| Not nearly as good as the first one.
I just got done watching 'Ace Ventura' 1 as well as 2 in a row and I must sadly state: I have been disappointed.

Do not get me wrong; I like this movie, but not nearly as much as the first one. Though, gotta give it that: The movie is still pretty funny, which, however, is expected of a comedy movie.

Even though this movie is a tad longer than the first part, I just could not find myself puzzle over the (admittedly rather Indiana-Jones-like) case this time, whereas I had much fun doing that over the case in the first one. Simply put: No suspense whatsoever in this one.

As stated above, though, I did have to laugh quite a few times at the jokes presented in 'Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls', which is not the only good thing (of course). This movie does still have an interesting story, which I believe to be quite surreal compared to the first movie, though that adds some more ridiculous vibe to this comedic title.

Summarizing, there is only one thing left to say: If you solely watch this movie for the comedic purpose, you shall have a great time!

Did You Know?


In 2018, some broadcasters, such as Comedy Central (UK & Ireland), were showing an older 16x9 cropped version, instead of the full original aspect ratio version. This results in some retro "pan and scan" frame cropping issues.


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.


The two-piece band is out of synch with the soundtrack.

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.
