Jim Carrey spent a lot of time off sick, which affected the contract of actor Simon Callow. Callow's contract had actually expired before he could finish filming his scenes. Despite this, he wasn't paid overtime as Carrey's illness was regarded as an "Act of God" in the contract. Which Carrey himself claims as "unfair". Since Callow already had other commitments in London, the producers suggest he flew back regularly in first-class, as the contract had stated. It wasn't until later that Callow found out that the producers were deducting the cost of his plane tickets from his overall salary. In his words he "finished up working almost for nothing".

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.
