I just want to point out that his "over the top" antics is because the mask simply makes whoever wears it behave like a cartoon character. When I understood that, the movie was even funnier.

This is a classic Jim Carrey movie. Very funny with all his antics.

Is it a kids movie? An adult movie? Whoever this movie is for, it wasn't really for me. Obviously a classic now, for it's time it was perfect. Watching it now, however, it's a little queer for me.

Jim Carrey is by far the best actor for this role. Even if you don't like a lot of Jim Carrey's movies, this is probably one of his best movies. The overall plot is fairly predictable but the movie has a good message to it and the feats the mask accomplishes are hilarious. While Jim Carrey's acting may be too "big" for most people, the mask is supposed to be "big" acting. Hilarious scenes and decent special effects for a mid 1990s movie. Must see at least once, although I know Ive watched it at least half a dozen times since it hit the screen.

From zero to hero

"Reviewing the movie: I'm not a Jim Carrey fan, i'm really far from them (i think his acting in other movies is... well, dumb), besides, this movie is one of my favorites, and nobody could portray a better Mask character than Carrey.This movie is not only a feast of special effects (by the ILM guys, inspired in the cartoon antics of Tex Avery), musical numbers, and laughs; this movie also has a message in it -- "From Zero to Hero".Yeah! i know that this is part of the main title of the DVD (in theatres, it hasn't this title), somebody could think that Zero is refering to Stanley Ipkiss, and Hero is the Mask, but this title is NOT refering to the Stanley Ipkiss' Mask character, it's refering to Stanley Ipkiss himself! The Mask character is far from being a Hero, it's really a headache to Ipkiss and the society in general, but when Ipkiss realizes that he doesn't need the mask and began to confront his inner fears (and "the bad guys") without the mask help, that's when Ipkiss become a Hero... in the real life, somehow that's something that we can achieve when we stop "wearing our masks" and begin to act like ourselves, showing to the other who really are we.Reviewing the DVD: The audio and video quality are good (the sound is Dolby Surround 5.1 and the video is remastered); this is a double sided disc, in one side you get the Full Screen version of the film, in the other the Widescreen version (something common in "old" dvd's), in the extras side, you can see 2 deleted scenes (but without commentary..), an audio commentary by Chuck Russell (here you can learn why those 2 scenes where eliminated... unfortunatelly the audio comentary doesn't have any subtitles, so, if you're not an English speaker, probably you'll have a problem); audio in english and french, subtitles in spanish, french and english; the theatrical trailer.... the box says that the dvd has Production notes, but i can't find none.This is a good movie, and it doesn't matter if you're not a Carrey fan (like myself)"
Do not buy this expensive upscaled DVD

"I'm going to be quick and direct with this review by saying:

You are not getting anything more from this Blu-Ray edition than from buying the much cheaper DVD version. The video in this product is simply upscaled from the DVD and is not actually remastered.

Do not experience the loss of money lost by people who have been scammed by these liars who release The Mask and Terminator movies on Blu-Ray which are not actually in high definition as one would believe."

"Did you know that this excellent comedy was planed to be a horror?! Based on popular comic, THE MASK would be a storu about green killer who tells sarcastic remarks, while he's tearing a part his victims with an axe. But, when director Chuck Russell got Jim Carrey for this role he decided to do a comedy. And lucky for him and us he did a great job. I remember when I saw THE MASK for the first time. Fantastic story, interesting characters, and of course, Jim Carrey in role which made him famous. Story is about unsuccessful, shy banker who comes in possesion of an ancient wooden mask which turnes him into a wild, green, party creature who now has everything: powers, money and love. It influented on me so much that I find the same dog like Milo (that is one damn smart dog!). Carry gave the best of himself: he danced, sang and made jokes all the time. Cameron Diaz left me breathless, and two caps..., well, see it for yourself. This film guaranties fun whole 90 minutes it lasts and trust me, you will love it."
