The Mask

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

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, 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: 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.

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.
