ACE VENTURA JR: PET DETECTIVE
The Next Installment in the Smash-Hit Franchise
Debuts March 3 from Warner Home Video

Burbank, Calif, November 17, 2008 – Funny runs in the family with the release of Ace Ventura Jr: Pet Detective on March 3 from Morgan Creek Productions and Warner Home Video. Filled with family fun and goof-brained comedy panda-monium, Ace Ventura Jr. (Josh Flitter of Horton Hears A Who!, License to Wed, Nancy Drew) teams with adventurous girl-next-door Laura (Emma Lockhart of Batman Begins, TV’s “Malcolm in the Middle”) and nerdish gizmo-wiz A-Plus (Austin Rogers of Drillbit Taylor, How to Eat Fried Worms, TV’s “According to Jim”) to chase down leads and laughs. Ace Ventura Jr: Pet Detective will also be airing on the Cartoon Network early next year.

Ace Ventura Jr: Pet Detective includes 40 minutes of extras including behind-the-scenes with cast/crew/animals, extended scenes, gag reel and more. The DVD will sell for $24.98 SRP.

Synopsis
"I will try to be normal," 12-year-old Ace Ventura Jr. promises. That’s cool, except what’s normal for him is finding missing mutts, kidnapped kitties or gone ’gators and creating hilarious chaos every step of the way. Like father, like son, it’s in his nature to be a pet defective – detective! And when a zoo’s baby panda is stolen and Ace’s mom is Suspect #1, our young hero sets out to clear the family name.

Because, as we've learned from Son of the Mask and Dumb and Dumberer, non-Jim-Carrey-sequels to Jim Carrey films are guaranteed successes both creatively and commercially.
Films watched in 2005 / 2006 / 2007 / 2008 / 2009 / 2010 / 2011

You forgot Evan Almighty.

But at least this time they aren't trying to pass this off as a theatrical release.
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!
