Son of the Mask
Source: Catholic News Service
Daffy but disappointingly derivative special-effects-laden comedy directed by Lawrence Guterman about an aspiring cartoonist (Jamie Kennedy) whose life is thrown for a loop when he stumbles upon an ancient Norse mischief-making mask that transforms its wearer into a grimacing, green-skinned demigod, only to discover that by donning the mask he somehow passed on its powers to his newborn son. Emphasizing visual gimmickry over storytelling, the film tries to be a more family-friendly sequel-of-sorts to the 1994 Jim Carrey film with its positive pro-family message about the importance of parenting, but still contains unnecessary potty humor and innuendo that some parents may find off-putting. Recurring comic and cartoon violence, some crude bathroom and sexually suggestive humor, an instance of fleeting partial rear nudity, as well as minimal crass language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
