5. 'The Mask'

For reasons that aren't quite clear, few comic books were turned into movies in the 1990s – especially compared to the 2000s. One exception was The Mask, a 1994 Jim Carrey movie based on a series of late 1980s Dark Horse comic books. Putting Carrey in the lead role before Ace Ventura hit theaters, the producers pretty much hit the jackpot: The movie ended up grossing $361 million on a $23 million budget. It also introduced the world to a young Cameron Diaz. A terrible, Carrey-free sequel hit theaters in 2005, but it seems unlikely that a true follow-up film will ever materialize.
