The Mask

Continuity mistake: When Dorian puts on the mask for the first time, right before all the smoke starts reducing, pay close attention to his goons. Some of them change position. (Clearly those were two takes pasted together, one with Dorian without the mask, and one with.) (01:04:25)

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.

Continuity mistake: When Dorian, as The Mask, breaks down the doors of the Coco Bongo, you see the door topple onto the doorman on the left. When the camera cuts back, he is on top of the door. (01:17:25)

Continuity mistake: When Dorian's boss shoots him in the stomach it switches from the boss to Dorian several times. Each time Dorian's buttons change colours from black buttons to white buttons to no buttons. (01:18:25)

Continuity mistake: When Tina goes to the jail and meet Stanley they almost kiss for the first time. She is wearing bright red lipstick. A few minutes later she is running down an alley outside of the prison from Dorian. She is wearing soft pink lipstick. (01:09:00)

Continuity mistake: While in Mrs. Peenmans' hall, just before she shoots him, his hands switch places on the mallet. In the first shot, his left hand is on the bottom, right hand is on the top. In the other two shots, it is vice-versa. (00:18:15)

Continuity mistake: When Stanley is in jail, he put toilet papers on the toilet seat. But a few seconds later the toilet paper is not on the toilet. (01:10:35 - 01:13:10)

Trivia: The Mask is based off the Dark Horse Comic of the same name. The only difference is that Dark Horse Comics carry a lot of dark tones in their comics. When Chuck Russell was directing The Mask, it was supposed to be set in that way. When Jim Carrey was given the role of Stanley Ipkiss, it was turned into a comedy.

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.
