The weird thing about this film, they seemed to have everything in place to make it a good film. But someone went out of their way to make the film as terrible as could possibly be done. So many odd and terrible decisions through the entire thing.

I HAVE A WEIRD RELATIONSHIP WITH THIS FILM:

Back when my family moved into our new house in 2006 we had no cable for the whole summer. We didn't even have basic channels. We did, however, have a DVD player and a few of bootleg DVDs. Like the "you can see the silhouettes of families at the beginning of the movie" bootleg DVDs. We had Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (not 1), Are We There Yet, Saw 2 (I was only 10 so I didn't care), Diary of a Mad Black Woman (¯\_(ツ)_/¯), and Son of the goddamn Mask.

This was the movie me and my siblings watched the most. Because it was "funny" with boatloads of dumb CGI. I remember being super confused when the baby had Mask powers 'cause I didn't know how babby was formed at the time. Also in hindsight that mask baby was terrifying as fuck.

The hilarious part was me finding out a few years later that the movie was a loose sequel to The Mask. I didn't even know that movie existed until I was in middle school and my teacher suggested we watch it during lunch lol

Anyways that's my personal relationship with Son of the Mask. I have unironic nostalgia for this movie lmao

So you didn't just shop in the bargain bin, you lived in it? That's pretty wild. I salute you.

That was an affront to God and the known universe.

Have this as a palette cleanser

I'd like to make a retraction in my last post i found out how the baby has Mask powers. apparently Jamie Kennedy Fucks (his wife) with the Mask on. and the Son of the Mask is created. off-camera obviously cause this is a kids movie


But even still there's an entire real deleted scene where we actually see cartoony Mask sperm go into the egg and forms the baby. What the fuck

I couldn't not watch this and I'm so mad now

why are only 3 of the sperms Mask sperms

why do they look and sound like Slimer from The Real Ghostbusters; are they voiced by Frank Welker

I hate this

We Hate Movies had a great episode on this. At one point they realize one of them watched a different cut of the film that includes a scene of CGI sperm, and have to pause the film to review the footage.

Then later they got an email from a listener who said they were a counselor at a Christian summer camp. Someone went to Walmart and got this out of the $5 bin. The person writing skipped the screening but was later asked to attend because the film got a bit too sexy and they wanted to make sure nothing went on.

For anyone interested: Son of the Mask Episode

The bit that amazes me the most about that clip is how utterly lifeless Kennedy's performance is. The contrast of the wacky high-energy VFX and Kennedy trying to stay awake as he murmurs his lines is bizarre.

Why is this allowed to exist.

It's funny that they had to enhance his chin using prosphetics where as Jim Carey could do it naturally.

I'm glad the movie is a dumpster fire. At least it's bad enough to be interesting.

It would have been worse if it was merely mediocre and boring.

Son of the mask, Catwoma, master of disguise...the early to mid 00s were epic

I've never seen this movie due to its reputation but honestly, that clip was pretty good. Movie critics can go suck an egg.

That's what is most egregious to me about the clip. There is so little life in this scene that CG/Cuts/Speedups can't compensate for. It's the weirdest kind of ugly.

I have not seen the movie, and I imagine it’s a piece of shit, but.....that scene was actually good?? It’s a memorable sequence, campy as fuck in all the right ways, with a vivacious spirit. Marvel could learn a thing or two from that scene.

its so fucking horny and deeply inappropriate for a kid as young as I was to watch.. I think it influenced me more than I'd like to admit.

Does anyone know why Jamie Kennedy was a "thing"? .

I remember he had a show called the Jamie Kennedy experiment, and I watch it but don't recall having fond memories, except King Rat.

Holy shit the first Clip in the OP was terrible, glad I skipped on that turd.

Isn’t “Kino” a rapey “pick up artist term” for when you escalate physical touch when flirting?

I’m so confused.

Man. That was fucking weird.

It isn't even that it is bad. It's just how boring it is. Like, how many people worked to make this huge fun song and dance scene, for it to just turn out mind numbingly boring?


Jamie Kennedy was never able to do anything worth mention other than sleep with Jennifer Love Hewitt
This cannot possibly be true.

The blowjob “thank you” scene from Ace Venture is a part of my psyche, so you’re not alone.
That scene really confused me as a kid. I didn't understand the BJ in Ghostbusters at all, so I never thought anything of it. By Ace Ventura, I understood enough to know something was happening. But, I didn't know what.

I legit miss dumb movies like this. I love kind of creepy trashy comedy but it doesn't really seem to be a thing that much anymore.

Our family loved it, it was basically Candid Camera but funny. Of course we also watched Joe Millionare, Fear Factor, and The Mole. I finally got around to watching Malibu's Most Wanted this year and while it wasn't particularly good it made me nostalgic for Jamie Kennedy. The man is right up there with Carrot Top in my book.

Just to throw in some competition
Now...see.. I have some legit nostalgia for this movie. I saw it as a child on TV like, super-late at night/early-AM. I'm talking 2 or 3 AM. I never caught the whole thing, either only the very beginning or the middle of it, but any time I saw it on (like, 3 or 4 times) I couldn't help but watch it.

I'm watching this half asleep and feel as if my brain is bleeding

Early 2000s bad movies were a truly special era
