The Mask
Video

Revealing mistake: When The Mask is dancing with Tina and he turns her into a human tornado while spinning her around, none of the onlookers in the crowd show the slightest bit of amazement at the impossible feat that just occurred in front of them, indicating that the extras were not directed to react to the special effects.

Revealing mistake: When Kellaway shows up at Stanley's apartment to question him about his pajamas and Stanley scrambles to stuff all the stolen bank money into his closet, you can see that a few of the bills are blank on the back side, revealing that the money is a fake movie prop.

Revealing mistake: When Milo is trying to jump up to the jail cell, the brick wall is not brick but plastic as can be heard from his paws scratching on it. (01:11:35)

Revealing mistake: In the alley, The Mask tells one of the street thugs that he's going to pull his underwear over his head. Here you can see that The Mask's rubber 'skin' is peeling up on the back of his neck.

Revealing 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)

Revealing mistake: They put the explosive down near the end and open it with a crowbar. As this is happening, the shot pushes in a tad. Notice a rough cut here as if the box wouldn't open as intended, so the editors spliced the scene together.

Revealing mistake: The first night at the Coco Bongo, when The Mask ducks the goons' bullets, the bullets don't shatter a single corner of the stage behind.

Revealing mistake: When Dorian breaks down the doors of the Coco Bongo, the doors have no hinges to help for the stunt.

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)

Revealing mistake: Dorian and his men are watching what we're assuming is a live feed from Tina at the bank. At one point the "video" stops as you can see a guard freeze. From that point on the video is a still picture.

Suggested correction: If you look at the top of the screen showing the bank video, you can see a multicolored distortion. This shows that they paused the video feed.

We also don't see their hands, so one of them easily could have paused it.

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.

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?

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.
