Dr. Neuman: The Mifulu represent a fascinating example of failed culture. The people of the Mifulu communicated entirely in rhyme, although that's actually less impressive than it sounds, because their language only contained one vowel. Also, if you've noticed, the only artifacts we've been able to unearth are primitive musical instruments. The Mifulu's had plenty of drums, guitars, harmonicas and the like, but no weapons or tools.

Son of the mask is decent and fun
9 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Son of the mask has been getting too much hate and IMDb users are rating it as the "worst film I've ever seen" its not Evan close if you want to see a film with that stats watch home alone 4 or jaws the revenge.Son of the mask has a very good plot but bad cast, some of the actors in this film did a very bad job but some did OK. this film is no where near as good as the original film the mask but its still and fun and decent sequel and dose not deserve the hate it gets i give it 5/10 for the great story and in parts the slight improvement of plot, the only thing that really spoils this film is the acting. But if you really liked the first one and you just want a nice relaxing fun film to watch with your kids son of the mask is great :D
