Carrey may be the finest comic to come along since Robin Williams.

April 12, 2013
When his face turns green and his limbs get limber, Carrey's pretty much unstoppable. This cartoon-y creation is an amazing fusion of physical comedy and state-of-the- art cinema illusion.

April 12, 2013
The gangland plot is flimsy (bad guy Peter Greene wears too much eyeliner), and the jokes are erratic, but it's a far better showcase for Carrey's comic-from-Uranus talent than Ace Ventura.
April 12, 2013
Carrey and his aggressive overbite are back, but this time he's better used as an ingredient instead of as the plot.

Carrey, the star of the surprising hit Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and a regular on TV's In Living Color, acquits himself well in a part of sublime goofiness.
April 12, 2013
If a movie star was born in Ace Ventura, he is christened in The Mask. Quite simply, this is the best and freest crazy comedy to come along since Beetlejuice.
April 12, 2013
Not only is he adept at physical humor, the kind of knockabout stuff that recalls the classic silent clowns, but Carrey also has a bright and likable screen presence, a lost puppy quality that is surprisingly endearing.

...a kind of Roger Rabbit on steroids that still holds up well after all these years.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
December 14, 2008
The Mask is highly enjoyable -- if you can bear Carrey's constant tics and mugging.
November 24, 2008
Adroitly directed, viscerally and visually dynamic and just plain fun.
April 18, 2007
The results are easy to watch, though awfully familiar and simpleminded.
February 5, 2007
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.

October 7, 2006
[It] wouldn't have been possible without Jim Carrey, who commands the physically demanding lead role with exuberant confidence.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

February 9, 2006
The design is bright as a button and the transformation scenes real eye-poppers, but the film's best special effect is putty-faced Carrey with his razzle-dazzle star turn as the affable Stanley and his manic alter ego.
August 18, 2005
Cartoony fun with a bombastic Jim Carrey.
| Original Score: B+
July 6, 2005
Despite everything, it's still a marvellously energetic movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 2, 2005
CG overkill salvaged by Carrey's maniacal performance.
