Review by MTMoura

ACE VENTURA, WHEN NATURE CALLS is the second adventure of the world’s greatest pet detective and this time he travels overseas to mysterious Africa, with the urgent mission of retrieving a sacred bat, before two local tribes annihilate each other. The screenplay was written by STEVE OEDEKERK, who was also called in to helm it, when the originally assigned director got fired. This sequel is basically a nonstop succession of JIM CARREY’s solo powered gags and there are numerous extremely funny moments, like the spoof to STALLONE’s CLIFFHANGER and, principally, the anthological rhino sequence. So, you laugh hysterically throughout the movie. Actually, you sometimes laugh to a point were it isn’t physically possible to laugh anymore. Still, I feel like this movie lacks something the first Ace Ventura had. Can it be because it isn’t a novelty anymore? Or because the Florida’s ambiance is gone? Maybe. But I tend to believe the main problem is that there weren't any strong characters to Ace interact with. Even if Ace typically "...bowls everyone out of his way.", as Carrey once said, the rare scenes where he did slow down a little in ACE VENTURA, PET DETECTIVE, gave the character a charming and humane vulnerability, here unfortunately absent.
