The Mask

Question: When you see the shot of Milo peeing on the long-haired thug, what are the other things sticking out Milo's body? It's in the first shot when he's peeing, but they're gone when the thug shoots at him, and he runs off.

Answer: I've looked at this scene very closely, and I don't see anything different about Milo between shots. Nothing is sticking out of him. He has a collar on with spikes on and maybe you are confusing the background with something that is coming out of him, but that is no different from the next shot.

Question: In a scene towards the end of the movie, where Tina asks Dorian to give her one last kiss before the time bomb blows up the Coco Bongo, Eddy (one of Dorian's men) wants to turn off the bomb. Why would Eddy suddenly want to change his mind and turn the bomb off if he's taking part in blowing up the Coco Bongo in the first place?

Chosen answer: Because they're lingering longer than he's comfortable with. He's not having second thoughts, he just wants to stop the timer temporarily until they're finally finished.

Question: Who is the actor that plays the character of Dorian when he has the Mask on? I looked on IMDB and there's a character by the name of The Figure, is that him?

Toolio

Answer: Garret Sato plays Dorian with the mask on. He is uncredited.

Hey Can you give proof that Garrett Sato played Dorian with the mask? I did not find any proof online for this. And anyway in the scene that ties Tina up at the club you can see Dorian with the mask and Garrett Sato together. Which means that either they used a special effect to see them both together but in fact there is only one, or this isn't true.

Answer: Hey Can you give proof that Garrett Sato played Dorian with the mask? I did not find any proof online for this! And anyway in the scene that ties Tina up at the club you can see Dorian with the mask and Garrett Sato together! Which means that either they used a special effect to see them both together but in fact there is only one player or it's all that's fake news. Waiting for an answer. Thanks.

Chosen answer: It's the same actor (Peter Greene) in the Mask as out of it. While there's a listing for a character called "The Figure", played by Robert O'Reilly, that appears to be from an online version of the script that includes a sequence that was cut from the finished film.

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.

Question: Why is the Character of Lt. Kellaway (Peter Riegert) so grumpy and cynical? What's up with him? Why didn't he thank Stanley Ipkiss at the end of the movie for saving their lives?

Answer: I think that the reason he is so grumpy and cynical is because he has been a police detective for SO long that all the crime he's investigated has made him jaded. I think that it is the same with any regular human being, one can only do the same thing day in and day out for so long before it affects you, negatively. Plus his home life may have been a contributing factor also. As to why he didn't thank Stanley, maybe he just didn't like him.

Answer: That is just in his character, some people are miserable, cynical by nature. It could be from outside influence as well, like having been a cop too long, crappy marriage, hemorrhoids.

Question: Why would he have to steal the money from the bank? Given everything else he makes.

Answer: While under the influence of the mask, Stanley repeatedly gets revenge on people that have wronged him. The Mask wouldn't even need to create money out of thin air to get into the club since he could just use his powers to get in, so since he feels that he is mistreated at the bank, he robs it.

Answer: Nothing he makes while The Mask is permanent, and when separated from him reverts or disappears, as we see with the piece of pajama. If he made money, for example to get into the club, then immediately after giving it to the people and walking inside, it would vanish, probably causing him then to be thrown out. As Phaneron said, in addition, by robbing the bank to get it, he also strikes back at one of those he feels mistreats him.

Question: Why is Stanley Ipkiss wearing different pyjamas the morning after his second transformation of the Mask? He was wearing the original ones when he put on the Mask the second night.

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: Because his pyjamas got torn when he was at the Coco Bongo - when he's shot at as the Mask, the piece of his tie that falls off transforms back into his pyjamas.

Question: Didn't Charlie notice that Ipkiss isn't with him when he enters the Coco Bongo? He is entering with the girls but didn't seem to notice that he wasn't with him.

Trainman

Answer: He was too busy with the girls and taking in the scene. He probably simply assumes Ipkiss followed them in and he lost sight of them, he didn't have to suspect he was left outside.

Question: Where did the Mask get the limo before the scene in Cocoa Bongo?

Answer: Either A: he rented the limo with the stolen money, or B: the limo itself is just another one of The Mask's absurd creations, given it is just so dang long.

Question: Is it true that Cameron Diaz's bra was stuffed with tissue paper (or other material) to make her chest look bigger?

Answer: She's never admitted to stuffing the bra but it is known that she had a significantly padded one from Frederick's of Hollywood to make her look curvier.

Question: When Stanley is driving the old banger of a car he got while his was being fixed, it is running very badly, but you see it keeps braking and the tyres screech. Why would the car keep braking like that?

pierpp

Chosen answer: Its just a sound effect. A car can brake like that if it has worn, uneven pads.

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)

More quotes from The Mask

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.
