Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

It looks like Hollywood has invented a new formula for films. The Jim Carrey formula, which like most film formulas, gets incredibly boring time after time. In this sequel to the surprise smash hit, Ace (Jim Carrey) journeys to Africa, looking for a sacred bat the likes of which will keep two warring tribes from slaughtering each other. Like the first film, Carrey causes his own assortment of mayhem as he searches for the animal.

At first, Carrey's rubber-faced antics were funny and original. Now it seems everybody is trying to go for Carrey's Dumb and Dumber formula, unsuccessfully most of the time, and Carrey is just playing the same character over and over again. If that isn't boring, I don't know what is. The jokes in this one are mostly leftovers from the first film. Many of them are too mindlessly gross to even describe. From what I hear, Carrey is trying to do something different with his brand of comedy in his up-coming film The Cable Guy. But once again, from the promotional clips I've seen it looks like the same old, same old. I do intend to view The Cable Guy and perhaps I will change my opinion, but this strikes me as the type of stuff that nearly brought down Robin Williams!
