Based on the comic book of the same name, The Mask stars rubber faced Jim Carey as Stanley, the romantically doomed nice guy who is always taken advantage of and yearns for companionship as opposed to his dull life as a banker. When the gorgeous Tina Carlyle (Cameron Diaz) sits at his desk to open an account and seems flirtatious, his wounded self-esteem simply cannot fathom this possibility and his awkwardness kicks in. At least for Stanley, he has the loyal companionship of Milo, his clever Jack Russell.

After a disastrous night of his "average" life, he mistakes some floating debris inthe river for a drowning man. Stanley jumps into the river and is rewarded only with an odd mask for his trouble. But before you can say Shazam, Stanley discovers that donning that mask transforms him into an extrovert godlike creature with supernatural powers.

All his inhibitions repressed, Stanley becomes The Mask, and woe to those who’ve previously abused him. Drawn to the nightclub where Tina appears nightly as a singer, Stanley is quickly embroiled in conflict with underworld boss Dorian Tyrell (Peter Greene) and finds himself being pursued by the police, Lt. Mitch Kellaway (Peter Riegert) in particular.

Inspired by the animated musings of Tex Avery, who created a hyper-exaggerated style that inspired many Hollywood animators to come, and aided by the wizards at Industrial Light and Magic, Chuck Russell has fashioned a funny fantasy that was Jim Carrey’s most successful comic role to date. His energy and outrageousness are ideally suited to the antics of The Mask. It should also be noted that this is Cameron Diaz's first role and apart from her drop dead gorgeous looks, she really proves that she is more than a pretty face.

Presented in stunning Blu-ray widescreen, the colours of this are extremely vibrant which go hand in hand with the movie. Match that with Dolby True HD and this movie is a first class cinematic experience. With a variety of special features that include "Behind the Story" and some additional scenes and this is the definitive version of The Mask that we could happily recommend to a variety of viewers.
