Did anyone in the free world really have any doubt that Son of the Mask would totally suck eggs? I knew it from the time I heard it was going into production without Jim Carrey. That belief was totally solidified the first time I saw the trailer.
Well, the critics are chiming in now and it’s unanimous. No really. Every single review I’ve read of the film without exception all denounce it as trully BAD.
Here’s what some of the critics have to say about it:
“Where the first Mask was an enjoyable kick…, Son of the Mask is more like a swift, hard kick in the family jewels.”
Randy Shulman, METRO WEEKLY
“Loud, mean-spirited and generally obnoxious, Son of the Mask makes the boisterous 1994 original look downright demure and refined.”
Michael Rechtshaffen, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“How bad was it? Lets just say that anyone young enough to enjoy this movie will require a parent to suffer an agonizing ninety minutes for the love of his or her child.”
Stefan Halley, HERO REALM
Who even thought this up? It was a stupid idea to begin with. BIg prediction time… this film won’t cross the $40 million mark at the boxoffice (If I had any real balls I’d predicts less than $25 million).
