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.

Trivia: The set of the garage where Ipkiss has his car repaired is the same building as the Ghostbusters' headquarters (from the "Director Commentaries" in the DVD).

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.

Trivia: After The Mask sings the Cuban Pete song, he runs down an alley and kisses an old lady. This was not in the script, and Jim Carrey completely surprised the extra, as she had no idea he was going to kiss her.

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).

Trivia: When Jim Carrey tries to get the keys from Milo, the dog not letting go of the keys was not planned. The dog just wouldn't let go so that scene was ad libbed.

Trivia: Jim Carrey spent four hours in the make-up chair to apply The Mask.

Trivia: Cameron Diaz had to audition for the role of Tina no less than twelve times. She finally got the role only seven days before production began.

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.

More quotes from The Mask

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.

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.
