The Mask, 1994

Directed by Chuck Russell
Written by Mike Werb, story by Michael Fallon and Mark Verheiden
Starring Jim Carrey, Cameron Diaz, Peter Greene, and Peter Riegert

This is a really fun, high-spirited romp. Jim Carrey's energy and many voices are perfectly suited for this vehicle, and they pull of the special effects in just the right tone (I especially enjoyed his cowboy "death" followed by his Oscar® acceptance speech). This movie probably isn't as pleasurable for people who don't like old cartoons, but it's certainly a joy for those who do. Peter Riegert is also fun as the perpetually annoyed cop.
