To be a Pet Detective, you have to understand both the criminals and animals. Ace Ventura goes even further... He behaves like a criminal animal. When a football team's mascot (a dolphin) is stolen just before the Superbowl, Ace Ventura is put on the case. Now, who would want to steal a dolphin, and why? Written by

In a 2011 interview, Tom Shadyac admitted that when he first saw the film, he was worried that it might end his and Jim Carrey's careers. See more »
When Ace gets off the elevator, at the beginning of the movie, you see Ace kick the package to the door of the delivery. There is nothing but wall to the left of the door. However, when the man answers the door to the left of the door there is a tiny piece of a wall and a door right next to it. See more »
Undeniably juvenile, but funny and entertaining comedy stars Carreyin his breakthrough roleas a goofy, wildly eccentric pet detective hired to find the missing Miami Dolphins mascot. He's the right man for the job but his childish idiosyncrasies, uncanny bond with animals, and aberrant investigative techniques cause outsiders to question whether or not he can actually make good on his word. Aimed mostly at fans who really enjoy silly humor, others will quickly find it tiresome. There are some amusing cameos by real Dolphin football players (including an engaging Dan Marino) but this film belongs to Carrey and his constant outrageousness. Sure-fire entertainment for fans of this genre. **½
