  1. An astonishingly lazy and perfunctory effort that does little to realize his (Carrey) comic potential.

    "The Mask" is very childesh in a general term despite it's elite CGI. BUT. It's Jim Carrey's half real, half animated acting that saves the movie.

    The Mask is good movie on a small level, it's entertaining, it's relatively funny, and it introduces us to Cameron Diaz. It is certainly not a must-see, great movie, but just simply OK? Full Review »

    The Mask is a outright children's classic. Grotesque, funny and full of color it's guaranteed to send kids into a Loki fueled frenzy. For adults, The Mask makes for a nostalgic, sporadically funny but ultimately flawed movie. Love that dog, though! Full Review »
