Starring: Jim Carrey, Cameron Diaz, Peter Riegert, Peter Greene
Bright-coloured suits, over-the-top acting, slapstick humour, irritatingly stupid and laugh out loud funny, that is how you describe Jim Carrey. The Mask defines Carrey's every acting style and the role seems to be perfectly tailor-made for him. Stanley Ipkiss (Carrey) is a bank clerk who receives a hot and sexy new client Tina Carlyle (Diaz) who wants to open a new account. In reality, Tina is working for Dorian (Greene) one of the cities top criminals who is scouting the bank and is hatching a plot to rob it. On a night when everything seems to be going bad, Stan stumbles upon The Mask and discovers its unique powers. The Mask converts a person into a green-faced individual and makes that person everything they always wanted to be but never could be. Stan turns into a goofy, funny, cartoon-ish and over-romantic guy and decides to go around town getting some revenge. The movie stands for epic Jim Carrey humour, and is outrageously funny. Sure, the slapstick and stupid comedy may not appeal to all but there is no denying that the movie is a really amazing watch. Somebody stop him!
Thumbs up: Jim Carrey's nonsense all the way
Thumbs down: The kind of humour that all may not appreciate
