A scene where A Plus flees down the stairs and cloaks into a crowd of students by the lockers in the school's corridor, bullies chase after him and trail behind a chubby school boy in a striped green and white polo shirt and denim shorts in the process. In the following scene, Ace Ventura Jr. rushes down the stairs aside the exact same chubby boy from the scene before as if he had not been ahead of the bullies searching for A Plus. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ace Ventura Jr: I've got you now. That's it, my little misunderstood friend. Nibble the powdery cinnamon bliss. No, your path ends in death. You have been saved. No charge. This is certainly an ironic situation with an apex predator there and me over here holding this little guy at the bottom of the food chain and all. Hey, Mom. Look what I found.

I say these words as a HUGE 'Ace Ventura' fan...
15 October 2009 | by GMFinneyProductionsSee all my reviews

What the f*ck! Seriously, i am probably the biggest Ace Ventura fan and when i heard the news about a 3rd movie some years ago i was very excited. And from following the updates of this film from beginning to end, my expectations slowly started to decrease...and when the trailer hit the internet i was speechless... literally.

And that was just the beginning, the film came out on DVD and as curious as i am, i went and got it... and that was most likely the biggest mistake of my life.

From beginning to end, i felt like i was being tortured yet i couldn't look away... i couldn't believe my eyes... i couldn't believe what the f*ck they just did to Ace Ventura!
