Synopsis


Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
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). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    ace Ventura is one of the funnest movies that jim carry has ever made i saw this back in the 90's in theaters and laugh so hard from start to finish bc it is so funny and all around good comedy so if you want to see a funny comedy than watch ace Ventura and all i can say is the sequel is ok at best but no where near as good as the first one so check this one out and if you can find it on blu-ray for 10 bucks or under i would pick it up

    I Like the Theatrical Version Better

    'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective' is a hilarious film, and I highly recommend it. Unfortunately, this dvd has a couple things going against it. The first is that it's not widescreen, and secondly, it adds in footage that wasn't in the original theatrical release. The footage is ok, but it belongs on its own deleted scenes segment, not in the actual feature. If you're going to buy this dvd, save money and buy both Ace Ventura films in the more recent 2-disc boxset.

    Funny Original Idea

    The movie looks and sounds good on blu ray. The movie itself is for fans of the ridiculous. If you're too young to know Jim Carry's early work, think Will Ferrel if he were made of rubber and could contort his face into some strange shapes. Good comedy, personally I liked the second one "When Nature Calls" the best.

    Kind of Misleading but still a good Product

    The movie is good and the blu-ray is awesome but the cover says "additional footage not seen in theater" and it's not there. There was an additional scene where Ace pretends to be a dolphin trainer, I believe it's even on the back of the case, but it's nowhere to be found in the movie itself.

    Good Movie

    I have watched and enjoyed this movie numerous times. Although i find the movie funny, each time i watch it, it isn't as funny as the time before. I feel that it is overall a good purchase, but it is not a movie that can be watched over and over again like classics such as Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    I waited to get this on Blu Ray and not disappointed. While some scenes were cut, this is still a good presentation. I enjoyed the movie when it was released and still enjoy it today. If looking for extras, only a couple episodes of the cartoon series and trailer are available.

    Ace Ventura is a run away hit that officially launched Jim Carry's career into Hollywood. Anyone that has fallowed his career from In Living Color knows how great Carry can be on T.V. and in film. Do yourself a favor and pick up this classic comedy!

    This is a great movie. Jim Carrey has done it again in this comedy. He is a pet detective and gets called upon to help find the Miami Dolphins missing mascot. This movie has a great plot and will make you laugh for a long time. Great for anyone and an awesome movie.
