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.
Trivia: When Stanley is the Mask he does many different things from Looney Tunes cartoons in this movie. If you look around Stanley's house you will see a lot of Looney Tunes memorabilia such as the Porky Pig and Daffy Duck cell drawings over his bed, and the Taz the Tazmanian Devil pillow on his couch.
Trivia: The water tank/pool used to film the underwater scenes at the beginning of the movie was borrowed from Baywatch (from the DVD's director comentaries).
