The great plains of Africa, the cradle of civilization. A place where there exists a balance between nature and man. So ancient, so sacred, no man would dare to disturb it. No man but Ace Ventura. See more »
Jim Carrey said that after doing this movie he realized he could not spend his entire life doing Ace Ventura movies. Writer/Director Steve Oedekerk felt the same way, and also moved onto other projects. See more »
After Ace removes the apple from the victim's mouth, there is a shot where the victim and the medicine doctor are in the background. In the previous scene, the medicine doctor took out the victim's heart, creating a hole. However, in the shot with the victim and medicine doctor in the background, there is no hole in the victim's abdomen. 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.

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.
Jim Carrey is one of those actors you will find yourself either adoring or hating. He does not ever "underact." This movie made me laugh so hard I cried (even after the fifth time!) From the robot rhino scene to the monopoly guy Jim knows how to be hilarious. I saw the first one (liked it a lot) and have to say this one is way better! I am a huge fan of Carrey. I don't think there are many people who can make such a variety of facial expressions. The only reason this is not a ten is because there is (as usual with Carrey) some inappropriate stuff thrown in. But if your love laughing and you love Jim, this movie will fit you "Like a glove!"
