Ah... '''''The Mask''''', a fun little JimCarrey romp from 1994. It's one of his works from early on in his A-list film career; specifically his first film to arrive in theaters after ''Film/AceVentura Pet Detective''. It's built on {{slapstick}} comedy and Jim Carrey contorting his face a little more than usual, and turned out to be very popular. It is based, FilmOfTheBook style, on [[ComicBook/TheMask the comic book of the same name]]. Well, sort of. The original is ''not'' harmless slapstick, fitting much better in the comedy horror genre.

** Also, DirtyHarry (probably a shout out for Creator/ClintEastwood being one of Jim Carrey's impersonations in stand-up as well as Carrey having a minor part in ''Film/TheDeadPool''), and Sally Field at the Oscars, following this gem of a quote:

** Peter Riegert's character as well, which isn't all that surprising given one of his [[AnimalHouse earliest roles]].

* BagOfHolding: The Mask's pockets while being frisked by the police. Mind you, this is STILL by far more humane than what he did to the mechanics in the comic book, who were brutally murdered with engine parts.

** The Mask himself fits this trope when he gets carried away on his date with Tina. Unlike Stanley, who's too shy and reserved, the Mask tends to come on a bit too strong.

* MuggingTheMonster: A street gang tries this with The Mask. Bad idea. In a deleted scene, they originally robbed Stanley.



* TransformationTrauma: Surprisingly, this is NOT from the original comic, where the Mask just slips on and off. In the movie, it looks incredibly painful.

Of course, he has no way of knowing that the Mask is a magical manifestation and Stanley has no control over his actions.



* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Stanley and Milo when they don the mask. This is apparently the way the mask functions. The only ones that are immune to this are those who already are insane.
