The only place for a movie like Son of the Mask is at the bottom of the bargain bin at your local Wal-Mart.

Guterman falls into the same trap he set for himself in the equally lifeless Cats & Dogs. There's nothing funny going on around those zany visuals.

It's doggie vs. baby vs. daddy vs. deity in a sequel so cartoonish it makes Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) look like a dry documentary.
| Original Score: 2/4

What we basically have here is a license for the filmmakers to do whatever they want to do with the special effects, while the plot, like Wile E. Coyote, keeps running into the wall.

The movie is dumb and loud, which some children will confuse with entertaining, but parents may question the appropriateness of some of the material.

Dumb and loud, with questionable material.

You know how awful this movie looks in the previews? Well, that's exactly how bad the movie actually is.

If your idea of a good time is watching your favorite cartoon classics butchered by a CGI dog and a creepy baby resembling a deleted scene from The Polar Express, then...

The mask works its bizarre corruption on the director, who wears it proudly. His slap-happy movie ricochets from one incomprehensible explosion of sound and color to the next.

Soaked through with garish FX gags and obvious looks at the "funnier" side of bowel movements, streaming urine, and bitten crotches. (But by all means, bring the tots.)

Kids aren't going to get the sexual innuendo, and not many adults will enjoy the blast of urine and splatters of snot and vomit.

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.

Making a sequel to The Mask without Jim Carrey is like trying to make peanut butter without peanuts.

Sequels without their original stars are usually sent direct to video. Some deserve better, [but] this isn't one of those.

Instead of Jim Carrey's clowning being the film's raison d'etre, it is the sub-par mayhem of Jamie Kennedy and a computer-animated dog and baby.

If you are a fan of cheap knock-offs devoid of originality such as Disney's direct-to-video sequels, you might find something here.

February 17, 2005
The infantilization of Son is a serious misstep, replacing the earlier film's bawdy vibe for one that resembles an acid-trip episode of Yes, Dear.

Also struggling vainly against the visual effects are Traylor Howard as Kennedy's wife and Bob Hoskins as Cumming's father, the god Odin.

A transparently minimal effort in which many jokes and pivotal plot points are grossly inappropriate for children.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4

...messy and meandering. Clearly, this banal computer-generated clunker has all the witty bounce of a disabled kangaroo. Mask needs to hide its hideous face
