The Mask (1994)

In Charles Russell's live-action comedy (with CGI-effects) reminiscent of Tex Avery's best cartoons:

  • Jim Carrey's tour-de-force of animated zany-ness, in a dual role as the mild-mannered and nerdy bank teller Stanley Ipkiss, and - after donning a magical mask - his metamorphosis into a zoot-suited (in bright yellow), green-faced, flamboyant and manic super-hero tornado and lady-killer, with the style of Tex Avery cartoons of the 40s
  • the scene of Stanley's first jaw-dropping sighting of bank customer Tina Carlyle (Cameron Diaz in her screen debut) after entering the lobby from a rainstorm
Views of Bank Customer Tina Carlyle
  • and then Tina's second entrance as a sexy blonde night-club singer at the Coco Bongo Club that caused Stanley to drool over her (with his eyes popping, mouth/jaw dropping and tongue hanging out), and motivated him to engage in a frenzied, drum-accented dance ("Let's rock this joint") with her - to the sounds of Cab Calloway's "Hi De Ho"
  • during the physically-impossible dance sequence in the Coco Bongo nightclub, Stanely's smooch, when he leaned her down, gave her a toothy and lascivious grin, and descended for the kiss, shot in close-up
  • Stanley's scene-stealing dog Milo (Max, a Jack Russell terrier)
  • with lots of quotable lines and familiar one-liners, such as: "OOO, somebody stop me" and "SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS-MOKIN!", or sight-gags ("Sorry, wrong pocket" when he pulled out a condom)
  • the image of Stanley with gigantic guns pulled out - a la Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry with referential humor: "You gotta ask yourself one question. 'Do I feel lucky?' Well do ya? Punks!"
