Son of the Mask

Released 2003 Rating PG
Director Lawrence Guterman Writer/s Lance Khazei
Starring  Jamie Kennedy, Traylor Howard, Alan Cumming
Source of story An original screenplay – based on the original Jim Carey film.
Elevator Pitch Odin has send Loki down to earth to recover “the mask” which has been lost, but recovered by the Avery’s Jack Russell. At a company fancy dress Avery dons the mask and turns into a wild cartoon character leading the staff in madcap dances. He also has sex with his wife and the product is a baby “born of the mask”. And Loki is still on the trail…
Content Lots of cartoonish action from the father, the baby and the dog. There is cartoon violence. People are hit and blown up – including the dog – but nobody dies, or is injured.
A View I had never heard of any of these actors, a bad sign, but when I looked it turns out that Traylor Howard was Monk’s assistant. Also this film got the worst reviews of any I have written about, but it was not the worst in my view. They were careful with the baby, so don’t expect too much.
