Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) is summoned from a Buddhist Temple by the English Consul General (Simon Callow) of an African province to find the stolen sacred bat of the Wachati tribe. If the bat is not recovered in time for the imminent wedding of the Wachati chief's daughter and the chosen warrior of the neighbouring Wachootoo tribe, war will break out.
This inevitable sequel finds Jim Carrey reprising his role as the world's greatest pet detective. His latest case, the disappearance of a rare African white bat, draws him out of his spiritual retreat at a Tibetan monastery following the tragic outcome of his previous case. That traumatic experience, which makes for a hilarious opening-scene send-up of the Stallone thriller Cliffhanger, prompts Ace to venture to Africa, where he goes native with the tribe that hired him to find their symbolic bat. From that point anything goes, with Carrey pushing the boundaries of good taste (what, you were expecting good taste?) up to and including his now-infamous "birth" scene from the backside of a mechanical rhinoceros. Lighten up, and don't be ashamed if you find yourself laughing. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.comSee all Product Description

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.
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
The story is about the pet detective travelling to Africa and going on the hunt for a sacred white bat which can avert a war between two tribes but as soon as Ace arrives he himself comes close to causing a war with his near to insane behaviour setting everyone on edge.He goes there with explorer Fulton Greenwall(Brit actor Ian McNeice)who seems to always get Ventura out of scrapes.Vincent Cadby(brilliant Simon Callow)is the one who hires Ventura but may not be as he seems and as Ace learns the truth he gets his own back in spectacular style using all kinds of animals especially a elephant as well as a monster truck to help him.Can Ventura save the bat and help the tribes have peace or will his madcap ways lead to war with or without the bat.
The story to this as i said before can feel like a retread of the first film with the bat replacing the dolphin and just set somewhere else but if you look past this you get a very good follow up with Carrey's incredible energy and funny moments shining once more and is backed up by a top cast and some stunning locations and plenty of animals.Read more ›
