This movie was directed and written by Steve Oedekerk. Tom Shadyac is not attached to this movie for some reason. But, Steve Oedekerk did a pretty good Job. The movie begins with a spoof from "Cliffhanger" where Ace fails to save a Raccoon. Ace retires from being a "Pet Detective" until Fulton Greenwall (Ian McNeice) offers him a large amount of money to find a missing sacred Bat. The plot of this movie is not as good as the original. But it's funnier! And a lot of fun. I remember watching this 10 years ago at the theater when it first came out. Frankly, I think there should be one more movie before Ace retires. Jim Carrey is a comedic genius. And he is pure talent. Not even Jerry Lewis can compare to the talent of Jim Carrey.
