As a comedy, The Mask is genial, but its recycled plot is far too thin for the film to succeed as either an adventure or a spoof.

In the end, those viewers who aren't big fans of Carrey, Diaz, or comic books probably won't miss much if they don't watch this film.

Gimmicky, tiresome, and without any redeeming qualities. Diaz is nothing more than a pretty, smiling face.

The story is unoriginal and dull, and the direction doesn't break anything.

Doesn't have any more material than a Tex Avery cartoon.

Carrey has yet to find the perfect vehicle for himself, but The Mask, while hardly as fantastic as it should have been, is a step in the right direction.

Bright-eyed, crazily intense, irrepressibly silly, Mr. Carrey can be funny without fireworks. He deserves material clever enough to let him do just that.

Carrey now has the clout to find a vehicle worthy of his hyperactive gooniness. When he does, we'll see if he's truly a jester for our time or simply the moron of the moment.

Adults should also be advised that the previews show most of the good effects, and are 100 minutes shorter.

Though the story has a certain universal appeal -- who hasn't felt like a useless jerk and wished to wake up capable of anything? -- the execution is oddly sour and distasteful.

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

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.

[It] wouldn't have been possible without Jim Carrey, who commands the physically demanding lead role with exuberant confidence.

The Mask is a perfect vehicle for the talents of Jim Carrey, who underwhelmed me with Ace Ventura, Pet Detective but here seems to have found a story and character that work together with manic energy.

CG overkill salvaged by Carrey's maniacal performance.
