Trivia

In the scrapbook of Ventura history, the last page shows articles cut from a newspaper, two of the articles read: 'DOLPHIN CASE CLOSED: Ventura Finds Snowflake' and 'VENTURA SOLVES THE GREAT FISH CAPER'. These are references to the first Ace Ventura movie where Ace finds the dolphin mascot; Snowflake. 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.

This is not Ace, it's a Looser!
7 March 2009 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

This is how good brand could turn into rubbish...

This movie is bad. The director used the well-known brand and adapted it to a kiddy audience. The main actor is trying to imitate Jim Carrey but it is just boring and flat (definetely untalented).

In addition, this film does not introduce anything new. Everything has been enriched by the typical patterns (family problems ble ble ble). It is highly ridiculous, almost at all. Unfortunately, I do not recommend it to anyone.If you saw the previous parts, then stay with them. Ace's son adventures are completely colorless, unfunny. This is one of the most unnecessary sequels ever.

I'll give it 1/10, because I watched earlier "Zack and Miri make a porno" which is awesome.
