What happens in this episode? 

We watch something new from Netflix and return to top tier Jim Carrey in this episode of Film Roar.

First up, we logon to Netflix to watch high school coming of age comedy-drama The Half of It. Written and directed by Alice Wu, the film tells of a shy, introverted student helping a school jock woo a girl whom, secretly, they both want.

Then we dive into one of the pivotal movies in Jim Carrey’s rise to Hollywood stardom with The Mask. The mad and over the top comic book movie also marked the film debut of Cameron Diaz. Is it still classic Carrey or has the film’s zany sparkle faded after 25 years?
