    Peter Stack San Francisco Chronicle

    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. show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    But the best moments are in the trailer (the squirting skunk, the asparagus in the teeth), and they are funnier in short doses than lazily strung together. [10 Nov 1995 Pg. 01.D] show more

    TV Guide

    This sequel to 1994's surprise blockbuster is shamelessly stupid, willfully juvenile and generally just plain gross -- which is, after all, the point. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Director Steve Oedekerk, who also wrote the script, simply provides a frame for the string of Carrey sight gags, which come fast and constantly. Some work, some fall flat, but the overall momentum is never allowed to flag seriously. show more

    Carrey's style is to keep the jokes moving so quickly and with such force that you can hardly stop to consider how stupid they are. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    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. show more

    Carrey tries hard but the success of his excessiveness has always been down to pegging it to good plots and good partners. show more

    Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle

    Carrey is in top form here, giving a wildly confident, physically draining performance with all the stops pulled out. show more

    Entertainment Weekly

    As always, the verbal comedy is nonsensical and vulgar, and the physical humor is rigorously thought out and really vulgar. show more

    Peter Rainer Christian Science Monitor

    Youngsters may enjoy it. But the humor is generally of the genre heard in the boys' locker room at the high school gym. show more
