** Ace's impersonation of Creator/WilliamShatner in ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "Nightmare at 20,000" feet might slip past some younger viewers.

* TearJerker: That first scene in the sequel when [[spoiler:a raccoon Ace was determined to save breaks loose and falls]]. It's supposed to be a parody of the opening of ''{{Film/Cliffhanger}}'' but for some people this doesn't help to make the scene funny at all.

Granted it is possible to see it as BlackComedy when Ace attempts to grab its paw as if its a human hand or him becoming so despondent afterwards that he becomes a monk in Tibet, but it may not be enough to make up for the sadness of seeing an innocent animal fall to its death.

Added DiffLines:

* AcceptableTargets: In ''When Nature Calls'', the rich, snooty couple at the Consulate party. They come off as so boorish that Ace punching the Monopoly Guy-lookalike and wearing him like fur doesn't seem horrifying. Though it was the lady who was the most hostile to Ace, the audience probably wouldn't laugh at the hero punching a woman. She may be an acceptable target for ridicule, but not for slapstick violence.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Homo[=/=]transphobic as it may be, Ace just ''[[ChewingTheScenery imploding]]'' over the discovery is [[spoiler:Einhorn is actually a man]] arguably saves the joke from being completely unfunny all these years later. If helps if you go by WordOfGod that it's meant to show the irony of how the simple act of [[spoiler:kissing a man]] can destroy someone as badass as Ace.

** Then again, if she ''is'' genuinely transgender, Einhorn is still using her transition to get away with murder. That could be interpreted as making a mockery of a serious issue, thus arguably making her ''even less'' sympathetic than if Finkle were merely cross-dressing and pretending to be a woman.

* MagnificentBastard: Vincent Cadby in the sequel. [[spoiler:He hires poachers to steal the sacred bat of the Wachati tribe after it had been offered as a dowry for a royal marriage to make peace with their rivals the Wachootoo. Thus, the two tribes take this as an ill omen and prepare for war. What does Vincent get out of this? With the Wachati dead the consulate will be able to take possession of their lands, which include lots of caves used as nesting grounds for bats, and their guano is worth billions in the international market as fertilizer. He also hires Ace to investigate the crime so he can avoid suspicion and spends most of the film letting Ace chase false leads and make a fool of himself because he doesn't need to do anything else for his plan to work, he just has to keep the bat hidden long enough.]] A rather effective and impressive villain for a comedy film.

* UnfortunateImplications: [[http://articles.latimes.com/1994-02-26/entertainment/ca-27313_1_jim-carrey-ace-ventura-mr-carrey Even in 1994]], the film was derided for its homophobic implications. [[http://freethoughtblogs.com/nataliereed/2012/05/18/ace-ventura-het-perspective/ This article]] analyzes the first film from a transfeminist perspective and it doesn't come off very well at all.
