Jim Carrey was paid $15 million to reprise the part of Ace Ventura, exactly half of the film's $30 million budget. It was actually the film's writer and Carrey's friend Steve Oedekerk who suggested he'd negotiate with Morgan Creek Productions for this. Conveniently, Oedekerk himself became the film's director, who then finalized this decision. See more »
One of Ace's reasons he hates bats is that they carry rabies. However, all mammals can carry rabies. 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.

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!
