When the Miami Dolphins have their prize dolphin mascot stolen, a reward sparks the interest of a freelance missing animals expert, known as Ace. What starts for them as a simple animal kidnapping will turn out to be the most difficult endeavor of their lives. It won't take Ace long before realizing that he is on his biggest case to date, but will he be triumphant or become the laughing stock of the anti-crime world forever? To be a Pet Detective, you have to understand both the criminals and animals. Jim Carrey stars in one of his first movie roles as the cunning animal expert known only as in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Now, who would want to steal a dolphin, and why? With a detective like Ventura they will have an especially hard time attaining their goal in preventing Dan Marino, played by himself, from playing in the big game with the dolphin to stir up the crowd, leading them to victory. The storyline is silly, the dialog is silly and the concept is silly, with one extraordinary exception: Jim Carrey, who, in contrast, uses his extremely intelligent wit and hugely humorous body actions to make this movie what it is, hilarious.
Jim Carrey is on the case to find the Miami Dolphins' missing mascot and quarterback Dan Marino. You can switch your brain off and literally laugh yourself to tears watching the scenes in which he acts in. Ace Ventura goes even further… He behaves like a criminal animal. Just exactly how does the ex-player fall into the disappearing dolphin crime? Given the high profile of the Dolphin's, the Miami Metro is tightly on the case as well, but find that they are not the only ones very quickly. He's Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Full of twists and turns, the captors keep on Ventura's case as well in order to prevent him from finding out the truth. Summoned from an ashram in Tibet, Ace finds himself on a perilous journey into the jungles of Africa to find Shikaka, the missing sacred animal of the friendly Wachati tribe.
Ventura's butting heads with their efforts every time they turn around. Who will find the dolphin first and restore it to its glory before the big game, if at all? He goes eyeball to eyeball with a man-eating shark, stakes out the Miami Dolphins and woos and wows the ladies. If Ace fails, the result will be a vicious tribal war. Not only will he be faced with the saving of the dolphin, but he will have his own life in question as well. Whether he's undercover, under fire or underwater, he always gets his man. What Ventura finds will only make the matter of returning the dolphin to its home only worse.
Teaming up with a news reporter, played by Courtney Cox, Ventura sets to find the culprit by any measure possible. Even a trip to the mental hospital is in the deck of cards for this detective, as he goes undercover to find any clues he can as to the location of a disgruntled ex-teammate. . Being one of his first major roles and to actually manage to single-handedly make this movie what it is with his sheer brilliance at being a comedian-actor, well, it should not be overlooked. He must accomplish this before the wedding of the Wachati's Princess to the prince of the warrior Wachootoos. . .
