Hello you donky, donker-heads!
Welcome to ‘Baddy’s Basement Boggy-Bog-Bog’ and I’m Tim Zappy!
If you’re wondering why I’m writing so stupidly in this blog post, it’s because I’m reviewing the ‘Ace Ventura’ movies! I had the second movie ‘Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls’ for Christmas 2019 by my best mate Stephen. I had the first movie ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective’ for my birthday years ago!!
Both movies star Jim Carrey! As many of you know, I have a tradition to review a Jim Carrey movie every year! I’ve done it with ‘Batman Forever’, ‘The Mask’, ‘The Cable Guy’ and recently ‘The Grinch’ for Christmas last year! And what better way to continue that tradition in 2020 with ‘Ace Ventura’! 🙂
(laughs) And my goody-dippy-whippy-slappy-bappy-bing-bong-dong gumdrops have we got two crazy Jim Carrey movies for you! I know ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ is coming out this year, but these ‘Ace Ventura’ movies must be reviewed to unleash the craziness out of me! No really, I must let my crazy out here!
Heck, Deadpool and Darth Vader are literally restraining my crazy self in the far corner of the room I’m in!
In the far corner of the room, Deadpool and Darth Vader struggle to keep down a crazy version of Tim Bradley laughing crazily and jumping up and down like a manic.
Deadpool: “This is what happens when you binge-watch a Jim Carrey marathon! You lose your marbles!”
Deadpool shoots Crazy Tim in the head. It doesn’t work. Crazy Tim keeps laughing away! Deadpool shoots again and again, but it still doesn’t work. Crazy Tim is still laughing crazily and jumping about crazily.
Deadpool: “Blimey! How many cokes and chocolate Tim had today!”
Crazy Tim then punches Deadpool repeatedly in the face. Deadpool collapses to floor.
Deadpool: “Ow!!! I’ve been Cardiff-klopped!”
Crazy Tim: “I can do whatever I like! So sucks to you, reddy-bloody-Deadbutt!”
Crazy Tim continues laughing and jumping up and down whilst Darth Vader is about to force-choke him.
Darth Vader: “Your craziness is no match for the true power of the dark side…”
Crazy Tim then force-chokes Darth Vader back! Crazy Tim rises Darth Vader up in the air!
Darth Vader: “NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Crazy Tim then throws Darth Vader around the room with the Force.
Crazy Tim: “And…up and down, up and down, left and right, left and right, around the room and back on the floor again!!!”
Crazy Tim smashes Darth Vader to the floor again! Crazy Tim laughs out loud and jumps like a maniac again. Deadpool and Darth Vader get up to try and restrain Crazy Tim again.
Deadpool: (to Darth Vader) “He’s lost the plot!”
Darth Vader: (to Deadpool) “A bit like the recent ‘Star Wars’ trilogy!”
And if you think that’s crazy with what’s going on with ‘crazy me’, Deadpool and Darth Vader, then that’s just about the tone you’re going to get with these ‘Ace Ventura’ movies. It has Jim Carrey acting crazy non-stop with no hint of seriousness. It’s just insane, insane, INSANE, JIM CARREYNESS!!
‘Ace Ventura’ in both movies is about a titular pet detective who investigates cases only involving animals. Ace has no interest in humans unless it suits him. The way he handles cases is so bizarrely stupid and outlandishly cartoony. Yet somehow, he manages to solve the cases extremely well here.
The first movie ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective’ has him solving the disappearance of a dolphin called Snowflake! Oh look, look! Christmas has come early with Snowflake! AHHH!!! Sorry I got crazy then for a minute. Anyway, he has to find the dolphin before some ‘super bowl’ occurs. It’s a…US thing!!!
I enjoyed the zany moments featured throughout the movie with Jim Carrey! I found it funny when Jim Carry as Ace Ventura got ravaged by a shark at one point. He comes out of the gents and goes “Do NOT’ go in there!!!” He’s dishevelled in his gear! I’m amazed he got lucky out of that shark fight! 😀
Ace…Oh hey, Sophie Aldred is in this!…Sorry, I had to get that one out! Anyway, Ace…no, Jim Carrey as Ace Ventura is joined by a cast of actors. How any of them took Jim Carrey’s zany-acting seriously, I’ve no idea. They must be champions! They must be awarded for working with Mr. zany Jim Carrey!
