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.

The Mask is a very interesting comedy film. With brilliant directing by Chuck Russell, The Mask is an entertaining humourous film with style. I thought the plot was very interesting and like I said, interesting. Based on The Mask comic book, The filmmakers have toned down violence and has reinvented a different style for the film. The violence in the film plays out more for comic relief than anything else. Jim Carrey delivers one of his most memorable performances of his career as mild mannered banker Stanley Ipkiss who finds a green Mask and puts it on only to realize the mask has powers that turn him into a prankster. The Mask is terrific special effects laden comedy film with a hint of Sci Fi. The Mask is of course memorable for Cameron Diaz' acting debut, and this is really her best performance of her career. The Mask is a well acted film with a great story, good directing and plenty of laughs. This is one of Jim Carrey's best performances and he is truly electrifying on screen. The Mask is visually appealing, and it has a fairly good story. The film is silly at times, but never goes overboard to become irritating to the viewer. The Mask is an exciting, thrilling film that everytime I watch, I always get entertained. There's never anything boring here, at times, you see that things could have been done better with the film, but fore what it is, The Mask manages to be one, entertaining and memorable comedic ride.
