Synopsis: Pet detective Ace Ventura comes out of retirement to investigate the disappearance of a rare white bat, the symbol of an African tribe.

Reaction: In general, I think I may prefer this one slightly over the original. They're both completely ridiculous, but Ace Ventura's histrionics don't feel quite so pronounced and annoying in this one.
