Synopsis:
It's the 1950's and ambitious Hollywood screenwriter, Peter Appleton, (Jim Carrey) has everything going for him. That is until the FBI discover he attended a communist meeting during college and blacklist him. Drunk and desperate, Peter drives aimlessly through the streets of California, finally crashing into a stormy river and waking to find himself in a small coastal town, minus his memory. The tiny town of Lawson, however, go wild and embrace Peter as local missing-in-action war hero, Luke Trimble, with whom he shares an uncanny resemblance.
Injecting new life and hope into the community, Peter goes about restoring the Majestic, a crumbling movie palace owned by 'his father', Harry Trimble (Martin Landau) and rekindling the passion of old flame Adele Stanton (Laurie Holden). However, when Peter's memory starts returning, he has even bigger dilemmas to face. With the FBI closing in on his trial, does he run or brave his accusers back in Hollywood once and for all? And more importantly, will he find the courage to tell the town who he really is?

Jim Carrey played so well in it. This dvd has a great story line in it. Jim carrey does not try and be funny it, he plays a well seroius actor. Really good movie to watch.

Jim gets better. - The Majestic review by NC

Wonder if Will Ferrell will take note, and do some more proper film parts? Jim not wired-up crazy person for once. Quite competent actor in fact. Have to give it 4 instead of 3, as just so few decent films about. Plus there is no violence or swearing!

Martin Landau is old school, and does excellent work...........Bob Babalan been around for more years than can remember, and also lends credibility.......the old cars could have been a bit scruffier, as all looked collectors items.........as they probably are of course............
