Idiotic sequel to Jim Carrey‘s first blockbuster hit suffers from less of the abstract jokes that made the first installment so funny, and more emphasis on toilet humour. Ventura, specializing in saving the animal kingdom from the hideousness of humanity, is on the case when a sacred animal is stolen from an African tribe and nearly starts a nationwide war. Okay, so maybe it’s a little funny when a giant hippo gives birth to a naked Carrey, but other than that it isn’t anything worth cherishing.
