3.0 out of 5 stars Fun special effects chalked full of energy!!!, June 19, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Mask [VHS] (VHS Tape)
As a somewhat cautious viewer of in-your-face comedy I was a bit surprised by the level of enjoyment found in "The Mask". Jim Carrey's explosive energy works well as a zoot-suited Tex Avery cartoon character -- he stops at nothing when donning the ancient green mask. Unfortunately though, these times happen to be amoung the only few highlights of the film. There is not much in the way of plot or character development. The special effects that are used when the Mask is on screen are phenomanol, and are alone worth watching the film for. But if you're looking for more, check out the great soundtrack that accompanies the visual effects. Carrey's rendition of "Cuban Pete" is hilarious and with the revival of swing music, be sure not to miss the performance by Royal Crown Revue. It's smooookin!! Fans of Cameron Diaz will find her movie debut as Tina Carlyle, a sultry nightclub singer, the first in a long line of amazing performances. Another supporting character worth mentioning is Milo the dog, Carrey's nemesis. Whenever on camera, he steals the scene. (For a spectacular special effect check out Milo near the end). If your're looking for a fun, energy packed film without too much complication, you'll be sure to enjoy "The Mask". If your're not a big fan of Carrey's humor you may want to skip this one, but be assured, it's much easier to swallow than "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective". END

Time has made the difference for me regarding " The Mask", I initially disregarded it as
an empty special effects flick. At 57 and a father of a nine year old I've since
come to appreciate Carrey (an undeniably premiere comedy talent, definitely
my favorite) as well as C. Diaz. (initially unimpressed with this debut, I've
come to high regards for her talent as well). A fun/silly film, one my son helped
turn me around on.
