Skip it unless you love Carrey's gross-out humor.

I found the movie a long, unfunny slog through an impenetrable plot.

The comic momentum sputters long before the running time has elapsed.

The most obnoxious case of masculine swagger since Andrew Dice Clay, with just a tad of Paul Lynde thrown in for spice, Jim Carrey defies you not to bolt for the exit.

Unlike famous bumbling sleuths such as Inspector Clouseau and Lt. Frank Drebin, there's no consistency to the "Ace" character, and the whole movie shifts in tone from social satire to sophomoric pranks and traditional copshow plotting.

Carrey has no funny lines and no funny gags; what he's left with is acting silly, striking poses, and making faces at the camera.

Only a child could love Mr. Carrey's character, but that may be the point. The movie has the metabolism, logic and attention span of a peevish 6-year-old.

One of those films that explain why some critics don't like Carrey.

Among the stupidest of stupid comedies. Jim Carrey is typically manic, but shows none of the acting nuances on display in films like The Majestic.

| Original Score: 1/5

Star Newspapers (Chicago, IL)

Jim Carrey is at his annoying worst here. His manic, over-the-top style doesn't mesh well with lockerroom humor.

There's bad and then there's this.

Without any of the refinements he has shown in some of his latter films, Jim Carrey, as Ace Ventura, keeps the humor in this one insufferably crude.
