Filmmaker Spike Jonze expressed interest in directing the film but Jim Carrey did not know him well enough and ended up not choosing him. Carrey has since said it is one of his biggest regrets. See more »
Negative. No sign. Wait a second, I think I got him.
You know you could poke somebody's eyes out with that thing.

In 2016, the uncut version was released on Blu-Ray Disc in the UK, still retaining its 'PG' rating, however no record of a BBFC re-submission was documented. In 2019, the uncut version of the film was re-submitted to the BBFC by Arrow Films, where it was awarded a '12' certificate and subsequently released on DVD & Blu-Ray Disc. This marks the first time the film has officially been rated in its uncut form in the UK. See more »
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!
