When timid bank clerk Stanley Ipkiss (Jim Carrey) discovers a magical mask containing the spirit of the Norse god Loki, his entire life changes. While wearing the mask, Ipkiss becomes a supernatural playboy exuding charm and confidence which allows him to catch the eye of local nightclub singer Tina Carlyle (Cameron Diaz). Unfortunately, under the mask's influence, Ipkiss also robs a bank, which angers junior crime lord Dorian Tyrell (Peter Greene), whose goons get blamed for the heist.
No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.
#31 in my 99 90's: Part 2 marathon.
In honor of all the great (and popular) Letterboxd reviewers who post really short reviews...
Short review #1: Put Beetlejuice, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and the Wicked Witch of the West in a blender.
Short review #2: Dick Tracy was too early to pick up on the ska trend, and The Mask too late for new jack swing. By this untimeliness, both films should have been flops. Right?
Short review #4: The okay-est Joe Dante movie Joe Dante never made.
Short review #5: The Genie from…
So my last watch over 3 years ago I logged this a 2 star film. I'm glad 2015 Grooveman is way less pretentious then 2012 Grooveman because even though it's far from classic I had fun with this.
No la veía desde los tiempos del vhs, y resulta que es mejor de lo que pensaba. Mucho.
Me atrevería a decir que es una de las mejores películas de los noventa. Carrey está espectacular, entregado en cuerpo y alma (bueno, como siempre), Cameron Diaz más hermosa que nunca y los efectos especiales son A-SOM-BRO-SOS.
Ritmo frenético en una peli que no tiene nada que envidiar al conejo de Zemeckis y que me deja loco con el significado que le veo a las propiedades de la máscara ahora mismo: era FARLOPA.
"That's-a spicy meatball-a!"
Jim Carrey in top form! And great god of mischief does Cameron Diaz turn some heads in this film. Or should I say "Sssmokin'!"
Kiss me, my dear, and I will reveal my croissant. I will spread your pate. I will dip my ladle in your vichyssoise.
The incredible box office success of Batman in 1989 sent Hollywood into a frenzy buying up the movie rights to every comic book property they could find. The success of other properties like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles also proved that it wasn't just the long standing characters that could prove profitable causing all sorts of obscure properties to be snatched up resulting in an influx of comic book movies in the 90s that had as many bad then good.
The Mask, being one such property, was obviously rewritten to play off of what producers thought…
Dumb but interesting.
Rewatched The Mask - a true seminal 90s classic starring Carrey who's whacky & irrepressibly original antics work their usual charm to bring the laughs! As an altogether fresh class of comic book movies here we got an antihero far more likable than the popular Deadpool all while remaining decidedly family friendly. Still holding out hope for an actual sequel (no Son of the Mask doesn't count).
Featured for the song "Hey Pachuco"
This is one of the movies I grew up on so I can't review it fairly. I still view it as the younger me who overlooks flaws and movie snobery. I just see a stupidly fun movie with a massive character. I prefer not to pick it apart.
Great fun, Carrey excellent as always, shame they never made a good sequel.
Some of it now seems cheesy but all in all it's still funny and classic!
This film represents all that is wrong with Hollywood. Sorry. It just does.
It's almost as if they had half a film already made as a stock movie, then decided to cast Jim Carrey and had him improvise in front of a green screen for a couple hours, then called it a day.
Help me out with this one guys.
"It's Mission Impossible!" is the true peak of cinéma.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
