged by anyone in-story and is easily missed...but it foreshadows his lung cancer. What justifies this? The real Andy only learned he had cancer after his loved ones convinced him to see a doctor about his worsening cough.
