Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Overnight sensation [[Performer~P11257~Jim Carrey~jimcarrey]] reprises his role as the eccentric detective in this follow-up to the runaway blockbuster [[Feature~V123049~Ace Ventura: Pet Detective~aceventura:petdetective]]. The sequel finds Ace on assignment in Africa to prevent a tribal war by saving a white bat sacred to both sides. Along the way, he nearly sleeps with a seductive African princess before her wedding, experiences astral projection with an enlightened monkey, masturbates, collects bat dung and, last but not least, is birthed by a mechanical rhino (much to the horror of an American tourist family). Often short on taste, the film is nonetheless full of good spirit and plenty of genuine belly laughs -- particularly during the fight scene with a diminutive tribal champion ([[Performer~P17225~Tommy Davidson~tommydavidson]], who demonstrates a gift for physical comedy equal to [[Performer~P11257~Carrey~jimcarrey]]'s). Not for every taste, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is either hilarious or insufferable, depending on the viewer's opinion of [[Performer~P11257~Carrey~jimcarrey]]'s unique brand of slapstick and sight gags. Please note: the opening sequence may be upsetting to younger viewers. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi
