Ace is back! Ace Ventura, the antic animal sleuth with the gravity-defying hairstyle and the sanity-defying attitude, returns to the screen.
Relying on his wits and uncanny powers of detection, Ace is up to his usual tricks again only in Tibet. With the aid of some newfound animal and human friends, among them Ouda, the wise brother of the Princess, the ingenious Ace outmaneuvers a host of dangerous adversaries as he races against time to recover the sacred animal, with the fate of the Bonai Province.
This is another excellent film by Jim Carrey one not to be missed.
Well worth buying

Did you know that Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is the only sequel to a Jim Carrey movie that Jim has actually appeared in? Apparantly the man is not too fond of sequels. But on this occasion he made a smart move hanging around for the second Ace Ventura movie, because When Nature Calls is a top sequel.

Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) travels to Africa for his next assignment. Ace has been hired by posh gentleman, Vincent Cadby (Simon Callow) to find a bat that was stolen from a local African tribe's village. Assisted by Fulton Greenwall (Ian McNeice), Ace searches through the village for clues and questions all potential suspects, as he looks to solve the case before an inter-tribal wedding is due to take place.

The movie is mainly good in the jokes department. The first third is by far the best with the funniest jokes taking place then. The best of which is when Ace thrashes a Jeep through the jungle in a bid to get to the consulate quicker. The second third feels a bit slow, and although there are still many good jokes, they're not as good as the first third. But by the final third things begin to pick up again. The alligator wrestling and the final ten minutes of the movie are especially hilarious.

As you would expect Jim Carrey steals the show with his super cartoonish acting in both the physical and verbal departments. Everything he says and does in the movie he appears to have thought long and hard about how to present it; and believe me, he presents it in the funniest way possible. There are also solid performances by Ian McNeice, who plays the mild-mannered Greenwall, and Simon Callow, who plays the posh consulate owner, Cadby.

From the Cliffhanger parody, to the "Like a glove!" line, to the dart shooting, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is one great big laugh from start to finish. If you love slapstick comedy then this movie is a must-have.

I quite liked Pet Detective - however this is much much better!

Quite dated now but still hilarious!

Plenty of one liners from Jim Carrey, as he bounds back onto the screen as Ace Venturer in a family fun comedy suitable for all ages.

A good storyline - and in my opinion much better than the Pet Detective original, Ace finds himself pulled from his new home in the mountains and off to the jungle to stop a tibal war - with many hijinx on the way.

Definalty recommended as one of THE films you have to watch in the comedy bracket - and you'll most likely realise where lots of commonly used one liners originate from

If you liked the first one you'll love this one. Jim Carrey, arguably the funniest/zaniest actor of the decade delivers an hilarious performance as 'Ace' as he must strive to prevent War between two rival tribes by finding a lost Bat!! This is a laugh a minute with some classic Carrey moments...CHICACHA!!

I think Jim Carrey knew this film was poor, hence the over-rehearsed, MEGA over-acting to try and bump up the material. The first time I saw it, I found it relentless and exhausting. The first Jim Carrey movie I didn't really enjoy, and as a kid it was disappointing to say the least. I can sum up the difference between this and the first movie very easily:

In the first movie Ace "rewinds himself" because he is pretending to have a disorder to gain access to a mental institution. It was very funny at the time. In When Nature Calls he rewinds himself again for no reason, it's pointless. It's more like a cartoony spoof of the Ace Ventura character, rather than a legitimate sequel. The truth is if this had been the first movie, Jim Carrey might not have been the hit he was.

Love the movie's poster though, and the soundtrack ain't bad. The movie is also filled with quotable lines for school kids. And the rhino scene is still funny even if it's completely ludicrous.

This is quite possibly one of the funniest films I have ever seen. Jim Carrey is back and greater then ever as the cool Pet Detective Ace Ventura, only this time it's brought him to Africa. Everyone I know is obsessed with this film, stating it as being one of the best films they've ever seen by Jim Carrey. He's completely fantastic as Ace Ventura, it's almost hard to believe he's made anything else, because he's so versatile in the role of Ace, it's at times like this that you have to remind yourself that he was Stanley in The Mask and Bruce from Bruce Almighty. Such a fine actor.

This is by far a must have for any die hard Jim Carrey fan! It's by far if not his best one of his best films and it's completely hilarious! I find myself even to this day, making quotes from it, my best friend who is equally as obsessed finds herself repeating lines over and over for the pure fun of it. Trust me you are gonna love this film! It's a ultimate classic!
