This review is from: Mask & Dumb & Dumber [Blu-ray] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
The Mask is a fantasy superhero comedy action film loosely based on the Dark Horse horror comic book series. Directed by Chuck Russell, it was released in 1994 and featured cutting edge special effects for the time. The film stars Jim Carrey as Stanley Ipkiss, a timid young man who finds the Mask of Loki that turns him into 'The Mask', an ultra-cool smiling trickster with incredible magical powers. Although I sometimes find Jim Carrey a bit over the top in some of his older movies like Ace Ventura Pet Detective 2 (and perhaps Dumb and Dumber here), he's perfectly cast in this movie, in fact he makes the film. Jim Carrey said that he characterized mild mannered Stanley after his own father, who was "a nice guy, just trying to get by". In her first major role, Cameron Diaz stars as Tina Carlyle, his sultry love interest. Feature run time is 101 minutes, and the film is rated 77% by Rotten Tomatoes. This Blu-ray version does the movie justice in terms of both video quality and sound, and the films special effects still look good (and not badly dated). I believe a remastered version of the The Mask is planned for the twentieth anniversary in 2014, but we are happy with this cheap Blu-ray edition.

In Dumb and Dumber, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels play the title roles in this literally stupid, fun comedy. Lloyd Christmas (Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Daniels) are two not-too-bright good hearted best friends who share an apartment so messy that gangsters aren't sure how they can trash the place. Intellectual it isn't, but it is clever, very daft and quite funny. Apparently Lloyd's chipped front tooth is real, as while Jim Carrey had his injured tooth capped many years ago, he thought a broken smile would suit Lloyd's character and so had the cap removed for the duration of filming. The movies rated 63% by Rotten Tomatoes. Feature run time is 113 minutes, and it was released in 1997.

Our teenage daughter (18) and son (17) really enjoyed these old movies, and we rate them 4* (Dumb & Dumber) and 5* (The Mask), and good value at 11 for the twin Blu-ray disk set. This US import set is region free, and despite stating 'not authorised for sale outside the USA' on the box, they play perfectly on our UK Region 2 Blu-ray players and the Sony PS3. Our two disk set came from 'Fulfillment Express', and being fulfilled by Amazon it arrived far quicker than the Amazon resellers based in the USA I normally use. Both these movies look and sound good in Blu-ray, and there's quite a few extras like 6 minutes extra footage and additional scenes in Dumb & Dumber, plus a documentary and alternative endings. The Mask has additional scenes, Director's commentary, a 'retrospective' documentary, Diaz's screen test, and a Cartoon Logic and Milo the dog featurette. The audio and SOH subtitles are in English only, no other languages, and the video is 16:9 with 5.1 audio. The Mask is UK age rated PG (age 7+), and Dumb and Dumber is rated 12 (under 12s may view with an adult). The Mask has cartoon like violence, a cute dog called Milo, and it's not that scary for older kids. Dumb and Dumber has themes more suited to secondary schoolkids/young adults. For kids under 12 also check out the PG rated kids movie Son of the Mask [DVD], which my children enjoyed aged about 9.
