The Majestic

Other mistake: At the welcome home party, Peter/Luke is at the piano with the female piano teacher. She is helping him remember how to play a song. Problem is, she is playing the keys right in front of her, and he is playing the keys right in front of him (you can tell by their hand placement and where their eyes are looking), but they are both playing in the same octave. His notes should have sounded at least an octave higher. Furthermore, when he starts playing the jazzy sounding tune, the keys we hear are very low and would have been to the left of the teacher. He would have had to reach across her to reach those keys, but instead he is playing the keys right in front of him.


Continuity mistake: After Jim Carrey crashes the car on the bridge and, we see in the long shots that the lamp on the half-broken post above him is swinging from side to side. However each time we cut to a closeup of Carrey's face, it is lit very evenly - although the only source of light nearby is swinging wildly.

Trivia: When Jim Carrey leaves the bar that he was drinking in with the monkey, check the sign behind him - it says Coco Bongo. The Coco Bongo Clup is the new club in another Jim Carrey movie, "The Mask".

Question: How is it that everybody except Bob mistook Peter for Luke? Luke was well-known by the whole town so it seems kind of strange that they would mistake a complete stranger with amnesia for someone they've actually known for a long time.

Answer: The father showed a picture of Luke. Peter and Luke were identical twins.
