Overview

Hyperactive mayhem results when a mild-manned banker discovers an ancient mask that transforms him into a zany prankster with superhuman powers in this special-effects-intensive comedy. The wildly improvisational Jim Carrey plays Stanley Ipkiss, a decent-hearted but socially awkward guy who one night finds a strange mask. Carrey's trademark energy reveals itself after Stanley puts on the mask and the banker transforms into The Mask, a green-skinned, zoot-suited fireball. The rubber-faced Mask possesses the courage to do the wild, fun things that Stanley fears, including romancing Tina Carlyle Cameron Diaz. In addition to Carrey's physical talents, the film makes effective use of digital visual effects that bestow the Mask with superhuman speed, insane flexibility, and popping eyes out of a Tex Avery cartoon. The larger narrative, involving the efforts of Tina's gangster boyfriend to destroy Stanley and use the mask's powers for evil, prove less interesting than the anarchic comic set pieces, including a particularly memorable dance number to "Cuban Pete." The film delivered enough laughs to become a surprise hit and, along with the same year's Dumb and Dumber, establish Carrey's status as a comedy superstar.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Jim Carrey's comic schtick is somewhere between Robin Williams' schizophrenic hamming and the ridiculous physical comedy of Jerry Lewis. Though the pure stupidity of his 1994 breakthrough Ace Ventura: Pet Detective proved popular, it was his summer follow-up, The Mask, that began to win over critics. With the release of Dumb and Dumber that December, Carrey had become one of Hollywood's hottest stars -- in one calendar year. Directed by the largely unknown Chuck Russell, The Mask's real stars are the computer effects designed by Industrial Light and Magic. Many compared the eye-popping "masking" of Carrey to Tex Avery's wacky Warner Brothers cartoons. Carrey's reputation as an actor and as a popular icon has continued to grow since the film's release, as has that of co-star Cameron Diaz, who made her impressive big screen debut in this film.

    Hilarious!

    The Mask is one of Jim Carrey's best and funniest movies. It is a cute movie that is absolutely hilarious and a good movie to watch when you are ill or just feeling a little down and you need some laughs to help cheer you up.
