This movie is the reason Jim Carrey does not do sequels. When he first hit the movie industry and became a success everyone was dying for an Ace Ventura sequel.

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, …
