From zero to hero.
A meek, milquetoast bank teller discovers a magical ancient mask that unleashes his deepest desires -- and gives him the superhuman ability to act on them. Accompanied by his canine sidekick, the mischievous action hero goes gaga for a singer. Meanwhile, he battles gangsters who seek the mask's powers.
No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.
"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…
Those legs..oh god...even after 20 years damn
Don't We all wish to escape our mundane lives and experience liberation of wackiness letting our inner child run loose... :-)
One of my favorite films from my childhood, The Mask is still pretty damn entertaining to this day. I hadn't seen it all the way through for years now and I suddenly got the urge to see it again recently (seeing it for $5 was all it really took for me to pursue that urge). I think it has aged fairly well for a movie that's nearly 20 years old, the effects aren't as mind-blowing but are still great for their time. I have to admit that I didn't enjoy this nearly as much as I did ten years ago, but that doesn't mean I regret those $5 spent. I can definitely see myself watching this again in a couple years. Plus, I still always find it fun to watch Jim Carrey in his over-the-top comedic performances (not to mention Milo being one of the best onscreen dogs ever).
One of those films that's supposed to be funny, but I found it to be more annoying than anything.
There are some funny lines and amusing moments, but everything is so wildly excessive that it gets tiresome eventually for me. Cameron Diaz (a newcomer back then) looks absolutely spectacular, I don't think she has looked better ever since. Some visual effects still impress today, I suspect the cartoonish look helps a lot with that. And the dog is just great.
Meek bank clerk Stanley Ipkiss is a nice person - so nice that people walk all over him. One night at the docks he comes across a mysterious green mask that happens to be inhabited by the Norse god Loki. His new persona is an uncontrollable bundle of energy and come afoul of the town's mafia. Jim carry and the visual effect's in this film is funny and good, This movie has some really strong dark humor.
Some of the CGI looks bad now, but it's 90's Carrey at his prime of being a hoot and impossible to dislike.
Doesn't hold up too well but the parts that have Jim Carrey over-acting while wearing the mask are goofy fun. Cameron Diaz is gorgeous in this. And the dog is pretty great. Still, not worth the time.
When this first came out, The Mask was my FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME!!! I bought the comic books, the action figures, posters for my wall. I even bought a green rubber mask.
I was in seventh grade. Don't judge me.
The year was 1994 and aside from masterpieces like "Pulp Fiction" and "The Shawshank Redemption" getting release and go on to become the classics that they are. However, this was also the year that Jim Carrey became a star with the release of "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Mask" and "Dumb & Dumber." With some then-breakthrough technology, "The Mask" is a live-action Tex Avery cartoon featuring Carrey as a boring, but nice bank accountant man who inner most desires is manifested thanks to a magical mask that transforms him into a cartoonish superhero. It is not perfect especially with the paper-thin plot this film has, but it has a fantastic look with a production design that pays homage to 1940s film…
The most cartoonish live action movie I've seen, The Mask is a delightfully funny movie that has Jim Carrey's best performance.
The Mask plays even sillier and less seriously than it did when I was a kid, when Jim Carrey's crazed antics played like genuine emotional choices.
Sometimes I just get it in my head to watch a movie I haven't seen since I was a kid. Didn't hold up as well as I remembered but it was still kind of fun.
