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 film should come with a health warning
16 January 2012 | by phantasmdaSee all my reviews

((((Violently tries to yank the rating button into a minus))) GRRR

OMG! How could they? How dare they? Is it a crime to want to viciously murder a youth?

This has to be THE SINGLE WORST movie ever made, how do you turn a classic thing like Ace Ventura into this monstrosity of a film? The kid ((Blood boils just thinking about him)) Who in their right minds thought the kid could act? He needs putting down, who thought this eye gougingly terrible script held even one bit of mirth? Who even thought that this film was a good idea to start with?

I need to go see a shrink as watching this film has completely destroyed my faith in humanity, it has taken my will to live. Please heed my warning, if you see this film in the bargain bins at your local video store, buy every copy you can, take them outside, stamp them into tiny pieces and then burn the crumbs, it really is THAT bad :0(
