The Mask mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the very beginning, when the scuba diver is trying to open the chest and gets hit with the pipe, at first the pipe is held by a rope near the middle and when it's lowered into the water it is held by a chain at each end. After it hits the guy and is let go from the chains they are wrapped around three times. (00:01:00)

Audio problem: In the scene where Milo jumps at the cell window to save Ipkiss, Stanley says "good boy," but his mouth doesn't move. (01:13:00)

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 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 Ipkiss is in jail and he is summoning Milo, the dog jumps up through the bars. When Ipkiss pulls him through, one of the bars swings a little bit. It must not have been a very secure cell. (01:13:00)

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 Cameron Diaz 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 her boyfriend. 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)

Visible crew/equipment: After a masked Carrey leaves Landfill Park, an aerial camera and person swings back and forth near the top of the screen in the background during the conga line dance.

Suggested correction: Those aren't camera people, they are supposed to be tactical police officers on a rope line who get involved with the singing/dancing by swinging and doing some aerial flips. We'll ignore that the ropes just go up into the sky, but that is the kind of comedic movie this is.

Revealing mistake: When the super-stretch limo is pulling up to the club, we see window after window go by, then the picture cuts for a moment to the crowd watching. Upon returning to the limo shot, the edge of the front door can be seen on the left side of the screen, ruining the illusion of the ridiculously long limo. (00:36:50)

The Mask: Our love is like a red, red rose... And I am a little thorny.
