The Mask

Continuity mistake: When Dorian dismisses his charges to capture the Mask for 50,000.00, Tina and Dorian chat. She is about to light her cigarette but doesn't. In the next cut away there is smoke in the air but she still hasn't lit it yet. As the scene continues you only see smoke when Diaz has her back to the camera.

Continuity mistake: The "loaner" car Stanley picks up at the mechanics is a 1951 Studebaker Champion. However, the car that falls apart on the bridge is a 1950 Studebaker Commander.

Continuity mistake: When The Mask first visits the Coco Bongo and dances wildly with Tina, they perform a series of impressive manouvers and The Mask then dips Tina and holds her in that position. At this moment, Tina is revealed to be a stunt double, not Cameron Diaz, just before the camera zooms into a close up of Jim Carrey.

More trivia for The Mask

Question: The question of the car braking is to why is the car actually braking. I understand why it makes a screeching noise as the car brakes, but what I don't understand is why a car would brake automatically. I mean, you have to push the brake pedal to operate the brakes, cars don't brake automatically. When Stanly is driving the car, there wouldn't be a need for him to accelerate and brake like that, so why does the car keep braking?

Chosen answer: It's an old car, so obviously a numbr of things could be wrong with it, like the clutch or the engine. Faults with either of these things would cause a car to brake in this way.
