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…
Has to be one of the best movie-by-the-numbers out there.
Cameron Diaz. That's it.
This movie can be described as: a cartoon with Jim Carrey as the main character. The mask concept is cool and Jim Carrey plays it perfectly! If you haven't seen this 90s flick, check it out! The Cuban Pete scene is really cool too.
VERY GOOD... 7/10 OR 3.5/5
A decent little comedy with some great bits and acting. It's a product of the 90's that treats itself exactly the way it should be.
I thought it was good, had some great gags, some unforgettable sequences, and Jim Carrey was phenomenal, but it was a bit too sexist for me.
I'm pretty lenient when it comes to this kinda stuff, but I mean the first scene with Cameron Diaz alone should be a red flag, then when a shred of a "normally" written female character walks in, she betrays our main character for money.
Also, if the whole point of the film is that the mask gave him the ability to express (in an exaggerated sense) what he truly desired and then he realizes that he just has to be himself or something like that,
Then why does he save the day AS THE MASK.
He literally learns the lesson, then puts the mask back on to finish the problem. Couldn't he use his newly found (I guess) charisma to save the day AS HIMSELF?
I don't know why I'm analyzing this.
This movie is like if you took every single one of my favorite things and threw it onto a screen.
Revi na companhia de uma modelo internacional.. recebi um "aconchego" e dei um beijinho na cara.
Obrigado Cameron Diaz.
Still one of my favorite Jim Carrey films. Just fun and great entertainment.
Help me out with this one guys.
I think Some Like it Hot is the one that marked me the…
