The sequel nobody's been waiting for. 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....
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.
I met him fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the must rudimentary sense of life or death, good and evil, right or wrong. I met this six year old child, with this bland, pale, emotionless face. And the blackest eyes... the Devil's eyes. I spent eight years try to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up, for I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... Evil.
I really liked the first one as well, I thought it had a good mix of comedy, special effects and a good comic book story... 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.

I dug it. Obviously it's not as good as the original.. but it's not the original. As its own movie, it's a pretty decent horror flick. I liked the backstory in this one better than the original anyways.
