Ace Ventura, for the most part, is a perfect vehicle for Jim Carrey. I was pleased with the film the first time I saw it. I have, however, seen it on network TV, and have found out that there are many more scenes present in the TV version not shown on the DVD. These scenes not only make the film better, but also more undestandable.
If at all possible, could we see a WIDESCREEN EXTENDED CUT, Mr. Shadyac???
Thank you very much.

I wasn’t a Jim Carey fan, I never watched “In Living Color,” and I had low expectations of the movie when I rented it one Saturday night. What a surprise! It is now my FAVORITE movie! It’s humor is down right silly, but not like “Airplane” or “Naked Gun” – it’s not as predictable as those movies and the plot is not as thin. Although Jim Carey “makes” the movie, it is not soley dependant on his silly faces and crazy, energetic acting. The story and witty dialogue make it a hit! Everytime I watch it, I catch a new joke I never noticed before.. If you liked the craziness of “Liar,Liar,” but want something a little more “mature” then “Dumb and Dumber,” YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!!
“Ace Ventura – Pet Detective” is a vehicle that is tailor-made for the comedy genuis of Jim Carrey. In his first major comedy, Carrey absolutely carries this picture on top of his broad and very funny shoulders! Carrey will tickle your funny bone in this riotous picture.
Carrey plays “Ace” a pet detective, who gets involved in solving the missing case of a dolphin from the Miami Dolphin’s training camp. Co-starring the gorgeous Courtney Cox and believe it or not, Dan Marino, the plot has so many funny moments that I cannot begin to list them all. The jokes fly at you about every second minute, so if you don’t like one, just wait for the next! I guarantee you will laugh out loud several times and give your tummy muscles a good workout in doing so.
Carry is a genius in facial expressions that will tie your funny bone in knots. His physical comedy ranks with that of Lucille Ball. Carry establishes his comedic “star” in this flick.
If you want to relax and take your mind off your worries and just laugh out loud, then this is the film for you! I highly recommend it! It is easily in my top-10 comedies of all time.
