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

Both Tone Loc (Emilio) and Troy Evans (Roger Podacter) appeared in different films with child actor Brian Bonsall the same year: Loc in Blank Check (1994) and Evans in Father and Scout (1994). See more »
At the end when the police run in to arrest Ace, Einhorn screams that he kidnapped Snowflake and was just about to kill Dan Marino and her. You would think that Dan Marino would have spoken up and disputed her at that point. See more »
I'm guessing that everybody knows the story of this movie by now, but for those who might not have had the opportunity to see this great movie, it's quite a simple formula. The Miami Dolphins mascot is stolen and by word-of-mouth advertising Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) is called into manic action. His job is to find the dolphin and return it before The Miami Dolphins' crucial game.
Jim Carrey is quite simply amazing, I never stopped laughing the whole way through the movie. This is surely Carrey's best work, even now. OK, Dumb and Dumber and The Mask are very funny movies too, but this takes the biscuit. Everything Ace does made me laugh, from whipping football player's with a towel to get a ring imprint to showing up at a mansion party and being his usual manic self.
100 laughs per hour, if you have a sense of humour, then this movie is for you!!!
