★★★

Ace Ventura, Pet Detective, returns from a spiritual quest to investigate the disappearance of a rare white bat, the sacred animal of a tribe in Africa.

Legendary pet detective Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) returns for another adventure when he's coerced out of retirement while on a soul-searching retreat in the Himalayas. He must now retrieve an endangered white bat from a village located in Africa. The sacred animal was offered up as a wedding dowry from the Wachootoo prince to the Wachati princess, and, if Ace can't track down the culprit behind the kidnapping in time, civil war will break out between the two rival tribes.

Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is one of the first movies that I remember watching on TV on a Saturday night. I remember thinking that it was so hilarious to see an adult acting worse than a kid!

I remember his slinky spring challenge down all the steps, picking fleas of monkeys, and then that rhino scene. Yup. When he comes out of the rhino's butt. A gross, comedic farce that, even as an adult, you can't help laughing at. 

Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is a gross, comedic farce that, even as an adult, you can't help laughing at.
