"Take care, now. Bye bye, then."

In 1994, a year that gave us Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption, Morgan Creek Productions and Warner Bros. Pictures came out with the funniest film of the decade, err, 1994, with the Jim Carrey super-vehicle, ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE.

Right off the bat, it is a Jim Carrey showcase: chasing missing albino pigeons, rescuing a pampered shiatsu, and making high speed getaways, this all works because it is Ace Ventura, a hilarious, live-action cartoon character who spouts one-liners like an M-16.

The premise of the film is that the Miami Dolphin's team mascot, Snowflake the dolphin, has been captured and needs to be found in time for the Super Bowl. Ace is hired and the sexy Courtney Cox is made his partner until the dolphin is recovered. With an assortment of funny situations like Ace falling into a great white shark tank (!), a montage of Ace searching for a missing jewel, Ace head banging in a CANNIBAL CORPSE concert, it's all gold, and as you have read, Ace is what drives this film into comedy genius!

It was a busy and successful year for Jim Carrey, as he came out with another pair of comedy blockbusters, the LOOSELY translated Dark Horse comic THE MASK, and his hilarious buddy comedy with Jeff Daniels, DUMB and DUMBER.

Thanks to Tom Shadyac for letting Carrey out of the bag and letting this damn funny Canadian strut his lanky stuff.

It has some offensive, adult-oriented material, but if caught on television, this is nearly perfect family entertainment: as long as you don't mind your kids talking from their a$$es for the next couple months.

heads up..

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

There is some content in there and bits of comic scenes but it doesn't quite mix up even though Jim puts his heart into it.

Carrey's performance makes up for the weak storyline

'Ace Venture: Pet Detective' would have been a total disaster without someone with the talent of Jim Carrey in the lead role. The concept behind this movie is weak and poorly executed, with way too few ideas. Carrey makes it watchable - his energy and enthusiasm alone is enough to keep the viewer watching in spite of the inadequate storyline.

I was surprised to learn that 'Ace Ventura' was released in the same year as Carrey's career best movie 'Dumb and Dumber' and there are certainly parallels between Lloyd and the pet detective. Carrey really is the best at playing silly, goofy characters. 'Ace Ventura' turned out okay but I dread to think what it would have been like with somebody else other than Carrey as the detective.
