    Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

    I just can't rate this.

    I actually really dig the physical comedy and absurdity of the Ace Ventura character and the stories he's in. I mean, some of the visuals have gone down in history.

    Movies like this tread a really delicate balance, because it can make a movie excruciating but if the stars are aligned just right, it morphs into something uncommonly lovable, and that's what happened with The Mighty Peking Man.
