Movie Info

This is the true story of Rocky Dennis (Eric Stoltz), a personable young man suffering from "lionitis," a fatal disease which causes hideous facial disfigurement. The son of freewheeling biker Rusty Dennis (Cher), Rocky is accepted without question by his mom's boyfriends and cycle buddies, but treated with pity, condescension, and disgust by much of the outside world. The local high school principal tries to get Rocky classified as brain-damaged so he won't have to enroll the boy in his school,

The film's undeniable impact comes from Bogdanovich's willingness to go too far with practically every emotional moment, while maintaining a distant, classical visual style that gives the film a surface dignity and reserve.

Bogdanovich invests the story with warmth, generosity and considerable power.

One of those movies that try so hard to get their supposedly universal message across that they are likely to put your teeth on edge more often than they bring one little, lonely teardrop to the eye.

Exremely well acted family melodrama about a disfigured boy that in the hands of another director could have been a schmaltzy TV Movie of the Week

Complex, moving story most appropriate for teens.

A good movie that could have been a great one with a little more restraint.

Three great performances (and some great make-up) anchor this tale of facial deformity.

A modest film by most stretches, but exquisite acting by Cher, Stoltz, and Laura Dern make it truly special.

Moving story of a disability. Stolz and Cher are outstanding.

First-rate true-life drama; Cher is outstanding

Quirky, touching drama.

This is not a typical 'disease of the week' movie about someone triumphing over adversity. It is a far more complex and moving story about two people who love and care for and about each other.

Audience Reviews for Mask

I remember watching this movie when I was younger wondering when the rig was going to drive out and turn into the command center like it does on the cartoon. When I finally figured out that this movie and the cartoon M.A.S.K. were not the same thing I found that it was a pretty good story with good acting.
