Overview

The strange mask that gave Jim Carrey remarkable powers in the 1994 hit The Mask makes a mess of a seemingly ordinary family in this special effects-laden comic fantasy. Tim Avery (Jamie Kennedy) is a cartoonist living quietly in suburbia with his wife Tonya (Traylor Howard), their baby son Alvey (Ryan Falconer), and dog Otis; however, their lives are turned upside down when Otis discovers a strange green mask which channels the spirit of Loki (Alan Cumming), the Norse god of mischief. Both Otis and Alvey get their hands (or paws) on the mask, and soon both are shape shifting and making all manner of trouble while having a great time doing it. Unfortunately, this isn't the end of Tim and Tonya's troubles -- it seems the supreme Norse god Odin (Bob Hoskins) has given Loki the assignment of recovering the mask, and Loki will do whatever he must to get the mask back from Alvey and Otis.

Son of the Mask is one grand, wildly entertaining live action cartoon with a simple fable at its core about putting family first. From the first minute of the film to the last it delivers like a classic Tex Avery and Chuck Jones short complete with up in arms critical reviews for its subversive and rebellious but ultimately hilarious, harmless and fun spirit. Without spoiling it, I can report the story lines are simple and fresh. Dads who can't cope. Kids who can't help but make mischief. And a jealous dog who isn't prepared to be pushed aside in the family by a baby. Son of the Mask may be missing Jim Carrey's charismatic, manic performance but it features many good performances where as the first movie only had one. The cast is solid and charming throughout with Jamie Kennedy, Alan Cummings, Traylor Howard, and feature performances by Bob Hoskins, Steven Wright and the dog and baby all pitching in to make Son consistently entertaining. And where as the 1994 film bogged down at times with low energy sequences when Jim Carrey wasn't in the Mask, Son of the Mask is anything but bland. It's insane. It grabs you. And it's full of laughs. Carrey fans may begin the film missing him, but by the end many will embrace this inspired and surprisingly strong movie. I would give it an eleven for originality if I could and dock it a couple points for rushing through its rather unique plot points. But there is so much packed into each sequence that it makes for great repeat viewings. Add to that tons of bonus material and fun deleted scenes. An excellent dvd for kids and adults. But don't take it from me or listen to the industry critics who missed the boat on this gem. See it for yourself. Son of the Mask is like nothing else and very funny. Outstanding. FIVE out of FIVE STARS.
