| oh my god, you gotta read what I found this movie to be...
I don't normally respond to these kinds of things, but after reading some of the negative responses I couldn't help myself. There is a movie out there for everyone, something everyone NEEDs to laugh at and who can relate to. This movie is the opidemy of my humor and the extreme way it portrays the upper crust world of stuffy, snobby, self absorbed unrealistic people who think the world revolves around their view and opinions is classic and makes me laugh in a way that is honest for me.

I read that some people were offended by it and want to get others to share their view. All I gotta say is, "If you didn't like the first one, why did you go to see the second one? Just to complain?" Do all of us "Friends" of Jim Carey a favor, if you don't like his humor, just go find some stuffy anal retentive "fluff" film, and write reviews on them that we will never read since those movies are for stuck-up self absorbed types. Sorry I just didn't think it fair that these people are "Flameing" this as if there are no other possibilities.

Thanx for reading.

Trivia

While talking in his sleep, Ace Ventura uses a feminine voice with a stereotypical "Southern" accent. He dreams about flirting with a heroic "Mr. Beauregard". This is a reference to Pierre Gustave Toutant-Beauregard (1818-1893), a prominent general of the Confederate States Army. Beauregard was from Louisiana and his family was of French Creole descent.


Quotes

Helicopter Pilot: Negative. No sign. Wait a second, I think I got him.
Ace: You know you could poke somebody's eyes out with that thing.


Goofs

When Ace is on the highway in Namibia he sees a billboard for Subway. Subway does not have locations in Namibia.


Alternate Versions

One minute and thirty five seconds were cut from the theatrical version to get a PG certificate in the UK. A further three seconds where also cut to get a PG for the video release. These cuts remove a lot of the "crude humour". The cuts are as follows:

  • The raccoon rescue is edited, mostly cutting shots of the clearly distressed animal.
  • The scene of Ace casting shadows on the projector slide has been edited so that his shadow is going after Gahjii's neck instead of his groin.
  • Ace's line "Excuse me. Your balls are showing! Bumble bee tuna!"
  • Ace's snorting in the hut has been reduced.
  • Likewise, when everyone is exiting the hut in hysterics, the shot cuts away earlier due to the graphic details.
  • The shot of Ace masturbating is missing.
  • When Ace is lecturing Quinn, the shot of Ace prodding his eyeball has been reduced. This could be due to strong language and/or imitable technique.
  • After removing an apple core from the tribesman, Ace pushing the baby out of the mother's tummy is missing, as well as the shot of the father catching the baby.
  • The Warrior stomping on Ace's crotch and ripping the spears out of his legs.
