Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
Overly frantic, painfully unfunny, and where is Jim Carrey when you need him?

Son of the Mask
Cartoonist Tim Avery (Jamie Kennedy) is a reluctant new dad. He has no idea what he's in for. Not only was his son conceived while Tim was in full Mask mode (meaning it's only a matter of time before the baby exhibits some very unusual behavior), but also the cursed item is being sought by the relentless Loki (Alan Cumming), the mischievous son of Norse god Odin (Bob Hoskins). Worse yet, the family dog gets its nose into the mask, turning Tim's household in a whirling dervish of computer-generated mayhem. Sadly, this "Son" never manages to recapture the style and manic but focused energy of the original, Jim Carrey 1994 hit and director Lawrence Guterman's direction and Lance Khazei's script instead flail around in a dozen directions at once, with grating results. Not quite blessed with the facial elasticity of his predecessor, Jamie Kennedy makes do with his best mugging until the special effects take over, and Alan Cumming, Bpb Hoskins and the rest of the cast essentially follow his lead. Those effects, supervised by James E. Price, are pretty spectacular, if a little disturbing. The centerpiece -- a fully digitized, photorealistic havoc-wreaking baby -- could conceivably induce terrifying nightmares for your kids, who might be the only ones amused by this irredeemable mess.
