Like father, like son. When a baby panda is stolen from the local zoo -- and his mother is the prime suspect -- only one man, or rather boy, can fill the oversized shoes of his father. But don't worry, Ace Ventura Jr: Pet Detective is on the case!]]>

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 morning 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.Read more ›
Ace Ventura Jr. is campy and over the top, but it does have some fun and charm. The humor is a hit and miss affair. This film uses parts of Universal Studios Florida for sets. You can see the Twister Ride and parts of a Jurassic Park set. This film references everything from 300 to Star Trek to A Few Good Men. A mouse in this film is played by a rat! Rats are much larger than mice. David Mickey Evans directed Ace Ventura Jr. He also directed The Sandlot(1993). The last decade has also given us Son of the Mask(2005) and Dumb and Dumberer(2003), sequels and prequels to Jim Carrey movies that did not feature Jim Carrey.
Ace Ventura Jr. could have been a lot worse. Ace Ventura Jr. is "so bad, it's good".
