5.0 out of 5 stars I adore this film 4 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This video is a must for all Jim Carrey fans-it is full of classic Carrey cliches (of which I have learnt them all) and it is absolutely hilarious. I think that these 2 films-When nature calls and Pet Detective-are the best films Jim Carrey has done and I could watch them over and over again and not get bored. Amazingly witty and at a great price too, buy it!

Ace Ventura is the movie that really kick-started the careers of Jim Carrey and, to a lesser extent, Courtney Cox although it is Carrey who makes this movie all his own by his wild and energetic performance as a half-insane Pet Detective. In case you're wondering that's a detective who tracks down missing animals. Ace is a great character, with his wacky clothes, groovy swagger, wild hair (LOVE that do) and unpredictable behavior. He's a page right out of Howlin' Mad Murdock's biography.

Courtney Cox plays a boss for the Miami Dolphins who hires Ace to find their missing cetacean mascot Snowflake. They can't play without having their mascot y' know. It's paper thin and despite lasting about 85 minutes, it is kinda stretched too far.

What could have been a half decent plot soon descends into lame-brain juvenile humor as Ace does his class clown bit, offends many people, and uncovers stupid and unfunny 'plot' twists. Tom Shadyac tries his best to make the film look colorful and vivid and, for the most part, succeeds but sometimes the production design looks a bit shoddy and I have no idea who allowed Sean Young to be in this movie. She's a terrible actress and makes every scene damn painful to watch. However, she is quite a MILF these days. Not in this movie though.

There are some funny scenes and easy to see why Carrey went on to become such a big star but compared to the rest of Carrey's career it's a bit of an insult to his talent. I prefer the sequel, even though Ace is a full blown lunatic in it and appears a tiny bit more normal and human in this one.

A fun movie to watch once in a long while. Not something to rely on for never-ending appeal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace Ventura - Jim Carrey's finest creation? 30 April 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The two Ace Ventura DVDs came in a budget package, which I decided to get when I realised my 12-year old had never seen Carrey in his earlier manifestation.

I reckoned, rightly, that the combination of physical humour, slapstick and mild smut would appeal and, in fact, we all sat through them in frequent fits of laughter, as did her schoolmates.

A little low-budget compared to 'The Mask' or 'The Truman Show', but worth owning - especially the first one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but... 14 Feb 2010
A Kid's Review
The Ace Ventura films are SO funny, and it's DEFINATLY worth having. But -WARNING- there is something you sould know. Ace Ventura 2 (when nature calls {which I think is funnier}) is played in the UK version and in that version they cut out some of the best jokes. To fully enjoy this you must get no.2 from the USA. But if you are a parent with young kids, get this one...

Very funny film, watched by a 10 year old and adults and was enjoyed by all. If you are looking for something fun and enjoy ridiculous, daft films then I think that you will enjoy this.

The dvd box set arrived within a couple of days, and I was notified by Amazon of it's delivery. It came sealed and both DVD's in perfect working order. The films themselves are hilarious, and a must watch for anyone who didn't grow up watching these! I bought them for my 13 year old sister, as she's seen the first and loves it. Highly recommended, amazing films, excellent seller and service.
