I’m not sure the world’s population was beating down any doors demanding a sequel to the 2020 original, and the filmmakers, it seems, fed on that general apathy. The result is a largely boring, often head-scratching exercise in what-am-I-watchingness. Sure, you can stick your kids in front of it and get a two-hour break to catch up on your correspondence, but beyond that, there’s no real reason for this thing to exist, especially taking into account that it may well be the last thing the now-retired Jim Carrey ever does.

1.5/5 stars
