Quotes

[first lines]
Ace Ventura Jr: I've got you now. That's it, my little misunderstood friend. Nibble the powdery cinnamon bliss. No, your path ends in death. You have been saved. No charge. This is certainly an ironic situation with an apex predator there and me over here holding this little guy at the bottom of the food chain and all. Hey, Mom. Look what I found.

Boring and uncreative.
29 June 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I don't normally write reviews for movies but after seeing this movie, I took the time to create an account and voice my disgust / deter other people from wasting their time watching this film.

Watching the first Ace Ventura films, it's easy to say they were at least decent films and hence entitled to the mid-ratings they received. Watching the third installment makes it easy to say it was worth of not only less then what it has (2/10) but the negatives if only it were possible.

The storyline is a watery carbon copy of the other two films (i.e missing animal needs to be found) with nothing new added to it besides a goofy child actor who's performance was abysmal and mindless, childish jokes. The writers seem to have directed the movie only at toddlers. It uses potty humor very heavily and no-one (not even toddlers) would find it appealing. A big mistake by the producers and executives who even approved this waste of money. It's a big disappointment to the Ace Ventura franchise.
