Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was the start of star Jim Carrey's career. At the beginning of the 90's, he made some of the funniest comedies. Ace Ventura being one of them. Jim Carrey is very funny in his big break role, and he was able to make the best out of this role. Ace Ventura is a very funny film with one of the best performances that he has ever given. Ace Ventura was a great break through for Carrey, and he managed to create other memorable roles with Dumb and Dumber and The Mask, and his final great comedy, Me, Myself and Irene before going into a steady decline. Despite this, we at least have films like ce Ventura to remind us that Jim Carrey was once great at making us laugh out loud. Looking back after all the these years, Ace Ventura is still very funny 16 years after it's initial release. Also this film introduced me to Cannibal Corpse, one of the best death metal bands in the underground death metal scene. I saw the TV cut of the film, and theres a scene in thatv version where Jim Carrey gets on stage with Cannibal Corpse, which is absent on the dvd cut of the film. I think it's a great shame because that scene is extremely funny, and any metalhead might enjoy Jim Carrey rocking out with Cannibal Corpse, I know I did. Though not a flawless film, Ace Ventura will definitely give you a good laugh if you're in the mood. Ace Ventura still manages to make me laugh after all these years. Ace Ventura is a very hysterical film with delivery from Jim Carrey, however this is one of Jim Carrey's best comedic outputs at the beginning of the 90's. I just think it was a real shame that he's not able to be as funny as he was in this film.
