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

There are several spelling errors in the newspaper articles Ventura and Melissa view on microfilm, including "origionally", "Finkle'" with an apostrophe instead of a comma, "stiil", "itys" (its), "disasterous", and "Champioship". The articles also use the same filler material (usually when it's near the edge of the screen): a football-related paragraph once the relevant information is done, and occasionally completely unrelated copy that seems to have come from another article.

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 »
Original Theatrical Release during the scene when Ace inspects Snowflakes tank, he only sneaks out and finds the missing stone from Finkle's ring. In the home video version, he jumps out and prentends to be Hans, the Dolphin Trainer. The HBO version shows the Theatrical Version. See more »
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!!!
