Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

A missing dolphin, a gridiron legend, and butt-flap ventriloquism make up this detective comedy featuring Jim Carrey in a career-making role. Most comedic actors would crumble under the pressure of maintaining maximum silliness for a feature film, but Carrey jumped into a cannon and shot for the moon.

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective / Reviews

Variety

Variety

There's no consistency to the "Ace" character, and the whole movie shifts in tone from social satire to sophomoric pranks and traditional copshow plotting.

Only a child could love Mr. Carrey's character, but that may be the point. The movie has the metabolism, logic and attention span of a peevish 6-year-old.

Neither terrible, boring nor soporific, just not very funny.
