We gave it a C

A soundtrack for a movie like Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls should be goofy fun, but instead we get earnest bubble-grunge (Goo Goo Dolls), grim raunch (White Zombie), and a colorless Police remake by Sting and reggae act Pato Banton. Only a few songs — twisted rockabilly from the Rev. Horton Heat, white-boy funk courtesy of the Presidents of the United States of America, and some frisky world-beat from Angelique Kidjo — capture Ace’s gonzo appeal. All wrongy, then!
