When he dons an ancient Nordic mask, Stanley Ipkiss moves at warp speed, knows your every desire, satisfies your every whim and dances like Fred Astaire, Gumby and Barishnikov combined. He's s-s-s-smokin'! Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz star in this story of a sweet, socially inept bank teller who discovers a mask that transforms him into a superhero ... but one whom you may not want to call for help.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: It misses perhaps as often as it hits, but Jim Carrey's manic bombast, Cameron Diaz' blowsy appeal, and the film's overall cartoony bombast keep The Mask afloat.
The gangland plot is flimsy (bad guy Peter Greene wears too much eyeliner), and the jokes are erratic, but it's a far better showcase for Carrey's comic-from-Uranus talent than Ace Ventura.

Common Sense Says
A bit crude, but fun and relatively harmless.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film contains a great deal of cartoon violence. There are shootouts, some bloodshed, and a death off screen. Property is destroyed without consequence. A man is shown with a car muffler protruding from his behind. A condom is exposed briefly in a balloon gag. Several shots focus on a woman's cleavage and jokes intimating sex are numerous.
