Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, is a humorous movie released in 1995 starring Jim Carrey. I am not sure why a few ppl. don’t like this movie (online reviews), but I liked it. Have a look at the above embedded trailer – you will get a taste of how funny the movie is!
Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) is a pet detective specializing in recovering lost animals. He also loves animals so much that he climbs Mt. Everest (or some similar snowy hill) to save one animal, but ends up losing two!!
He is commissioned by a Western Consulate in Africa to help find a white bat that is sacred to two native tribes. If he doesn’t find the bat, the two tribes will fight and there will be a lot of blood. Thus he begins his great search, and in the end will have to take a much larger responsibility than what he initially anticipated! Is he ready for it? Can he achieve it?
Even though the hero overacts and there is not much of a logic in this movie, I found the movie hilarious almost throughout. The movie mocks many serious concepts (and people), so there is some food for thought too. The antagonist(s) are not frightful but since the hero is a comedian, it’s still fine!
I liked this movie. Do see it once, you’ll not be disappointed.
