Okay sequel. Carrey continues his schtick and gives us some more laughs, but the whole thing feels like a retread.

When this came out, yes it did well, and yes many people complained that the original was better. The biggest problem being that when you take a movie that did as well as Ace Ventura did, and then you try to duplicate the intensity and the magic of the original, you have to go even further... but when the original was already so far over the top, anything else is just going to be sad.
The funniest part of this movie was the scene leading up to and during the fight that Ace has with "The Tiny Warrior" played by Tommy Davidson (also an In Living Color alumni). Beyond that, the movie really lacked a lot of what the original had, …
