He's s-s-s-smokin'! Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz star in this story of a sweet, socially inept bank teller who discovers a magical mask that brings his innermost desires to screaming life, and transforms him into a superhero.

A bit crude, but fun and relatively harmless.

Fresh: This special effects extravaganza is s good star vehicle for Jim Carrey, exhibiting his skills and his shticks; in a small part, the sexy Cameron Diaz is bound to become a leading lady.

Fresh: It] wouldn't have been possible without Jim Carrey, who commands the physically demanding lead role with exuberant confidence.

It's been a while since I saw it...And it is still a good movie. Surprisingly good effects.

S-S-S-SMOKIN'! Awesome, hilariously funny and crazy action-comedy of a wise-cracking love-crazy and crime-fighting green tornado. Jim Carrey brings an awesome acting on his rubber-faced when wearing a green mask. The success of the film wholly depends on Carrey, as he has to sell his characters' frenzied insanity so that it's believable as a reflection of Stanley's inner self while at the same time likable but teetering on the edge of becoming obnoxiously overbearing. Of course, the amazing special effects and make-up help, as well as the clever script and more than competent directing and cinematography, but with the wrong actor in the part, the whole affair could have easily collapsed. And Cameron Diaz is a real knockout in her debut, even keeping pace with the rubber-legged Carrey in the dance sequence that has to be seen to be believed. I like the scene of The Mask in a hilarious part where he dances and makes the police squad dance either. It really makes one wanna dance. Based on Dark Horse comic book series created by writer John Arcudi and artist Doug Mahnke, and based on a concept by publisher Mike Richardson.
