Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

(out of 5)


The film that made  a superstar is a silly comedy but one filled with many laughs that would eventually become the hallmark of his crude humour. He plays a goofy, oddly-coiffed private detective who specializes in cases involving members of the animal kingdom. He is called onto the scene when the Miami Dolphins’ famous mascot is kidnapped and held for ransom, but hard ball authority  is determined to keep him off the case. The inconsequential nature of the plot, not to mention an offensively homophobic joke involving Young’s character, are drawbacks, but it’s still a hell of a lot funnier than its sequel.
