    Very hit and miss, with more misses than hits. The very animated Jim Carrey can be very funny but too often his humor is just stupid. The good budget is a plus.

    This one definitely has its laughs but all around not as good as the first. The story in the first just makes for a better movie. "And you must be the monopoly guy!" Love it.

  1. Yet, there is also little doubt that when it comes to extreme physical humor, Carrey is remarkably gifted, a throwback to the vintage antics of Jerry Lewis or even the slapstick gang of silent comedy.

    There's nothing worse than a film which mistakenly believes it's the comic event of the year. For no legitimate reason whatsoever, When Nature Calls is full of itself to the point of being offensive.
  3. It's the worst Carrey movie yet, but it has a handful of inspired moments in which his signature wackiness is so funny it hurts.
