* {{Sequelitis}}: The second movie is often found inferior, particularly for relying on more ToiletHumor.

*** Which is pretty bad excuse anyway, particular now with the extremely controversial "Gay Panic" defence being used. It also doesn't explain why the police officers acted just as over the top hoffified as Ace did when they saw Einhorn's penis.

*** It could be argued however that their reaction was more based on the fact that they did not know about [[spoiler:Lois Einhorn being Finkle]].

* BrokenBase: Jim Carrey allegedly dislikes the sequel, while many fans consider it to be funnier than the original. Of course, funnier doesn't always mean better; it certainly cashed in on dirty humour. According to Jeff Daniels, Carrey had explained to him the reasons why he didn't like the sequel much. He disliked the whole "Ace is afraid of bats" angle, as he found it to be a cheap AssPull, and even fought with the director about changing the script so that Ace was merely ''allergic'' to bats. Carrey was also very nervous about the film's depiction of the native characters, and that people might take offense to them. He's even surprised the film hasn't been outright banned! He wouldn't make another sequel to one of his films until ''Film/DumbAndDumberTo'', which unfortunately was ''far'' less well-received.

* HarsherInHindsight: Ace's "comical" overreaction to Einhorn in light of the Gay Panic defence and several high profile murders of transwomen by their lovers when said lovers found out about their transition.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Although the movie gives plenty of reason to see it as simply a disguise or a sign of mental disturbance, some viewers see [[spoiler:Finkle/Einhorn]] as actually transgender, and consequently a far more sympathetic character.
* AwesomeMusic: The opening sequence in ''When Nature Calls'', where Ace rescues a raccoon stranded on a mountain. Appropriately, it's grand in scope and exciting.

*** Speaking of that, [[spoiler:former sports athlete Bruce Jenner would follow in former athlete Finkle's/Einhorn's footsteps 22 years later... as transwoman Caitlyn Jenner.]]



* SpecialEffectsFailure: The explosive used to flip Ace's jeep in the second film is very conspicuous when it goes off.

** It didn't even go over that well in ''those'' days. Tom Shadyack defended this joke after some anti-defimation groups got on his case about it, saying that it was less about making fun of transpeople and more about [[DeliberateValuesDissonance how easily Ace will break from simply kissing another man despite all of his]] CrazyAwesome [[DeliberateValuesDissonance endeavors]].

* 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.
