Son of the Mask

Critics 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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    February 19, 2005 | Rating: 2/4
  • A film top-heavy with joyless Tex Avery-style special effects and a dancing-baby bit embarrassingly reminiscent of TV's Ally McBeal.

    Seriously, how many sequels are there to Jim Carrey movies without Jim Carrey in it? Dumb and Dumber, The Mask, Ace Ventura...

    A comedy without a laugh, and a sequel without Jim Carrey. This is just utterly stupid. The material is seriously questionable, and not even kids will find this frantic and predictable comedy, any less than fun.
