Movie Info

Legendary pet detective Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) returns for another adventure when he's coerced out of retirement while on a soul-searching retreat in the Himalayas. He must now retrieve an endangered white bat from a village located in Africa. The sacred animal was offered up as a wedding dowry from the Wachootoo prince to the Wachati princess, and, if Ace can't track down the culprit behind the kidnapping in time, civil war will break out between the two rival tribes.

Audience Reviews for Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

  • Jun 10, 2019
    Jim Carrey doubles-down on the physical comedy and while it doesn't downgrade nor upgrade from its previous entry, still makes for a solid sequel. Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls continues to build on the actor's resume with its crazy antics and even-more ballsy gags that can't be ignored, no matter how good or bad the film is. 3.6/5

    Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is much weirder and focuses more on its comedy than the mystery. Jim Carrey keeps up his hilarious character but sadly this film jjust does not live up to being a good comedy, mainly because he is the only funny person in this film and in a comedy I like to remember more than 1 funny actor. This is still a decent comedy, I laughed a lot and can see why its a cult film but overall it just seemed like they were trying to make it a idiotic as possible and they succeeded. So if you wish to laugh and love Jim Carrey (like I do) then see this film, but if you want a great comedy then you should steer clear of this film.

    Even funnier than the first film. In this one we see Carrey do a lot more of his trademark physical comedy. A lot of critics didn't like this movie, but it is rightfully considered one of the movies they got wrong. It's too bad that the straight to video 2nd sequel about his "son" who is a "Jr. Pet Detective" actually exists. What's worst of all though is that his son in the 3rd film mentions his dad got lost in the bermuda triangle in this film. Ace you'll be missed forever.

    jim carrey is back as the pet detective sluth with the hair. this has good physical and funny comedy that is more appropriate then the first and is funny, but can be too childish. B+
