Imagine a cyclone, a Tex Avery cartoon come to life, a zoot-suited fashionista and the wiggy energy of a vat of jumping beans and that still doesn't capture Jim Carrey's comic genius as Stanley Ipkiss, a repressed clerk who goes from zero to hero when he dons "The Mask". The mysterious mask Stanley finds allows him to do what he normally can't - like woo Tina and beat baddies.
