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

At the beginning of the end credits, Ace can be heard saying Tone, put that big ass size 13 on and kick it for the homies." See more »
Many scenes added in the T.V. version add missing essential story elements, making the rest of the picture more understandable. These include:
A scene in a bar in Ray Finkle's hometown.
Ace gets up on stage with the band Cannibal Corpse during the concert and sings.
Ace attempts to extract information crucial to locating the bar from a distraught gas station attendant.
Ace calls Emilio from the mental hospital and an elderly resident imitates him. Ace takes Melissa home after they leave the mental hospital and she kisses him goodnight.
Ace visits his hippie friend again and tries find out a connection between Einhorn and Finkle looking at their credit report. Also, Ace phones Emilio from the Mental Hospital to tell him about Finkle and Einhorn.
Near the end, Ace commands Snowflake to steal Einhorn's gun. Ace then tries to command Snowflake to give the gun to him, but the dolphin gives it back to Einhorn instead.
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!!!
