The Majestic

We recently watched a recording of The Majestic. Jim Carrey is trying to stretch himself beyond simply being a comedic actor. In this movie, he plays a black-listed 1950’s screenwriter, who gets amnesia and then is welcomed in a small town as the missing son of the local movie theater’s owner.

This Norman Rockwell inspired town seems to be reawakened by the return of the missing war hero. Ultimately, all of the loose ends are tied together. I found this movie a little too neat for my tastes, but not unpleasant. If you think Carrey is only capable of being a buffoon, I recommend you watch this decidedly old-fashioned story. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 75.
