Ace Ventura 2 is at least as good or better than Ace Venture 1

    No thunder from me. I enjoyed AV1, and I enjoyed AV2. I was actually kind of surprised that there were no further AV movies (starring Jim Carrey). It wasn't exactly on the same level of excellence as, let's say, Ghostbusters, but much like Ghostbusters it had two solid movies that, mysteriously, stopped the series.

    Ace Ventura was kinda crappy, and I haven't seen the sequel, so I have no problem with someone asserting the sequel is of equal quality. Knock yourself out, sport.

    I wasn't aware this was a sensitive and/or hotly debated internet subject.

    I thought both were great! However, I have to say I like part 1 more. Again, I really enjoyed both, but the main think bothering me with the second one was his Ace lines. "Alrighty then", "reheheheheheealy". It just felt like he was trying too hard to duplicate his character from the first one, at times. Regardless, bumblebeetuna!

    Second movie made me pee in my pants. So I'd have to hand it to Ace 2.

    Wow... I was not expecting agreement from anyone. I had just read an article somewhere about movie sequels that were really horrible and was appalled to find AV2 in the top 10. Couple that with the fact that all of my co-workers seem to love the first movie but not the second and I thought I had the makings of a fun filled flame war.

    Until next time........ CHICAGA!

    ...and we shall never speak of that abomination :lol 

    I have to say, though, I enjoyed the second one a little bit more than the first, but that could be because I saw it first.
