Son of the Mask

Rated PG 2005

Oddly, this what-the-fuh? sequel (of sorts; not really) to the 1994 Jim Carrey hit is actually being released in theaters, when it has all the trappings of dust-gathering direct-to-video product: B-lister Jamie Kennedy, as would-be kiddie-show cartoonist Tim (no, not Tex) Avery, instead of Carrey; Alan Cumming (who will apparently do anything for half a buck) as Norse god Loki; Bob Hoskins (another downward-spiraling tramp) as one-eyed god Odin; Steven Wright, a former Oscar-winner for a 1988 short comedic film, who long ago gave up even trying; and lousy CG effects that turn a newborn into a possessed Baby Bob that pisses like a broken fire hydrant. The plot, thin as a supermodel, has Kennedy donning the mask and impregnating his wife (Two Guys and a Girl's Traylor Howard), who gives icky-cutesy baby possessed of wacky superpowers; the dog, too, gets involved by putting on the mask . . . oh, God, whatever. One presumes the only thing worse than making this disaster is actually watching it; wouldn't wish either on anyone.
