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.
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.
Good fun still with the effects dating a bit now though. Carrey is great in this and makes it a real good watch still.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Jim Carrey brings the comic book style animated character of the Mask to life in an enjoyably energetic pageant.
Good: Jim Carrey's boundless energy and physical style is perfect for this role, an animation in his own right.
Bad: None of the characters have much depth. Kind-hearted reporter inexplicably turns out to work for the bad guy.
Rating: 8 / 10 (Great)
Part 2 of my Jim Carrey Marathon
Smart, hyper, and hilarious, The Mask is a quick paced thrill ride that had me wrapped up into it's absurd plot for the whole time.
Jim Carrey gives one his best performances as Stanley Ipkiss/ The Mask and fits the role perfectly. He's energetic and his wacky antics lead to big laughs. Cameron Diaz does great as well for watch she is given.
The film is very self aware of it's cliches and is smart enough to know what it is. It's "random" humor isn't as random as you might think as it's able to tie into what's going on quite well.
The style of the film is very cartoon like and it…
Fun movie and great special effects.
