Goofs

A scene where A Plus flees down the stairs and cloaks into a crowd of students by the lockers in the school's corridor, bullies chase after him and trail behind a chubby school boy in a striped green and white polo shirt and denim shorts in the process. In the following scene, Ace Ventura Jr. rushes down the stairs aside the exact same chubby boy from the scene before as if he had not been ahead of the bullies searching for A Plus. See more »

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.

Worse than Grease 2
19 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, so I am a big Ace Ventura fan. Even so, I was unaware that this film even existed until a couple of weeks ago. I read most of the reviews here at IMDb and thought to myself "Surely this film can't be THAT bad?". I managed to see this "movie" a couple of days ago. I'd like to apologise to all the reviewers here for my obvious folly! This has just about ruined the Ace Ventura franchise for me forever. Until I saw this, I was convinced that Grease 2 was probably the worst sequel that ever had the audacity to call itself a movie, but I was wrong again.

This film doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. It lifts it up and digs right underneath it. To say this film was an abomination would be like saying Hitler's Final Solution was a small error of judgement.

If you're the type of person that likes nipple clamps, thumb-screws and being beaten by a leather clad sadist, then this film might be for you, but then again, maybe there is a pain threshold that's too much even for you? Stay away. You have been warned.
