Dumb and loud, with questionable material.

Sequels without their original stars are usually sent direct to video. Some deserve better, [but] this isn't one of those.

It's your usual low-budget, unbelievably bad sequel.

Kennedy is feeble and even Alan Cumming makes less of a meal than he could of his role as the petulant god of mischief.

Also struggling vainly against the visual effects are Traylor Howard as Kennedy's wife and Bob Hoskins as Cumming's father, the god Odin.

If nothing else, Son Of The Mask's bad seed baby serves up an all natural commercial for mental birth control.

Whatever possessed director Lawrence Guterman and writer Lance Khazei to transform the sequel to 1994's libidinous hit comedy into pabulum?

The movie strives for a positive message about growing up and embracing the joys of fatherhood, but when the baby's this ugly, you're left wishing the filmmakers had practiced a little cinematic celibacy.

A transparently minimal effort in which many jokes and pivotal plot points are grossly inappropriate for children.

Joyless tedium.

A bright, fast, kiddie-oriented lark.

No doubt extensive market research shows that there's an audience out there for movies like Son Of The Mask, but it's too depressing to speculate who that might be.

The only place for a movie like Son of the Mask is at the bottom of the bargain bin at your local Wal-Mart.

There's no story to speak of, just a string of scenarios usually resulting in everything in sight getting smashed.

Thanks to its garish production design and uniformly unpalatable cast, Son of the Mask is the ugliest kids' film since The Cat in the Hat.

It'll be hard enough to keep the attention of the children and harder still to keep adults from wishing they could get back the hour and half they just lost.

How far down the Hollywood food chain do you have to go before you get stuck with Jamie Kennedy as the star of your movie? Did Ben Affleck turn down Son of the Mask?

Cumming is well-suited to this kind of material, but Kennedy, while decent as a henpecked husband, is unbelievably awful when he dons the green face-paint.

Wait till it comes out on video. You'll know when to turn what off.

Retains absolutely none of its predecessor's manic charm.
