Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Ah... The Mask, a fun little Jim Carrey 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 Ace Ventura: 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, Film of the Book style, on the comic book of the same name. Well, sort of. The original is not harmless slapstick, fitting much better in the comedy horror genre.The story of the film follows twenty-something Edge City banker Stanley Ipkiss as he finds a magical mask, endowed with the powers of the Norse Trickster god Loki, which effectively makes the wearer completely immune to absolutely everything, and capable of practically anything. In Stanley's case, this manifests as gaining the Reality Warper abilities of his beloved classic Tex Avery characters (stretching, shapeshifting, bouncing back from Amusing Injuries, and the like). While not quite reaching With Great Power Comes Great Insanity levels, he does use it to get back at the people that bullied the shy reserved nice guy Stanley, and to woo nightclub-singer Tina Carlyle (Cameron Diaz in her feature-film debut). When other less savory individuals get hold of it, the results are not so amusing.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Following the success of this film was a well-received (and often very naughty) Saturday morning animated adaptation in 1995, which lasted until 1997.It had a Carrey-less pseudo-sequel, Son of the Mask, in 2005, which starred Jamie Kennedy and a CGI baby. It was poorly received by fans and critics.Not to be confused with Mask, a 1980s drama about a young man with a facial deformity and his family, the Canadian horror film The Mask, or the toy-based cartoon M.A.S.K..

This Was His True Form: When a piece of the Mask's tie is shot off at the Coco Bongo, it reverts into the pajamas Stanley was wearing when he transformed. This convinces Kellaway that the Mask is Stanley, since they have a distinctive pattern.

Diesel Punk: Edge City is a world that is in equal parts the 1940s (when the cartoons the Mask copies were made) and the 1990s; there is modern technology, but the title character is a zoot-suited ladies man anti-hero, the buildings wouldn't look out of place in an old gangster movie, and the soundtrack is a swanky neo-swing.

Cruel and Unusual Death: An infamous deleted scene was going to have the Big Bad kill Peggy by crushing her to death using a printing press instead of Stanley after the latter is forced to give up the titular Mask so that the villain can become the Mask himself. Peggy then emerges out of the printing press as a newspaper written entirely in red ink, has a picture of her screaming, and is entitled "Reporter Killed in Freak Accident."

Breaking the Fourth Wall: The Mask looks and speaks to the viewers multiple times. Considering he's basically a living Tex Avery creation, it makes sense. The Oscar-winning scene: the theater audience (shown using shadows at the bottom of the screen) applaud him for his ‘acting’, and Dorian and his goon, realizing they’re on screen, awkwardly fix their hair.

When The Mask barricades the Landfill Park gate to escape from Kellaway and Doyle he turns around to find SWAT, a helicopter, and dozens of cops right behind him.

Funny Background Event During The Mask's faux Oscar speech, the villains do their best to look presentable for the camera. When the criminals begin to take hostages in the Coco Bongo, Stanley's cranky landlady scolds the thugs for talking back to the mayor as they're being rounded up. She's later seen escorted out of the building by a policeman while complaining about the rude criminals. When Ipkiss yells back at his boss, two police officers in the background seem to be laughing at the scene unfolding.

 The Mask / int_2ec87029

Sadly Mythtaken The first film makes out that Odin banished Loki into a mask, from Valhalla, due to his mischievousness. Such a thing never happened (the closest is that Loki was banished from the company of the gods for many other reasons that culminated in duping Hodir into killing Baldur). Nor was Valhalla the home of the Norse Gods, Odin in particular had many other residences in Asgard. A more accurate statement would have been to say that Odin banished him from Asgard (a mildly accurate statement, at least). Loki appears in the sequel, and more or less angrily says that the guy who said this was full of shit. The same film also makes the statement that Loki is Odin's biological son rather than his blood brother (the Marvel Comics trap), though. He's also not a "night god", though trickster god is a fair description.

