Audio problem: After The Mask gives his "Oscar winning speech" and Dorian sticks a gun in his face, "You're not going anywhere" can be heard. No one says this and was poorly recorded.

Suggested correction: If you look closely you can see Dorian is actually moving his mouth when the line is said, and he appears to be saying it through somewhat clenched teeth.

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

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.

Charlie Schumacher: A girl like that is always looking for the BBD. Bigger Better Deal.
Stanley Ipkiss: You don't know that, Charlie. She's an artist. She's... She's sensitive.
Charlie Schumacher: Stanley, listen to me. That girl will tear your heart out, put it in a blender and hit "frappe."

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.

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.
