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.

Austin Chronicle

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

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
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.

Empire

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

San Francisco Examiner

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.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Peter Stack
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.

USA Today

By Susan Wloszczyna
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]

Entertainment Weekly

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

Christian Science Monitor

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

ReelViews

By James Berardinelli
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.
