A really decent flick from our master of comedy: Jim Carrey.

Call it a guilty pleasure or whatever, but I like this movie. Intellectually I recognize it is stupid as hell in many ways, but it works for me. Rare case where I go higher than the consensus. I mean let's not go crazy but ---> 7.4 out of 10

With great performances, great CGI at the time, and a good story, albeit somewhat generic, makes this film one of Jim Carreys all time best.

Another Jim carry movie that is fun but not serious

I was very surprised that this wasn't just a regular comedy, and that this was actually very well directed, with great cinematography, performances, and effects! I also liked the tone a lot! The score was also good! The writing is fine. I was a little surprised that there was surprisingly little of Jim Carrey wearing The Mask. He gives a great performance by the way. I can't say I laughed too much, but not because it wasn't funny, it just wasn't stuff that made me laugh out loud. Overall, I was surprised that this was more than just a comedy, and that it was very well made. I think I'd like the show a bit more, despite Jim Carrey not voicing, because it would probably have more of The Mask, and be more of what I want to see. It would also be animated, which is a plus. It'd probably remind me of Freakazoid, another one of my favorites! (Shows.)

A perfect dark Jim Carrey comedy. Much better than the Cable Guy.

One of the funniest satires of the super-hero movies genre. Jim Carrey was the perfect choice for the role and with his carisma and energy, the material was elevated very easily. It might have some predictable problems, but in the end we don't need to take sort of stuff too seriously. So have fun!

One of Jim Carrey's best movies. I watched the Animated Series all the time when I was just a few years old. Rob Paulsen did at least as good a job voice acting Stanley Ipkiss and The Mask as Jim Carrey did live acting them.

The mask staring Jim Carrie was a funny movie what I think is funny my favorite line in this movie was Smoking that made me laugh. So if you need a funny movie see this one!

My childhood favorite movie!

This review will be short, but the mask is directly put the fun. Jim Carrey entertains a fine performance as a man, which becomes the mask by means of limitless, especially stretchy green-faced dudes. Comic story line playing, and especially Carrey doing the best performance. One of the best comedies.

Whoever made the decision to make this a fun family fest instead of a gorefest from the comics is a genuis. *great movie

Jim Carrey is smoking as The Mask!

Despite this film being awful, it was significant for a number of reasons. The film was a device to launch Jim Carrey to superstardom; it launched Cameron Diaz's career; was an early example that ushered in modern CGI effects. It was also a blockbuster success.

I consider this a dark comedy. It isn't funny. It isn't for children. It isn't pleasant or enjoyable to watch. The Mask character is not a fun character at all. Jim Carrey has made several of these blockbuster successes that are horrible films , such as How The Grinch Stole Christmas and The Cable Guy. These films are not funny nor pleasant viewing experiences. Perhaps these are qualities that Carrey brings to these films himself.

What surprises me is that this could have been more light-hearted, with The Mask character being more child-friendly. This would have launched The Mask dolls, games and sequels. Instead this was a massive success in its day and become largely forgotten. It is NOT a classic.

Not a bad movie for a comic-based story.
