The Mask Reviews
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.
