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: 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 don't see them pause the video.

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

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.

Trivia: When Stanley, as the Mask, is emptying his pockets for the goons, he pulls out a condom, and says "Sorry, wrong pocket" - this was improvised on the spot by Jim Carrey for the scene.

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 until they're finally ready to leave.
