Son of the Mask (2005)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Overly frantic, painfully unfunny, and sorely missing the presence of Jim Carrey.

Movie Info

Just as aspiring cartoonist Tim Avery gets over his fear of parenthood with the birth of his new son Alvey, he quickly finds himself in over his head as his new baby is born with the magical Mask's spectacular powers. Further complicating matters is the family's jealous dog, who turns the household upside down and sparks a comical kid-versus-canine battle for control of the Mask. But unbeknownst to them all, the mischievous Norse god Loki has come looking for his Mask, and is willing to do whatever it takes to get it back.

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

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.

In the five years I've been co-hosting this show, this is the closest I've ever come to walking out halfway through the film, and now that I look back on the experience, I wish I had.

Top Critic

If you are the son of Frankenstein, Flubber, Dracula, Lassie, Ali Baba, Sinbad, Billy the Kid, Davy Crockett, Robin Hood, Tarzan or Satan, you have to accept that the movie about you is likely not as good or memorable as the one about your dad.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

A film top-heavy with joyless Tex Avery-style special effects and a dancing-baby bit embarrassingly reminiscent of TV's Ally McBeal.

Top Critic

With so many cuts a second, all attention goes into following the visuals. Just as well, since the story leaves so little to work with.

Audience Reviews for Son of the Mask

Uh.

"The Mask" is the absolute funniest film i've ever seen in my life. CGI enhanced the first film and made it even better then it already was. In this case, it makes this cash in plummet into the dirt. Everything about this film is painful and there are no redeeming features at all. The script is bad, the acting is bad, the characters are awful but worst of all. It's missing Jim Carrey and the physical comedy that made the original a golden comedy classic. Depressingly it is one of the worst films i've ever seen in my life.
