Jim Carrey Impression: The Movie

If most people were to see a chubby kid doing a passable Ace Ventura impression, they'd give a few pity chuckles and say, "That was pretty good, kid. I mean, from what I remember because that movie came out, what, like 12, 15 years ago? Run along now."

But apparently some people see a chubby kid doing a passable Ace Ventura impression and say, "So what if that character has almost completely been erased from the collective pop cultural consciousness? You're gonna be a star, kid! A straight-to-DVD star!"

And unfortunately those people have the resources (A "swoosh" sound effect, a vague story outline, a steady supply of child-size $10 wigs) to make their stupid vision a reality. Behold, Ace Ventura Jr, the movie no one thought would happen because it's 2008, and no one is walking around thinking about unwanted sequels to terrible comedies that came out fifteen years ago.

Those bloopers look almost as funny as the movie itself, which, let's face it, is just one giant blooper.

If making straight-to-DVD kid movies from circa 1994 pop cultural phenomena is what we're doing now, I have some suggestions:

The Rachel Haircut 4 Kidz

Son Of The Son Of The Mask

Tonya Harding Jr. Attacks Nancy Kerrigan Jr.: The Movie

Forrest Gump Jr. (Obviously)

Four Jr. Weddings & A Jr. Funeral

The Boys Of Boys II Men

Gameboy, Jr: Spawn Of Nintendo

Junior Trial Of The Century: The OJ Simpson Jr Story
