I thought it was great, and I went into it thinking it would be at best, just okay. It does have some fairly funny moments, but it's not meant to be a comedy in the same sense that most of his other movies would be. Again, if you liked The Truman Show, I think you'll like this as well, because those are my two favorite Jim Carrey movies.

I'll get it on my "movies to watch list" then.
I just find his comedy, you know, unfunny as hell.
I've seen plenty of clips from Ace Ventura and it's really ridiculously bad.

Undoubtedly. Even as a kid I didn't like it.

Really? That's considered to be his worst movie by some people. Anyway, I also didn't like "Treasure Planet". I know that didn't do THAT well, but most people seemed to like it a lot more than I did.

This isn't really a movie I hate, but it's one I dislike. It's "Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets" which I would give two and a half stars out of four. I just thought the book was a lot better. It's still the only Harry Potter movie that I would not give at least three stars to.

I actually really liked that one. It was the fifth movie, Order of the Phoenix that pissed me off. Harry gets really whiny and bitchy, and then that speech at the end "You'll never know love, or friendship, and I feel sorry for you!" that he says to Voldemort when he's being possessed is really cheesy and stupid.

The problem with this is that almost every Twilight movie has been completely panned by critics

What about Eternal fucking Sunshine of the Spotless fucking Mind!!?!

I was just about to bring this one up. In my opinion it's by far the best film featuring Jim Carrey.

The Truman Show is pretty good as well. I agree his comedies are often so-so.

Boring? You could say a lot about it, but boring is something that wouldn't come to mind with me.

Because they've apparently never played a video game before.

The shining was such a piece of trash when I watched and the fact that people over analyze it for it's apparent "symbolism" doesn't me like it anymore.

Kick-Ass.

This movie is NOT.THAT.GOOD, people!

It's a needlessly mean spirited, overlong movie.
