The sequel to a Jim Carrey movie from 11 years ago minus Jim Carrey (didn't we already get "Dumb and Dumberer"?) CGI Dogs and Babies. When Ben Stein is the funniest part of your trailer, you're in trouble.... www.sonofthemask.com Promote this thread!

Y!: # 3 Posted on 11.11.04 1533.10 Reposted on: 11.11.11 1533.37 They probably could pay the entire cast what it would take to get Carrey, though, which, now that I think about it surely would've MADE them a boatload of money, too. I'd think Carrey's done with Stanley Ipkiss.

I've read numerous places that Jim Carrey flat out refuses to be in sequels. The only reason he did Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls was because he was contractually obligated.

That's a great way to make a sequel nobody wants to see.

All that money, and the best they could do for a female co-star is the girl from "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place?" I can't see this movie being good, nope, not at all. Of course, it does have the Ben Stein factor, so maybe there's some hope...

Seems like they are putting all their eggs in the CGI basket, but without Carrey playing the lead which just suited him so well I can't see this being any good.
