From zero to hero.
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.

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…
No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.
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…
Great movie still!
I used to watch this VHS until the very end and the VCR would self rewind and pop the tape out and I'd use my foot to pop it RIGHT BACK IN. It's still worthy of this rare honor.
I mean..... It's not good but.... It's good? I love it?? It's one of my favourites??? but it's not good...
Dopo tutti questi anni rimane sempre sospettosamente bello, nonostante tutto.
Not a big fan of this, annoying at some point, but the concept is good.
When I was a kid this movie inspired me to teach my grandma's dog to jump really high because I wanted him to be like Milo aka the real hero of this movie
Jim Carrey is so gorgeous and extra. I love him.
First Sexual Feelings:
1.) The Little Mermaid - Ariel writhing on the sand during "Part Of Your World."
2.) Cameron Diaz wearing a red dress and dabbing her rain soaked skin with a tissue in "The Mask."
Honestly, the Mask is a lot of fun, but all I remember is that red dress and the conga line/Cuban Pete sequence.
I do not recommend a vast majority of these films. In fact, a good 80-90% of these are anywhere from…
I know a lot of these aren't exactly high art masterpieces or classic films, but that's not what this list…
