Stanley Ipkiss (Jim Carrey) is a bank clerk that is an incredibly nice man. Unfortunately, he is too nice for his own good and is a pushover when it comes to confrontations. After one of the worst days of his life, he finds a mask that depicts Loki, the Norse night god of mischief. Now, when he puts it on, he becomes his inner, self: a cartoon romantic wild man. However, a small time crime boss, Dorian Tyrel (Peter Greene), comes across this character dubbed "The Mask" by the media. After Ipkiss's alter ego indirectly kills his friend in crime, Tyrel now wants this green-faced goon destroyed.Written by

If you look closely, you will notice that the Mask wears clothing whose patterns match the pattern/color of Tina's clothes. For example, in their first scene together (the dance scene at the Coco Bongo), The Mask wears a yellow zoot suit while Tina wears a white and gold mini-dress (which symbolizes their attraction, for they both are wearing the same color of "yellow-gold/ or banana-yellow"). In the second scene (the Park Serenade scene) The Mask wears black and white French mime clothing (indicating his imitations of Pepe Le Pew) while Tina is wearing black pants, and a jacket with a black and white pattern on it ( the main colors of Penelope Pussycat, Pepe Le Pew's love interest). In their last scene (the scene where The Mask rescues Tina by swallowing Tyrell's bomb and flushes him down the Coco Bongo's ornamental fountain), the Mask wears a pinstriped Mafia suit, while Tina wears a vertical stripe-patterned dress.

I don't know. You just put it on.

Boss! You better be carefull, huh?

What a rush!
Wow, boss! You're okay?
Better than ever, you idiot.
What do we do with Ipkiss?
