Ace Ventura 3, motherfuckers

I’ve always found Ace Ventura to be funny, but the first two are definitely among the worst aging films of all time. 
 

Do a sequel to The Mask. 

 

They should do a sequel to Liar Liar where his son can't tell the truth, so he meets this hot progressive college chick and she asks what he does for a living and he says he's the QAnon Shaman.

I missed that entirely. Had no idea he was part of that film. Oh well. Maybe...just maybe he can pull something off in Ace 3.

 

I doubt it, though.

 

Oh, I seriously doubt he can as well. But he made a great Dr. Robotnik and he still had that manic energy - I was genuinely surprised and impressed.

I don't have a reason to bring this up even but fuck was he good in Eternal Sunshine. I'd enjoy seeing him try his hand at something more serious again although I'm sure that was a once-in-a-lifetime role and performance.

 

He's done a number of serious roles where he's excellent. My suggestions: Man on the Moon, The Majestic, and The Truman Show. But yes, he should do more serious roles I'm with ya.

Yeah I loved Man on the Moon as well. I haven't seen The Truman Show in ages but I think I remember liking it. Haven't seen The Majestic.

Ah nice - perhaps once you're done with Lynch you should do a Truman Show rewatch, it's great. The Majestic is directed by the guy who gave us The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Mist (Frank Darabont).

Not interested in another Ace Ventura, and I agree w/ the take that he's overdue for another more serious and emotional role

 

 

EDIT: Or is he?

 

 

 

 

 

It was sadly canceled, and partly because of Covid. I only saw a few episodes when we had a free preview of this pay channel. It was dark comedy in almost at times Addams Family kind of way. I would like to watch the 2 season they got out of it

I grew up with the Ace Ventura movies, so I've always liked them (even though I can recognize their more troubling aspects these days), and have always been a fan of Jim Carrey, but how often are comedy sequels even good especially after more than a decade since the last one? 

 

I'll hope for the best though since I would like him to have another legitimate big hit again, and remind everyone why he's so funny, and we loved him back in the '90s.

He was the only thing good is that movie. If the sequel was mainly him on Sonic's home planet, I'd be fine with that.

Jim Carrey is such a good actor. He's always been the highlight of pretty much any movie he's in, whether good or bad. I'm always down for more of him in anything, though I'd really prefer something I'd actually be willing to watch twice and not something I watch once out of morbid curiosity.

The funny thing is at the time Ventura was pretty progressive.  Big tree hugger animal rights activist etc.  

 

Jim Carey is far left... so I'm sure there will be changes to the character to bring him in line with todays ethics.


I don’t think a character who weeps in the shower and takes a plunger to his face after realizing he kissed “a man,” then reveals the genitals of a trans person to everyone’s over the top disgust was ever “progressive.”

 

Yes that aged poorly but it was really bad to begin with.

Yeah, I'm with you on this one.

Here's my take. I completely trust 2021 Jim Carrey to be able to turn the character around and make him not problematic and even possibly very progressive. There would have to be some strong retconning here.

 

 

At the same time, any sequel will just bring attention to the previous two entries and nothing good can come from there. Unless Carrey pulls a Chappelle and demands every outlet drop the previous films from streaming, a sequel here isn't a good idea.

What makes the character problematic? I don't think I've seen the movies since I was a kid.


It’s a lot of 1990s era takes on issues that feel pretty mean in 2021

I am sure the character COULD be rehabilitated but honestly... why? Just do something new. I agree w/the backend of your post.

The obvious answer is money. Someone thinks it'll make a lot of money and probably not cost a whole lot to make. Also, physical humor and people being stupid translates pretty well, so it'll be a comedy that might not be stuck in the English-speaking world. Dumb and Dumber To, for instance, made like half its money internationally.
