Jim "Carreys" the day
I finally got to see this film tonight, long after its release, and as a big
Jim Carrey fan, I was tremendously impressed with - and gratified by - his
performance. I love him as a comic, there's no question he's a genius in
that department, but I'm always pleased to see him do something 'real' -
something where he displays genuine emotion, honest feeling, and in The
Majestic, he does this brilliantly. Sure, the film is too long, too 'corny'
in spots, blah blah blah, but ultimately the sheer force of Carrey's talent
(and his deep commitment to the material) makes it work. Kudos as well to
the great Martin Landau, who turns in yet another rich performance, giving
his scenes with Carrey true poignancy..

Well I think Jim Carrey has an amazing talent of getting absolutely into his role, whether the movie is a commedy, a drama, or even a thriller like "The Number 23". This, in my opinion, makes him one of the best actors in the world! .
Jim carrie's best movie.

A throwback film in the Frank Capra style
That comment sums up the movie. If you happen to like Capra-esquire
movies, you will adore The Majestic. If you think they are silly,
sentimental and simplistic, you won't. It's just that simple.
The movie plot runs on two levels. Jim Carrey, playing straight, is
Peter Appleton, a B-movie screenwriter in 1951 Hollywood who is trying
to break into A-pictures when he is accused of being a Communist by the
House Un-American Activities Committee. As the witch hunt begins to
unfold, he has a traffic accident that ends with him and his car
falling into a river. He is carried out to sea only to be washed up on
the beach below Lawson, California - with no memory of who he is, his
past life, or how he got there.
He is promptly mistaken for Luke Trimble, a local hero missing and
presumed dead by the entire town, who like 62 other Lawson boys gave
his life for his country in World War II. Lawson's sacrifice was
recognized by President Roosevelt declaring the town a national
monument and sending a bronze sculpture to commemorate its dead.
However, the town's losses have caused Lawson to lose its heart and its
The reappearance of 'Luke,' and Peter's actions taken in another man's
shoes, revitalize the town beginning with Luke's father, Harry (Martin
Landau, in a great role) and The Majestic, the theatre owned by the
Trimbles, which Harry had closed in 1942 presumably on learning of
Luke's death. While Adele, the doctor's daughter (and Luke's fianc.
