Adapted from the Dark Horse Comics graphic novel. Stanley Ipkiss is a lowly bank teller who hates his job, his landlord and his loser status in life. This all changes when he finds a mysterious mask floating in the city river and puts it on on a whim. The strange piece of antiquity transforms him into a Tex Avery like dervish of manic energy with a green face who can shape shift, crack one liners and woo the hearts of all the ladies in one fell swoop. There's one in particular he's interested in, a lounge singer Tina Carlyle, who happens to be the squeeze of local thug Dorian Tyrell, who masterminded a robbery of the bank Stanley works at a robbery The Mask botched.
