Bede’s Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon #40: Son Of The Mask

Hey everyone! Welcome to the milestone 40th edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon series. As you already know last month here on I posted up poll with three bad movies and I said that whichever one out of those three films had the highest votes, I would watch and live-tweet for this column. Well, the votes are in and you all have spoken. It was an extremely close race but for this instalment of Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon, you guys wanted me to watch and live-tweet… SON OF THE MASK! Is this without a doubt the worst sequel to a Jim Carrey comedy that Jim Carrey himself didn’t star in? Who’s bright idea was to make the most terrifying live action cartton of all time? Read on and find out! Enjoy!


Bede @BedeJermyn

I know I’ve said this many times before but I’m going to say it again: is too late for me to NOT watch this film?

Seriously though to all my readers who voted for this film for the article, I hate you all right now. So. Very. Much.


From New Line Cinema, the studio that brought you THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy comes this absolute abomination!

Wait, this film had a director?

Oh, Alan Cumming. You’re a good actor but why did you star in a lot of crap in the ’00s?

Steven Wright?! Kal Penn?!! Bob Hoskins?!!! Somebody must have black mailed them big time to appear in this awful film.

Oh, dear God. This film was made in Australia. Hasn’t my home country already suffered enough by even being associate with this as well?


Ben Stein is the tour guide at this museum. I wondered if has told his tour group why he thinks that evolution is a lie yet?

Yeah, I think that southern red neck was played by an Australian ’cause he’s American accent is very cartoonish.

I’m sorry, Alan Cumming. The only person who should be Loki is Tom Hiddleston thank you very much.


You know what’s funny? Loki’s freak out in this scene is exactly like the one I had when I heard I had live tweet this film.

Umm… Loki just used magic to tear Ben Stein’s face off his head. That’s… really disturbing.

Wait, this film has a writer? I thought someone just took a crap on a piece of paper and they filmed it?

Oh, hi Jamie Kennedy! I bet you regretted staring in this film?

OMG this dream sequence Jamie is having is nightmarish! Seriously why do these babies have snake-like fangs?! It’s creepy!


Umm… How is Jamie’s character even have a wife? He’s acting like an annoying child.

Oh, Bob Hoskins. Why were you in this film? Did you really need the money that bad?

So Alan Cumming playing is Loki and Bob Hoskins playing is Odin. Just let sink in for a minute.

I’m surprised that Alan Cumming didn’t call Bob Hoskins ‘an old man and a fool’ in this scene.


You know what’s weird? Hoskin basically plays Odin the same way as Anthony Hopkins did in THOR.

Why does Jamie’s wife need a baby when he is basically acting like a giant baby anyway?

For some bizarre, Jamie is dressed up as giant turtle. I know it’s for his job but still…


The look on Steven Wright’s face tell me that he has absolutely no idea why he is in this film.

Note to self: draw a romantic cartoon flip-a-gram to win over ya woman.

Why do I get the feeling that as soon as Jamie puts on the Mask, he’s going to be more terrifying than hilarious.


The Mask just extended his leg out to at least 10 feet long but nobody seems to be freaked out by it… Okay.

How is that the Mask make-up in Jamie is more creepy on him than it did on Jim Carrey in the first film?

Everyone booing the singer at the Halloween party is pretty the exact same reaction the audience had when they saw this film.

I don’t get it. The Mask does all these crazy things that no human could possible do, but nobody seems to be phased by it.



Why did they turn “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” into a rap song? Seriously why?!!!

OMG! Jamie is leaving no music genre go unturned during this music number! He’s single-handedly destroying rap, country ect.

OMG! THIS MUSIC NUMBER IS STILL GOING!!! Somebody please put me out of my misery!

Wait, how can Jamie’s wife not notice that he is the Mask? I know the room is supposed to be dark but it’s pretty bloody bright


Wait, WHAT?! WHAT IS HAPPENING?! We’re inside the wife’s womb and there is some Mask sperm going for her egg! THIS IS WRONG!!!

I swear I have never been more disturbed by anything in my entire I saw this scene! This is horrible!!!



Hbehdbndndndjxnhxhxbxmejsnwmszbhwbsbx dineozkeand cnskdnsjxjjxijdjwoauh siejnsjxnend hdusjbdjd!!!!!

This is suppose to be a family film, right? RIGHT?!!!

“This guy could be a franchise character” Well, that thought went flying out the window once this was released.


Geez, Jamie’s wife got pregnant pretty quickly. They only just had sex the night before. The Mask must have some super sperm.

“Is that normal?” “No” Probably the most truthful thing g that anyone has said about anything in this film.

How on earth did no one beside Jamie notice the baby dancing and singing songs inside the wife’s womb during the sonogram?


