Ace Ventura, emerging from self-imposed exile in a remote Himalayan hideaway, travels to Africa with explorer Fulton Greenwall to find a sacred bat which is told will avert a war between with Wachootoo and Wachati tribes. Of course, when Ace gets involved, all hell breaks loose...Written by

Ace exclaims "Wunderbar" while forming a plan to infiltrate the Wachootoo tribe's village. The term is German for "wonderful". It derives from the German term "wunder", which depending on context means 'miracle", "wonder", and "marvel". Wunder is cognate to the modern English term "wonder", the Middle English term "wunder", and the Old English term "wundor". See more »
When Ace is hit by two arrows, one of them hits ground before he falls back. However, in the next shot both arrows are straightened up again. 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.

Despite most views of this movie, I thought it was just as good as (and in some aspects better than) the original. Of course there was a lot of recycled humor, but there was also a lot of original humor too. I was a little bummed to find out that Courteney Cox wasn't returning in the second installment, but they did just fine without her. I doubt it will happen, but I would love to see an Ace Ventura 3 someday.
I thought the scene where Ace is trapped inside the animatronic rhino was the funniest scene in the movie, but the film is filled with other great scenes too. I also loved the fact that he is a lover of all animals, except Bats. I thought that was such a funny idea for the character. I mean, what does that say about bats if a lover of all animals can't even stand them and finds them revolting. Just thinking about it makes me laugh. I just love the irony I guess. Anyhow, there isn't much more I can say about this film other than if you liked "Pet Detective", you should see "When Nature Calls". "Bumble-Bee Tuna",
