Consensus: Overly frantic, painfully unfunny, and sorely missing the presence of Jim Carrey.

Chicago Reader

Whatever possessed director Lawrence Guterman and writer Lance Khazei to transform the sequel to 1994's libidinous hit comedy into pabulum?

If you are the son of Frankenstein, Flubber, Dracula, Lassie, Ali Baba, Sinbad, Billy the Kid, Davy Crockett, Robin Hood, Tarzan or Satan, you have to accept that the movie about you is likely not as good or memorable as the one about your dad.

Common Sense Media

No doubt extensive market research shows that there's an audience out there for movies like Son Of The Mask, but it's too depressing to speculate who that might be.

Michael O'Sullivan

In the five years I've been co-hosting this show, this is the closest I've ever come to walking out halfway through the film, and now that I look back on the experience, I wish I had.

Susan Walker

With so many cuts a second, all attention goes into following the visuals. Just as well, since the story leaves so little to work with.

It's your usual low-budget, unbelievably bad sequel.

When seeing the trailer in front of "The Polar Express" back in 2004, I noticed that there was no Jim Carrey. That fact did not kill me. I already… More