Adaptational Heroism
 The Mask / int_3f45f1e6
comment
Adaptational Heroism: The Mask itself. In the comic books it is deliberately malevolent and corrupting and compels its wearers to commit atrocity after atrocity with the immense power it gives them, before they die and it goes to its next "master". In the film it simply removes all inhibitions, letting the wearer do whatever they want to. This is why Stanley Ipkiss becomes a wisecracking mischief-maker, but the villain lets loose with all of his evil. The same can be said for Stanley Ipkiss himself. In the film he's a lovable loser with a lot of nevertheless redeeming qualities who ultimately learns to stop relying on The Mask to solve his problems, rises to the occasion, and gets the girl. In the comics he's a right-wing lunatic who uses The Mask as his personal hitman to kill those who wronged him for increasingly trivial reasons (such as suffocating his elementary school teacher), goes on a violent rampage against the police, and is ultimately shot and killed by his girlfriend.

Beneath the Mask
 The Mask / int_4fbc0887
comment
Beneath the Mask: Although it doesn't get played straight (it just happens literally), this trope is one of the major themes of the movie. As laid out by the psychiatrist, everyone wears social masks hiding who they really are underneath. Putting on the supernatural artifact causes the wearer to tear off their mask and embody their id. This means that Stanley becomes The Mask by removing his social mask, though, ironically, to do so, he puts a real mask on. In the end, he has to take off this mask, and in doing so, finds a balance for himself. This still holds true for Dorian as well, since the mask that the artifact rips away is his pretenses of being a classy old-school style mobster with a legitimate business and a sense of fair play. He becomes a blunt, brutal, thoughtless thug who kills for fun and can't think beyond his next step in getting what he wants.

Disproportionate Retribution The Ass Shove applied to the mechanics.

Reality Warping Is Not a Toy: Played with; Stanley is a good guy and therefore as The Mask is Fun Personified and uses his powers largely for personal amusement (he does get a little payback in on the side, though). Dorian is a bad guy so as The Mask he's a vaguely demonic Humanoid Abomination who abuses his powers for revenge and murder.

Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Played straight and inverted in the same scene. While emptying The Mask's pockets in the park, the police find a pair of "funny eyeball glasses", to which The Mask acts as if they are incriminating ("I've never seen those before in my life."), but when a bazooka is extracted, he calmly states "I have a permit for that".

What Happened to the Mouse?: Peggy Brandt, who seems to disappear from the main action towards the end. In a deleted scene, we saw her death: Dorian Tyrell caught her trying to sneak off with her money, at which point he threw her into a newspaper machine. This being "The Mask," her death was cartoonish: an "extra edition" came out of the machine, printed in red ink. Peggy's visibly pained face was on the front page, along with the accompanying headline.

Took a Level in Badass: The entire climax of the film — Stanley without the Mask breaks out of jail, cold cocks the guard, takes the detective who was hounding him hostage and walks out of the precinct (pretending to be his prisoner and pleading his innocence!). He then arrives at the club, knocks out ANOTHER guard, takes ANOTHER gun and faces off with Evil Mask. All this from the meek "Nice Guys Finish Last" banker. Oh yeah that's a level of Badass alright. This is after shouting down his boss in epic fashion after the money-swindler tries to chew him out for being late. Definitely a step up from earlier in the movie.

Leit Motif: The Mask itself has not one, not two, but THREE separate themes depending on the mood. There's a mysterious, mystical theme that plays during scenes with the Mask by itself to show it to have otherworldly properties. There's an upbeat, jazzy tune that plays whenever Ipkiss puts on the Mask, showing how fun and wacky it can be. And finally, there's a more foreboding tune that's heavy on brass to show the Mask's dark side.

Hero Insurance: Stanley breaks out of a jail cell, assaults an officer, steals his gun, kidnaps another officer at gunpoint and steals his car, yet receives no punishment. Even worse, he committed the crime he was held for and there was evidence of him doing so. The trope is justified because the mayor thinks Stanley is a hero who was framed by Dorian. Plus, many of those things Stanley committed weren't entirely his fault, and he had to escape from the cell to save Tina and stop Dorian.

