Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
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.
" We all wear masks, Metaphorically speaking. "
Jim Carey gives one of his greatest performances as Stanley, a very pleasant and all around nice bank teller. Who out of a horrible night comes across a mask. It's not just any mask though, this mask when put on turns the person wearing it into a amazingly powerful, and in Stanly case very confident, funny, and very animated character. The movie reminds me of a comic book, with its bright colors and style. Cameron Diaz makes her movie debut as Tina the vivacious and beautiful singer that i Stanley can't help but falling head over heels for. But I find that the star of this show is Stanley's dog Milo, you can't help but fall in love with this dog he is Stanley's sidekick and best friend through the whole movie. This movie is fun for the whole family and I guarantee that it will make you laugh.
The acting and characters are amazing and its enjoyable at times but Jim carrey needs to take a break from being over the top.
Uma comédia que marcou a sua altura...
Got to be one of Carrey's greatest.
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.
