We'll get B-grade actors who have half the charisma and want only 10% of Carrey's original salary. We'll save millions and rake in a massive profit, never mind the fact nobody wants to see a second rate sequel with none of the original actors that …

Pros: Bear the dog, Alan Cumming, sweet message about family     Cons: this movie NEVER should have been made, too much CGI, just plain stoopud     The Bottom Line: This movie never, ever, ever should have been made. EVER.     I am sick. I rarely get so sick that I curl up in bed and watch whatever is on television.
