Ratings & Reviews

  • It's the worst Carrey movie yet, but it has a handful of inspired moments in which his signature wackiness is so funny it hurts. show more

  • This sequel to 1994's surprise blockbuster is shamelessly stupid, willfully juvenile and generally just plain gross -- which is, after all, the point. show more

  • Director Steve Oedekerk, who also wrote the script, simply provides a frame for the string of Carrey sight gags, which come fast and constantly. Some work, some fall flat, but the overall momentum is never allowed to flag seriously. show more