The first film’s cast includes Courteney Cox (Hey she was in ‘Friends’, wasn’t she?) as Melissa Robinson, Jim Carrey’s love interest (Gosh I found her sexy in this!); Tone Loc as Emilio, Ace’s police officer friend; Sean Young as Lt. Lois Einhorn – the surprise twist for Sean Young’s character is nuts! 😮 – and Dan Marino as himself.
The second movie ‘Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls’ sees our main hero going to lands far away from America and into the deepest jungles of Africa. There Jim Carrey has to solve the case of saving a sacred bat in order to stop a war between two African tribes. Once again, the zaniness ensues here!
Surprisingly, this movie features some well-distinguished UK actors working alongside Jim Carrey! I’m surprised people like Ian McNeice (I’ve met him in Worcester once), Simon Callow and Sophie Okonedo would be willing to work with Jim Carrey in a movie like this! They must be champions too!
Those three actors I mentioned would later go on to be in ‘Doctor Who’! Ian McNeice would later play Winston Churchill, Simon Callow later played Charles Dickens and Sophie Okonedo later played Liz 10. The craziness of Jim Carrey’s presence in these films doesn’t stop how good these actors are! There’s also Bob Gunton (who I’ve seen in ‘The Shawshank Redemption’) as Burton Quinn.
Jim Carrey as Ace Ventura gets himself involved with many antics to recover the sacred bat, including fighting the son of a tribe leader! That fight scene was insane! Jim Carrey even gets a new hairdo in the fight. He has his legs pierced with spears! Owwy! That’s got to hurt so much! ARGH!!!!!
Have I gone crazy? I don’t care! And the movies don’t care! And that’s why I think they’re perfectly entertaining! Jim Carrey doesn’t take himself seriously in both films! I had a great fun time watching them! People might find them annoying, but a critic found the first film ‘bladder bustlingly funny!’ 😀
I don’t think the second movie is as good as the first one. But still I had a fun time watching them. Whether you’re a fan of Jim Carrey or not, it’s up to you! But one thing’s for sure, he never stops to be entertaining! And if his entertainment value lives in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ this year, I’m up for it!!!
Thanks Stephen for ‘Ace Venture: When Nature Calls’ for Christmas last year.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, my craziness is about to explode! Really, it is!
In the far corner of the room, just as Deadpool and Darth Vader manage to restrain him, Crazy Tim lets out a loud, unearthly scream and explodes. Blood, guts and gore splatter all over Deadpool and Darth Vader!
Deadpool: (shouts angrily; at Tim) “I only just got my suit dry-cleaned!!!”
I don’t care! These are the ‘Ace Ventura’ movies and I like going blood-hungrily crazy!!! Besides, you love blood and gore, Deadpool! Have it all over you FACE!!!
Darth Vader: (to Deadpool) “Where’s a copy of ‘Winter For The Adept’ when you need it?”
Deadpool: (to Darth Vader) “Probably selling on eBay for $900 from a greedy seller who multi-purchased several copies!”
Darth Vader and Deadpool turn and look at Timelord007 nearby.
Timelord007: (confused) “Why are you pair starring at me disapprovingly for?”
Oh wait! Here I go again! (cries) Blow up, baby!!!
Crazy Tim reappears again! He screams out loud unearthly again and blows up more blood, guts and gore splattering all over Deadpool and Darth Vader’s bodies.
(happily; satisfied) There! I did the reviews! My craziness is out! Now I’m happy!
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
Deadpool and Darth Vader walk off, exit stage-right.
Deadpool: (to Darth Vader) “So about that new trilogy…”
Darth Vader: (to Deadpool) “Never discuss that trilogy to me! Or else I’ll force-choke…”
Deadpool: (to Darth Vader) “Okay! I apologise. Maybe you could help me out. Could your Sith powers locate a rebellious Jedi named Francis?”
