The Mask (1994)


Bank clerk Stanley Ipkiss is transformed into a manic superhero when he wears a mysterious mask. (IMDb)
Carrey’s wonderfully wacky physical comedy and over-the-top mannerisms find their perfect match in the literally cartoon-y (see the bomb-swallowing, bazooka-in-pocket) character of The Mask, making for a first two acts with memorably fun scenes too numerous to mention, with a thoughtful underlying theme of identity to boot. A lame, vaguely written villain (why did he want to blow up the club again?) really tarnishes the third act though (having someone else wear the mask kinda ruined it for me).
7/10 (Good)



  1. Haha…oh I remember this movie from my childhood. This was when Jim Carrey was comedic gold. Plus, this was when Cameron Diaz looked the prettiest (in my opinion).
