Ace Ventura: Pet DetectiveDirector: Tom Shadyac, Jim Carrey, Courteney Cox, Sean Young
When your dog, bird, or water-dwelling mammal disappears, who do you call? Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) is a low-rent private eye who specializes in recovering lost animals, so when Snowflake, the Miami Dolphins' aquatic mascot, is kidnapped, team representative Melissa Robinson (Courtney Cox) puts Ace on the case. However, Snowflake isn't the only Miami Dolphin who has gone missing; several key members of the team also disappear, including quarterback Dan Marino (who plays himself), who is spirited away while filming a TV commercial. With the Super Bowl only two weeks away, will Ace be able to find Snowflake and the missing athletes in time to salvage the big game? Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was a surprise box office smash and catapulted manic comedian Jim Carrey to stardom. The supporting cast includes Sean Young as ill-tempered Lois Einhorn, Udo Kier as the sinister Ronald Camp, and rapper Tone Loc as Ace's detective pal Emilio (Loc also wrote and performed a song for the closing credits).

I can't believe that Carrey hasn't gotten nominated for an oscar yet. He is believable as this Ace Ventura character and all the characters that he has done so far. A really funny movie!
i love it you'll laugh at it cause its so funny Jim Carry is crazy in this movie and very very funny he's a toatl goofball man i love it i laugh at the part when he pretends to have that accent for the dolphin Snowflake
Ace Ventura - Pet Detective is my favorite Jim Carrey movie! It is hilariously funny and very cute! A wonderful movie to watch when you are sick or just feeling a little down and need some laughs to cheer you up!
Really the last funny movie by Jim Carrey. This is hysterical from beginning to end and of course I love the animals. May Flipper rise again because of the ubiquitous Ace Ventura!
I THINK THAT THIS WAS AN AWESOME MOVIE!! IT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES!! LT. LOIS EINHORN (SEAN YOUNG) IS ONE OF HTE BEST CHARACTERS EVER CREATED!! SHE IS SOOOOO COOL. HER CHARACTER KICKED SOME SERIOUS BUTT!! WELL WATCH THIS MOVIE IT IS THE BOMB!!
Do me a favor...press your caps lock key. And by the way, this movie was the greatest. and the best character, by far..was spike.
This film is totally awesome. As soon as I saw it, I went out and bought a copy immediately. And I only ever buy the best films, I can assure you. Right from the very start Jim Carrey's character is completely hilarious. One of the funniest films I've seen, and one of Jim Carrey's best performances. This is a great film. Go and buy it. Now!
This movie rocked the house! This is one of Carrey's best films yet! His comedy is still as good as ever. I could watch this movie a million times!
I must have watched this movie thirty times in one month during college! A true classic script and especially performance by Jim Carrey, with nonstop manic nonsense and madness. Filled with tons of hilarious one liners and quotables from Carrey. I think it's Carrey's funniest performance, with Liar Liar second, and The Mask third. This was him making it to the big time as a comic actor and he holds nothing back.
