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…
What adult comic book movies should strive to be. Fun and good as hell.
It's like Deadpool except they don't say douche nugent or turd guzzler.
I don't remember much about this movie, I think it was just kinda retarded and there was no reason Cameron Diaz's character would go for Jim Carrey's character.
its a comedy flick with Jim Carrey that gets the most important objective done, what is that objective? IT MAKES YOU LAUGH! duh it doesn't have to be a master piece. some credit to give to the mask that is never granted that this was in the early-mid 1990s when CGI was in its infancy and this movie has CGI used for the whacky humor but it knows how use it in a way that makes it work.
I finally saw this movie it was such An awesome movie. Worth A Watch
It's aged pretty well, surprisingly well actually. Carrey and Diaz are quite good. It's got a few riskier jokes that I remembered (or than I realised at the time) and it remains good solid fun.
kind of terrifying for a comedy
What an atrociously irritating movie.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
Help me out with this one guys.
"It's Mission Impossible!" is the true peak of cinéma.
