"I know this is just a kids movie but that is not a reason for it to stink like this. And yes I actually saw this movie. I was curious to see this movie even though it reeks of a cheap cash-in on the name of Ace Ventura. I just wanted to see if it could stand on its own as a movie. It couldn't.
The movie details Ace Ventura Jr(supposedly the son of Ace Ventura)trying to free his mom from jail with accusation of a stolen panda. Stupidity and non-hilarity ensue.
So many things wrong with this movie but let me break it down this way.
Acting: Cheesy beyond belief. Its like the people in this movie live in an alternate world where Baby Geniuses 1 and 2 , Ed and Master Of Disguise are held in high regard so they use the same type of lame humor that those characters in those movies use and fall on their face just as hard. Joshua Flitter's character is only relegated to mimicking Jim Carrey's mannerisms from the original Ace Ventura movies. No originality there so lets move on.
Humor: When all you can rely on to be funny is pathetic pratfalls and slapstick that any kid has seen millions of times before you know you suck. Never has animals farting and Joshua Flitter bumbling around like some wannabe Leslie Nielson been so boring. I mean the jokes in this movie looks as if they were made up as the movie went along.
Storyline: Weak as hell. Is that the best the writer can come up with? I understand that this is a kids movie but Saturday night cartoons(past and present) have better plots than that.
Conclusion: Ace Ventura is a certified bust written by idiots that perceive their young audience as idiots with jokes that nobody(kids or adults) would find funny. Somebody should have told the writers of this brainless fiasco that NOBODY LIKES SUPERBABIES, BABY GENIUSES, ED AND MASTER OF DISGUISE!!! Those movies were universally panned(and for a great reason I might add) so using the same type of witless humor will get you nowhere fast. Don't subject your kids to this sludge. There are far better family movies out there that are created by geniuses not hacks that think all kids(as well as their parents) are stupid neanderthals that deserve to be taken advantage of. I still cant believe that the same director that gave us the wonderful The Sandlot is responsible for this garbage. Every dog has its day I guess."

"Wow, who thought in Hollywood this would be a good idea? The movie ignores Ace Ventura SR for most of this dreadful film, hinting at him briefly. Then out of the blue, it's revealed that he is lost in the Bremuda triangle. The kid playing JR is a bad actor and shouldn't get anther role in Hollywood. The whole movie is just a mess with bad acting, bad camera work, and just a slap in the face to fans of the orignal film. Stay away from this, I saw it for free just to witness the train wreck."