Never Give the Captain a Straight Answer: Dorian Tyrell sends his minions to rob a bank. Later on, one of them shows up unexpectedly and is somewhat unresponsive to Tyrell's question. It turns out that another minion is upstairs dying from gunshot wounds.

Oh, Crap! Tyrell's henchmen after The Mask pulls out his multiguns. Every single one of them is a "Bang!" Flag Gun. Also the street gang when The Mask finishes making his last balloon-sculpture. When The Mask barricades the Landfill Park gate to escape from Kellaway and Doyle he turns around to find SWAT, a helicopter, and dozens of cops right behind him. He's so terrified his eyes, skull, and tongue leap out of his face as he screams. Before that, the Mask says it when a police officer pulls out a picture of Kellaway's wife. Tina, when she sees that Dorian is bringing dynamite into the club.

Opposing Combat Philosophies: Stanley and Dorian's use of the Mask are significantly different. Stanley takes full advantage of the Mask's reality-warping magic for creative Toon Physics and assumes a number of colorful and energetic personas. By contrast, Dorian relies entirely on brute force with his most innovative use of the mask being when he absorbs the bullets from Niko's gun and shoots them back at him.

Anti-Hero: Stanley fits the classical Greek definition of the term. The Mask himself is probably an Unscrupulous Hero. Even though he isn't as violent as most anti-heroes, he's still willing to do many unheroic things with little regard for those around him. Both Stanley and his Mask persona graduate to full (and in the Mask's case, very weird) hero status by the end of the film.

One notable Shout-Out to a live-action movie is to The Untouchables. When the hero is frisked, his Bag of Holding turns up a whole lot of junk, including a BAZOOKA, to which he calmly says, "I have a permit for that," precisely the same words used in similar circumstances by Frank "the Enforcer" Nitti. The last item pulled out is a photograph which is a nod to actor Peter Riegert's previous work on Animal House.

Lighter and Softer: In the original comic, Stanley starts out as a half decent guy, but quickly degenerates into a Jerkass Psycho Killer under the Mask's influence. The Mask in the comic has an actual personality, and talks to (and through, when it's being worn) its "owner", and no-one appears to be able to wear the Mask without being corrupted. The film also allows victims of the Mask's shenaningans to get off with Amusing Injuries for the most part, whereas in the comics, the actions might be amusing but the injuries most certainly are not.

Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Aside from Dorian, people seem more interested in Stanley's crimes as The Mask than his blatant Reality Warper powers. For instance the cops are seemingly unfazed when they frisk him and pull dozens of items from his pockets larger than the pockets, and a group of muggers are happy to receive balloon animals from the man they were just mugging who has just changed clothes and produced a cane and podium from nowhere. People only start acknowledging the Mask's powers when Dorian wears it.

Breakout Character: Stanley Ipkiss, merely a one shot character from the original comics who lasted for about the same story arc he got introduced in, became the star in The Movie and since then became directly associated with The Mask, changing the original premise of the comic in which The Mask itself is what matters no matter who's the one wearing it.

The Vamp: Played with. On the surface, it seems Tina's this trope as she was only using Stanley's friendliness to infiltrate the bank Dorian and the gang were planning to rob. At the same time, Peggy Brandt seemed to honestly like Stanley. It later turns out to be the opposite as Tina is a nice girl really and is only around Dorian out of fear while Peggy is a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing who wanted the $50,000 bounty on The Mask so she wouldn't lose her condo. She even mentions this trope by name when Dorian arrives.

Evil Mask
 The Mask / int_f2d75f85
comment
The Mask itself. In the comic books it is deliberately malevolent and corrupting and compels its wearers to commit atrocity after atrocity with the immense power it gives them, before they die and it goes to its next "master". In the film it simply removes all inhibitions, letting the wearer do whatever they want to. This is why Stanley Ipkiss becomes a wisecracking mischief-maker, but the villain lets loose with all of his evil.

Magic Prerequisite: The Mask only works at night. If you put it on during the day, nothing happens. This is handwaved by saying Loki was a night god. The somewhat canon animated series said it was the Mask messing with Stanley.
