When the warrior rips the spears out of Ace's legs, you can see the Wachootoo Chief and the Witch doctor in the back round, but in the next shot, they are behind Ace, ready to pick him up off the ground. See more »
Negative. No sign. Wait a second, I think I got him.
You know you could poke somebody's eyes out with that thing.

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.
