Hilarious ... three generations can't be wrong.

The Mask starring Jim Carrey was first released in 1994 and is about a Bank clerk named Stanley Ipkiss who is transformed into a manic super-hero when he wears a mysterious mask. This new super-hero, the "Mask", falls in love with a singer, while he decides to eliminate every gangster in the city.
For me The Mask is one of Jim Carrey's best comedy films. Amazingly it is said that because of Jim Carey's ability to be flexible in body and his truly amazing facial expressions the producers did not need to digitally enhance them.
I first watched this film with my late parents when I was 34, my parents had never heard of Jim Carrey before this film and they laughed so much they almost cried. Next up was watching ' The Mask' with my eldest when he was eight years of age. The film made such an impression on him that he has watched every film starring Jim Carrey since.
No-one can manoeuvre their facial expressions quite like Jim Carrey and he must use his whole repertoire in The Mask, but let's not forget that he is also an actor and a darn good one at that.
