An aspiring cartoonist is feeling inadequate about being a father when he finds out that his newborn son has some amazing abilities — those brought on by the Mask of Loki, a mythological object that transforms its user into a manic shape-shifting alter-ego. As bad as a baby with godlike powers might seem, the really bad news is that Loki wants his mask back. The comedy stars Jamie Kennedy, Alan Cumming, Traylor Howard and Ryan Falconer.
