  • The movie is based on a comic book, also called "The Mask", published by Dark Horse comics.

  • No. All the characters impersonated or just played are played by Jim Carrey. He plays both Stanley Ipkiss and The Mask.

  • Originally, there were plans to make a sequel to The Mask after its release. However, these plans fell through after Jim Carrey opted not to reprise his role. Carrey felt that, based on his experiences in filming Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995) (1995), reprising his character in a sequel to The Mask would not have offered him any challenges as an actor. Nevertheless, a sequel was made, Son of the Mask (2005) (2005), although it featured a different cast and crew to the previous film and unlike its predecessor, was a major critical and commercial failure. Furthermore, there was an animated TV series The Mask (1995) (1995-1997) that was based on this film.

  • Detective Doyle (played by Jim Doughan) is Lt. Mitch Kellaway's arrogant, tough, cynical, dumb, stupid, fat and ugly partner who hinders more than helps Kellaway and has a penchant for doughnuts while assisting Kellaway in following the trail of the Mask. It is unclear if Doyle's behaviour and his brainlessness is part of a mental and behavioural disorder. Doyle has no business being a police detective and belongs in a madhouse.

  • Dorian placed a mob bounty of $50,000 on the head of the Mask. Upon learning that Stanley is the Mask, Peggy made a deal with Dorian to turn over Dorian to him in exchange for the money and that Stanley would not be harmed, unaware that Dorian was lying.
