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

The ass-talking scene started in In Living Color (1990). Frustrated one day with Keenen Ivory Wayans' constant rejection of his pitched sketches, Jim Carrey stood up and read a sketch from his butt, in Wayans's direction. The two almost fought before Wayans walked out of the room. "Later, we sat down, talked, and everything was cool," Wayans said. See more »

The original 1997 Warner Bros. DVD release, presented in 4:3 fullscreen format, in a snapper case with a cover proclaiming "Featuring Additional Footage Not Seen Theatrically!", is the Home Video Version. During Chapter 9, from 17:35-18:56, is a deleted scene that has been reinserted back into the film: After Ace inspects Snowflakes tank, he jumps out and talks to the press pretending to be dolphin trainer Hans, then finds the missing stone from Finkle's ring. All future DVD and Blu-ray releases are the original theatrical version, without this scene, even if they say "featuring additional footage not seen theatrically!" on the cover. See more »
Undeniably juvenile, but funny and entertaining comedy stars Carrey—in his breakthrough role—as 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
