Ace Ventura Deluxe Double Feature (Pet Detective / When Nature Calls)


Allllll righty then. Let’s get to it. As Ace Ventura Pet Detective, Jim Carrey instantly soared to stardom while tearing decorum to pieces.

    Review by E. Byers for Ace Ventura Deluxe Double Feature (Pet Detective / When Nature Calls)
    The best part is, that these films are now the correct format (widescreen) and have a dolby DTS soundtrack. The unfortunate part is they are the director’s cut, which in this case is a few minutes shorter. Now while I didn’t notice the parts cut out, it would be nice to have a double pack that is in the original release format. The other option is to spend 50% more or so and buy them individually, and I don’t believe they have DTS/proper widescreen.

    Anyhow, they are great quality, they make you laugh, and it’s a good price. Honestly the cut out screens didn’t affect me (who takes Ace Ventura films for their cinematic quality anyways), I just wanted to laugh.

    Review by A. Wagner for Ace Ventura Deluxe Double Feature (Pet Detective / When Nature Calls)
    The product arrived on time and in good condition. My only complaint is that Ace Ventura Pet Detective did not have the dolphin trainer scene. 🙁 Otherwise a good product.

    Review by Gene Smith for Ace Ventura Deluxe Double Feature (Pet Detective / When Nature Calls)
    Finally we get a good transfer of the first film, in widescreen anamorphic presentation. A lot of fans have been waiting for this for a many years.

    Sadly and the reason I give this set only 3 stars is that the first film is the Theatrical version of the film and not the better Extended edition which was released to VHS several years ago. None of the extra scenes or material is present here and for a re-release set, this just seems poor.

    They should have given us the full run of the cartoon as well on the 3rd disc, since this is the ‘deluxe’ set. They should have gone all out with this set and didn’t, shame.

    We do get a commentary from the director on the first film, but the second movie has nothing added other than being anamorphic widescreen. Another downside…..

    Maybe Warner Brothers needs to try this again……

    Review by Cubist for Ace Ventura Deluxe Double Feature (Pet Detective / When Nature Calls)
    For the first time on DVD, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1.

    There is also an audio commentary by the film’s director Tom Shadyac. . Shadyac talks about how he ruthlessly edits his movies, always going for a fast pace and big laughs. He points out that originally the studio wanted someone like Chevy Chase or Rick Moranis but once Carrey came on board he drew upon his stand-up persona. Shadyac waxes on about the nature of comedy but with surprisingly little pretension. He also points out the bits that Carrey improvised in this fun, engaging track.

    Also included are the theatrical trailer and several vintage T.V. spots.

    When Nature Calls only has a theatrical trailer and vintage T.V. spots.

    Included in this box set are three episodes from the short lived cartoon series that aired on CBS from 1995 to 1997. “The Reindeer Hunter” sees Ace helping Santa find Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer who has been kidnapped. This episode opens with a surreal set piece involving a snowstorm inside Ace’s apartment. This episode wisely adheres to the first movie in terms of tone with a spot-on impersonation of Carrey as Ace. There is also quite a bit of recycling in terms of catch phrases as well (including one of the most famous, “Do NOT go in there!”). In “Natural Born Koalas,” Ace and his monkey sidekick investigate ill-tempered koalas that have gone from sedate and cuddly to downright feral. Finally, there is “Dragon Guy” which features Ace dreaming about him and his monkey rescuing a fire-breathing dragon which is as odd as it sounds.