Yeah, it’s pretty clear in this scene that Jamie has never seen a baby in his entire life until now.

Oh, geez. Even the Loki in the film even has problems with his brother Thor.

I don’t know about anyone is, but Alan Cumming’s hair in the film is pretty hilarious.

Ummm… Did the baby just blew his head exactly like a balloon? … Okay… *Blinks*

Oh, dear God! Why is Loki’s Bee disguised up as look so grotesque!


Holy crap! Jamie almost stabbed his baby with a broken lamp! I know he was tired and half awake but still! Geez!

Is it just me or does anyone whose name is Chad is always a jerk? 

Yeah… I think it’s official. Jamie is the worst dad ever.

Oh, man. The CGI they use to make the baby’s month speak is so bad.


Okay, why is Loki is dressed up like he is from the 1950s?

Yep, just what I wanted to see. A close up shot of the dog’s butt.

Ummm… Does Jamie know that he’s baby is still watching TV while he’s bed asleep upstairs? That’s bad parenting right there.

OMG! The CGI baby may be one of the most terrifying things I’ve ever seen!


I know film is basically meant to be a live-action cartoon but all of this just looks horrifying.

Oh, Magda Szubanski. Why are you in this film too? Come to think of it. Why is anyone in this film at all?

You know if this film were made into an animated film, it would definitely have been less scary that’s for sure.


You know what? I’m terrified on the Mask version of the dog. Why? ‘Cause he pretty much wants to MURDER the baby!

No! Noo!! Nooo!!! Just when I thought this could be more terrifying, Alan Cumming is dressed up a Girl Scout with braces!

Yeah, pretty much convinced now that SON OF THE MASK isn’t a family film at all. It’s a full-blown horror film!

Ah, no. These cartoon inspired slapstick scenes aren’t funny, they’re grotesque!


Oh, no. Jamie is changing the baby’s nappy. There can only be one way where this scene goes.

So… Much… Pee… Everywhere…

I don’t know how he baby can pee in 5 different directions at once but to be honest, I don’t want to know.


Please stop using that CGI baby, movie. It’s horrifying!

Ummm… Did Loki just murder that cop?


So if Loki is a god, wouldn’t have the power to easily find the Mask anyway without going into all this trouble? He’s so lazy.

Wait, Odin just took away Loki’s powers and banished him to be with humans? Holy crap! This is similar to the plot of THOR!

Wait so if Loki is mortal now, wouldn’t he have been easily killed when he got smashed together by those large dumpsters by the baby? Seriously how is he not dead! 

Oh, Jamie. Please don’t try to make your character sympathetic. It’s going to work.


So Loki has just snuck into the baby’s bedroom. Not creepy at all.

I know Bob Hoskins said SUPER MARIO BROS. was the worst film he’s ever been in but seriously, that one was worst than *this*?!

Well… Loki lost his powers for a very short time, didn’t he?

Enough with the Loki disguises, movie! They’re all awful!


Man, this film has some of the most horrifying visuals in the history of all cinema.

Ummm… Why does Loki have a stick of dynamite sticking out of his arse?! This movie, man. This movie.

Now Jamie is physically assaulting his wife… This is still meant to be a family film, right?

Ahhh… How did Jamie’s dog take off the Mask?

Just when you thought the film couldn’t get anymore worse than it already has, it does. It really does.


You know for a film that’s about the character the Mask, he’s barely in the bloody thing.

Okay, spoke too soon. Jamie is the Mask again. This is going to be painful.

I swear the Mask version of Jamie’s character has the same exact haircut as Conan O’Brien. It’s except it’s more plastic.

So the battle between the Mask and Loki is going to be decided by who the baby likes best? Oh, geez.

Geez, even the baby’s obvious voice over sounds unnatural coming out of the baby’s mouth.


Jamie is now giving parental advice to Odin. Man, can this film get any worse?

Yeah, I still pretty sure that Steven Wright still has no idea what’s going on. Or why he is even in this film.

Oh, man. That shot of the CGI baby smiling at the end was a creepy way to finish the film on.

So was Kal Penn in this film again? Did he actual do anything in it at all?

Well, that’s end of the film. I have to say that this is the worst adaptation of the THOR comics I have ever seen.

Also I now understand completely why Jim Carrey didn’t come to star in this sequel. This film is an absolute abomination!

I hope everyone enjoyed reading this 40th edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon! Keep a look out in late October for my special Halloween themed 41st edition, which could one of the following three bad horror films: HOWLING II: YOUR SISTER IS A WEREWOLF, MY SOUL TO TAKE or PSYCHO (1998). Which one will it be? Vote on the poll which will be posted on soon!
