Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey), emerging from self-imposed exile in a remote Himalayan hideaway, travels to Africa with explorer Fulton Greenwall (Ian McNeice) to find a sacred bat which is told will avert a war between with Wachootoo and Wachati tribes.


Guess who's back with a brand new case, and I don't mean case as in a new case of murder investigation. Jim's gotta a brand new bag of gags, what else could he possibly do to make laugh? Ok, I'll stop it with music references, and go straight to my thoughts about this film.

Alllllrighty then, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is an extremely silly comedy, that entertains thank to the brilliant Jim Carrey.

Let's face it, if Ace Ventura: Pet Detective's plot wasn't brilliant, this one's is even worst. However, it is not important at all to enjoy the film, because the comedy does all the work.

The bizarre Ace Ventura will have you laughing out loud the whole way through, from the monopoly guy scenes, to the mother rhino giving birth scene. It's kind of annoying the way he has suddenly turned into a pervert, much more of a pervert than he was before, but the twist at the end is quite good.

The acting also isn't a strong element in the film; however Jim Carrey will make everything and everybody else disappear. This is his show, another chance to be silly and to show off his talent and his unbelievable, and unlimited range of facial expressions - he deserves a standing ovation only for that.

If you love Jim Carrey, this film will fit you "Like a glove!" Take care now, bye bye then.
