Rusty Dennis (Cher) is the mother of Rocky (Eric Stoltz), a seriously deformed, but extremely intelligent and emotionally warm teenager. Rusty is a no-nonsense mother whose wild lifestyle is often at odds with her tenderness and protectiveness towards Rocky. She is determined that Rocky be given the same chances and happiness that everyone else takes for granted.Written by

Bruce Springsteen's music was chosen for several reasons. It was the real Rocky's favorite music, and it served to denote the passage of time. Springsteen wanted his music used in the original release, but the owners of his catalogue at that time could not agree on a royalty rate with the studio. The music was reinstated for the Director's Cut when Springsteen pushed for its inclusion. See more »
When Rocky is riding the horse, and pulls up along side of Diana, he says, "On your right." He should have said, "On your left." May be deliberate to show Rocky's lack of riding experience. See more »
You're really not gonna give us that life expectancy shit are you? I mean, for years, I have listened to you guys bullshit. First you said that he was retarded. And then you said he was gonna be blind and deaf. And then you said that he'd never be able to do anything that regular kids can do. You know, if I had dug his grave for everytime one of you geniuses told me he was gonna die, I'd be eating fucking chop suey in China by now.

The Director's Cut print runs around 7 minutes longer and includes a scene where Rocky & Rusty sing around a bonfire, and the funeral of cyclist Red (his motorbike is buried beside him). It also replaces the Bob Seger songs with those of Bruce Springsteen. See more »
Seriously, I did cry, but this wasn't an overly sappy film. I read in most of the comments that it was too sappy for some viewers. Yeah, you might cry, but rightfully. "Mask" is an excellent story. Rocky is a teenager who is very horribly disfigured. But he keeps his spirits up and just wants to fit in with the rest of the world. Cher plays his mother who is a biker chick. She loves him to death. And Rocky makes wonderful friends on the way through his life. It's a wonderful movie. I thought the story was very good and the actors were great. If you enjoyed movies like "Powder" or "Huntchback of Notre Dame", I think you would like this. I would highly recommend this film. Don't be afraid to cry.
