Mask, The (DVD) (Re-release)
For a film heavily dependent on special effects, the best effect going in this 1994 comedy is the ever-expressive star, Jim Carrey, playing a shy bank teller who stumbles across an ancient mask that turns him into a green hepcat with extraordinary powers. Cameron Diaz plays the love interest, but the real purpose of the movie is to bring cartoonish energy and effects into a live-action production. Toward that end, director Charles Russell does the job, but the gimmick wears out quickly for those easily bored by this sort of pseudo-animation. Lots of kids adore the film, though, and why not? The hero gets to be a whirlwind of mischief and still get the girl. The DVD release includes optional full-screen and widescreen presentations, deleted scenes, trailers, optional French soundtrack and optional French and Spanish subtitles. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Imagine a cyclone, a Tex Avery cartoon come to life as a zoot-suited fashionista and the wiggy energy of a vat full of jumping beans and that still doesn't capture Jim Carey's comic genius as Stanley Ipkiis, a repressed bank clerk who goes from zero to hero when he dons The Mask. The mysterious mask Stanley Ipkiis finds allows him to do what he normally can't, like woo Tina [Cameron Diaz] and beat the baddies. Beneath all that loopy fun is the film's heart: Does Stanley really needs the mask to be the person he longs to be? Flat-out smoking'!

STORYLINE:Stanley Ipkiss is a nobody who works in a bank but when he discovers an ancient mask(that belonged to the god of mischief,Loki) and put it on,he transforms into a weird party animal green character that attracts attention everywhere and with it he saves the woman he loves(Cameron Diaz)emprisonned by a bad guy,classic stuff,really.
What really makes the character a hit is Jim Carrey`s way of playing the character of the mask,making him over the top and funny.The Mask had a lot of special effects for the time(1994)and it was originally going to be a horror movie!Jim Carrey got the role so they changed it to make it funny.
This DVD edition of "The Mask" is the most recent 2005 edition,released around the time of "Son Of Mask",2 of the movie`s scenes were cut,that doesn`t prevent it from being great and enjoyable but it think it was useless.
CONCLUSION:The Mask is definatly a movie that has stood the test of time,and one of Jim Carrey`s best movies,a great comedy for all,highly recommended.
The character John Ipkiss is a worker in NYC whose job goes down the toilet until he discovers an ancient artifact that resembles a mask of some sort and when he puts it on, it causes him to transform into a wildly erratic genius who goes totally beserk and Ipkiss decides to use the mask to fight crime in NYC but his mask is saught by a greedy criminal mastermind bent on taking over New York and kidnaps Ipkiss's love interest and threatens to kill her if time runs out and now Ipkiss with the power of hte mask must stop the madman before it's too late.
The ride throughout this movie is just hilarious and the comedic wit of Jim Carrey carries this film the whole way through. Go and get this movie as soon as possible. It's a classic for all ages to come.
