  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.

    This is without doubt one of Jim Carreys best movies.

    Jim performs in the way only he can, I consider this one of my all time favourite movies, and I could watch it over and over and never get bored of it.

    Cameron Diaz looks incredible in this movie, probably the best she's ever looked in her career, she is quite litterally 'Smokin' watch her first scene in the bank, and you'll know what I mean!
