    The result is a movie character who seems half real, half animated.

    As a comedy, The Mask is genial, but its recycled plot is far too thin for the film to succeed as either an adventure or a spoof.

    This gifted clown has found the right vehicle for his souped-up silliness. Carrey is the ultimate party dude, and like the masked man says, this party is smokin'.

    Carrey's jolly green mug carries Mask. [29 July 1994, p. D1]

    This showcase for the talents of Jim Carrey is adroitly directed, viscerally and visually dynamic and just plain fun.

    Carrey's a human cartoon, and his spontaneous, Avery-esque, anything-for-a-laugh outrageousness makes this otherwise blank Mask a must-see.

    "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.

    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!
