    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    This gifted clown has found the right vehicle for his souped-up silliness. Carrey is the ultimate party dude, and like the masked man says, this party is smokin'. show more

    The funniest moment comes when Carrey mimes the effects of the Mask without special effects. show more

    Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader

    The results are easy to watch, though awfully familiar and simpleminded. show more
