We thought the movie was very good. I really like Jim Carey as a serious actor. I was surprised the movie was 2:45 long but I enjoyed it alot.

Good movie but probably not for everyone. Had a slow pace to it and the communist angle at the end dragged it out to the point where it was anti-climatic. The acting is good all around and it's well written.

I really enjoyed this movie. I'm not a Jim Carrey fan by any means (I think his humor is ridiculous), but if he did more serious movies like this, I could change my opinion of him.

Seeing this on the heels of the very weird and disappointing Vanilla Sky, this movie was a breath of fresh air. I'm sure not everyone would like this film because it was normal, clean, and non-violent, which some may say is boring, but I thought it was a great story, set in a wonderful town.

The end was fairly predictable, but it needed that particular ending. The one drawback was the length of the film. I dont like to sit in a movie that long, and I was getting a little restless after two hours.

Frank Capra lives agin in "The Majestic," a film that celebrates patriotism, small town living and a broken down movie theatre which is the center of the movie.

Jim Carray who is usually funny in past movies, played it straight this time, to timed with the seriousness of the film. Carray played a screenwriter who was blacklisted for being a communist.(which he's not) Goes out into the country and has aminesia as a result of a accident. The townspeople took him believing that he's a dead serviceman who came home.

The film worked very well. The theatre who Carray helped re-built is as powerful as the surrounding town, and a key in getting his memory back.

The film pays tribute to the American spirit and after the September 11 attacks, we need more movies like "The Majestic" to show our patriotism in a time of both war and peace.
