** While wearing the Mask, Tim does impressions of Creator/MelGibson ("[[Film/{{Ransom}} Gimme back my son]]!"), Music/OzzyOsbourne (in a deleted scene), some kind of Neil Diamond / Tom Jones lounge singer hybrid, Creator/Al Pacino in ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'' ("Say hello to my little friend!"), not to mention of Creator/JimCarrey himself ("Ssssmokin! ...causes cancer!")

* VictimizedBystander: The neighbor's head is transformed into a giant nose.
** This applies to everyone that happens to be in Loki's way as he tries to find the mask. During the film he [[TearOffYourFace rips the face off a man]] in the museum, traumatises a nurse by [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet transforming into a copy of her]], sucks up a woman in a giant vacuum cleaner and attaches a plunger to a man's face so tightly that the skin stretches out when he tries to pull it off. None of these characters are ever shown again.

Pretty much everyone that happens to be in Loki's way as he tries to find the mask. During the film he [[TearOffYourFace rips the face off a man]] in the museum, traumatises a nurse by [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet transforming into a copy of her]], transforms a neighbor's head into a giant nose, sucks up a woman in a giant vacuum cleaner and attaches a plunger to a man's face so tightly that the skin stretches out when he tries to pull it off.

This movie was pretty much universally hated by everyone who's seen it. Sad thing is on the special features on the DVD, the cast and production team is very happy about making it. They talk excitedly about their roles and describe the [[SpecialEffectFailure top-notch special effects]] this movie "pioneered". [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously They were proud of their baby, in other words.]]

As the movie had time to settle down now, reactions are mostly mixed and many don't see it as bad as most made it out to be, citing it at least as a nice love letter to old school cartoons (particularly Creator/TexAvery and Creator/BobClampett style). Alan Cumming's portrayal of Loki was also applauded.

The plot concerns failed cartoonist Tim Avery (Jamie Kennedy), who is afraid of conceiving a child with his wife Tonya (Traylor Howard) because he believes his kid would be ashamed of him and his dead-end job. But then, he gets a hold of the Mask, which works its usual magic, transforming him into the green-faced cartoony maverick that not only becomes the toast of the company party, but also impregnates his wife without his consent. (Not rape, mind you!)

But that's not the end of it! The [[NorseMythology Norse god]] of mischief and original creator of the Mask, Loki himself (Alan Cumming) is making the rounds, trying to find the Mask to take it back to Valhalla because it's caused too much trouble in the human world, under the instruction of [[SadlyMythtaken his dad]], Odin the All-Father (Bob Hoskins). The movie's climax features a Mask'd Tim and Loki duking it out over possession of both the Mask and the Son it has spawned.

* SadlyMythtaken: Odin and Loki are not father and son in NorseMythology, they are bond brothers. And Loki would not have fooled Odin by telling him Balder was coming back. Balder is [[DeadToBeginWith dead]]... because Loki killed him. (indirectly, but still)

''Son of the Mask'' is the 2005 sequel to the 1994 Creator/JimCarrey [[FantasticComedy fantasy comedy]] ''Film/TheMask'', which was itself based on the [[ComicBook/TheMask Dark Horse Comics series of the same name]] about a magical green mask that gives [[RealityWarper strange, almost unlimited powers]] to anybody who wears it, but also causes them to lose all their inhibitions and self-control. The [[DarkerAndEdgier violent]] tone of the comics was toned down in the first film adaptation to suit Carrey's comedy stylings, so fans clamoring for a more loyal adaptation were displeased even more when ''Son of the Mask'' reduced the style further, to the point of making it [[LighterAndSofter family-oriented]].

** It was clearly established in the first movie that the mask only works at night, so how was Otis able to wear it during the day?
