Notably, while Creator/JimCarrey enjoyed himself in the original, he allegedly disliked the sequel so much, that he vowed to never do a sequel again, a vow he kept for twenty years, until he made ''Film/DumbAndDumberTo'' in 2014.

** And of course, there's Ace finding out Einhorn is Finkle, with a scene reminiscent of ''Film/TheCryingGame''.

The entire gimmick of Ace Ventura is that he's a modern-day Franchise/SherlockHolmes... mixed with Franchise/{{Tarzan}} and Literature/DoctorDolittle. Using these "skills", Ace becomes a Pet Detective, finding and saving animals. In the first movie he appears as nothing more than a local nut helping people find their lost cats and whatnot, but being the only Pet Detective in the area (and possibly existence), he gets roped into a high-profile investigation. Possibly due to this, he's become pretty well known in the second movie, where he is hired to recover a sacred bat stolen from two African tribes before war erupts between them.

* PoliceAreUseless: The Miami police department don't get anywhere in finding Snowflake themselves, and miss an important clue in the investigaton of Roger Podactor's death. Though this may be justified, as [[spoiler: Einhorn was behind both events, and deliberately kept the department off-course.]]

* {{Transsexual}}: Done as part of a parody of ''Film/TheCryingGame'', with the villain actually being [[spoiler: Lt. Lois Einhorn, who this whole time was really the missing football player Ray Finkle, having gone through complete transition (but remaining non-op), adopted the identity of a missing hiker, and became a Lieutenant, seemingly all in the sake of the perfect disguise]].

The inclusion of the song was the filmmakers' way of venting their frustration over someone else using the [[UnsettlingGenderReveal "He's a she"]] twist before the got a chance to.[[/note]]

* {{Expy}}: Ace's egotism, as well as his CatchPhrase "Alrighy then!" came from one of Jim Carrey's characters on Series/InLivingColor, The Overly-Confident Gay Man.

* RewindGag: When doing the summation in ''When Nature Calls'', Ace rattles off his conclusion towards the accused. He then says "Let me run that back for you", reverses his actions, and speaks like he's rewinding.
