The Miami Dolphins were going to the Super Bowl again, but their dolphin mascot Snowflake has been kidnapped. Now it’s up to the world’s best and only pet detective, Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey), in “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.”
Jim Carrey is one wild and crazy guy, even more so than Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd combined. His humor is original and the moment you see it you know it’s him. To think, without Ace Ventura, he might not still be working.
That’s really all this movie is. “In Living Color” was his launch pad, and “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” was his ignition. The whole movie was obviously to get his humor out there and see if the public liked it on the big screen. Needless to say, it worked.
It’s not a perfect movie of course. Besides the fact that it’s completely historically inaccurate (which really doesn’t matter), it is a low budget film and it shows. The thing is, you really don’t care. It’s just a fun movie that is not to be taken seriously.
Final Score: 8/10
