Product Description

Ace Ventura Jr: Pet Detective (DVD)

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!

Amazon.com

When you're 12 years old, it's hard to know who you are and what you want to be, but one thing's for certain: you can't fight what comes naturally. In Ace's (Josh Flitter) case, it's an affinity for animals and an overwhelming desire to reunite lost pets with their grieving owners. When neighborhood pets go missing and then Ace's mom (Ann Cusack) is arrested for allegedly stealing a rare Chinese panda, Ace promises his mom that he'll try to be a normal kid and stop sleuthing for lost animals. When Ace's eccentric, animal-loving Grandpa comes to take care of him, Ace discovers that his father was also a pet detective and heeds his Grandfather's advice to "be who you are meant to be." No way can Ace stay out of the pet detective game now--especially since the lackluster efforts of law enforcement mean it's up to him to get his mom acquitted. He teams up with his neighbor and adolescent crush Laura (Emma Lockhart) and the brainy A-Plus (Austin Rogers) and they set out to find out who stole the rare panda and their schoolmates' pets. While their methods are unprofessional and sometimes downright nonsensical, their investigations are effective. This children's remake of Jim Carrey's 1994 classic Ace Ventura: Pet Detective stays true to its inspiration with an abundance of slapstick comedy and a rather shallow plot and Josh Flitter does a good job with the comic role of Ace Ventura Jr. Children ages 5 to 12 will find Ace Ventura: Pet Detective entertaining and funny and their parents will appreciate the homage to the original, as well as the encouragement to be true to oneself. A multitude of brief special features include a gag reel, extended scenes, and six separate making-of segments highlighting the actors, animals, and trainers and their relationships with one another. --Tami Horiuchi

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.

I saw the trailer and thought. Wow. This is so cheesy with little bit of too corny corn bread dipped in that cheese. That sounds weird, but the actor has no idea what he is doing. When he says "Alrighty then!" It has a completely different tone. It didnt make me laugh like it did when Jim Carrey said. In fact, when the kid says it, it doesnt make me laugh. At All. If you want to watch a good movie with good humor, watch Ace Ventura, Pet Detective, the ORIGINAL. The 2nd one is cool too. In all, definetly do NOT waste your time and money on this horrible rip off of Jim Carrey. Sorry Hollywood, but without Carrey, Ace Ventura, does not make me laugh. Good luck making money off of some kid who doesnt know how to act. Jeez, if I could I would give this film a quarter of a star. :-(

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 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.

When my grandchildren will not finish a movie, it's BAD and they bailed in 15 minutes or less on this one.

This was an ok idea, but done all wrong. If they HAD to make an Ace Ventura movie without Jim Carrey they should have made a prequel! They could have used an actor who resembled Jim (Actually Trevor Moore from "Miss March" would be perfect, as he looked and dressed like Ace in that film!). Even this film should have found a kid that looked more like Jim/Ace! This kid would make a better kid version of Seth from "Superbad" than the son of Ace Ventura! While not as awful as some have said, this movie isn't worth more than a $1 Redbox rent & rip!

Forgot all about the sexual innuendoes in this movie. I guess it would be fine for a teenager, but I got it for a 10 years old. She loved it, but I had I keep my finger on the mute and fast forward button.

Ace Ventura Jr. (2009) is a semi-sequel to Ace Ventura Pet Detective(1994) and Ace Ventura When Nature Calls(1995). It's the "Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning" of the series. Jim Carrey and Ace Ventura are only in it "in spirit". The film went straight to DVD and straight to the Cartoon Network in the U.S.A. Although, Ace Ventura Jr. did get a theatrical release in the Phillipines! This film received many bad reviews, but I had fun watching it. It's a solid kids film and it was well made with only a $7 million budget. Josh Flitter plays Ace Ventura Jr. Ultra-pretty Emma Lockhart(Batman Begins) plays Laura, Ace's love interest from school. Lockhart gives an earnest performance in a cheesy movie. Austin Rodgers plays a McLovin' look-a like. Ace Ventura Jr. searches for missing animals in the area. The stakes are raised when Ace's mother is framed for stealing a panda. Ace Ventura Jr. tries to emulate his father as the film progesses. Josh Flitter does a decent job playing Ace Ventura's son.
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".
