Years before this sequel, plans for an earlier sequel to The Mask (1994), called "The Mask II", were in the works. Nintendo Power magazine even had a contest; first prize was a walk-on role in that movie. However, the project was canceled. See more »


The first time Loki looks through the mask's eye holes, nothing is printed on the back. Later, when Loki looks at the back of the mask, "Made in Taiwan" is printed on the back. See more »

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. So, in essence, they had rhythm, they had music, but they had ...

NO COMPARISON! However the kids loved it.
2 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It would be a serious mistake to compare this movie with the original movie the MASK. I do not consider this a sequel. This movie stands alone and seemingly is aimed at a younger crowd than the first. I watched this with my two sons who are 7 and 8 and they did not stop laughing. They absolutely loved it and told me to rate this movie a 9 out of 10. I admit the acting was poor but the animation was outstanding and extremely funny. My expectations going in to the movie was to laugh a lot. This was achieved even though the movie itself was a bit strange and nothing like I expected. So if you want to see your kids laugh go to see this one. If your a big Jim Carrey or Cameron Diaz fan this is not for you (Note - They are not in it). It is funny that the MASK helped make both of them into superstars and now the budget for the sequel could not even come close to affording them.
