When the Miami Dolphins' aquatic mascot goes missing just before the Superbowl, Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey), a goofy detective specializing in animals, is put on the case.


1994, what a year. Besides from bringing me to the world, and giving us masterpieces such as Pulp Fiction, Forrest Gump, and The Shawshank Redemption, it gave us some of Jim Carrey's finest comedies.

Alllllrighty then... Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is a silly, and entertaining comedy that had me laughing the whole way through. 

The plot isn't the best one out there, nor it's clever, yet it has a brilliant twist, and the pet detective concept is very interesting, and, most important, well portrayed. However, the story is quite compelling and worthy of a detective film.

Ace Ventura is one of the most odd and bizarre characters I've seen on screen, and I love him. His investigation does nothing but show us all this eccentricities and his extravagant investigative methods, and the way he proves others wrong making them look like idiots while he looked like an idiot in the whole process is just wonderful.

The acting isn't the best here, but you don't really need much when you have Jim Carrey: he brought such an enthusiasm to his hilarious character and to the film, he makes everything else disappear. If this film was just an excuse for him to be silly, I gotta be honest, well played! It's impossible not to laugh at his jokes, weird sense of humour and unnatural facial expressions. Comic genius hands down.

Ace Ventura: If I'm not back in five minutes... just wait longer.
