Ace Ventura, Pet Detective

Year: 1994
Studio: Warner Bros
Director: Tom Shadyac
Writer: Tom Shadyac/Jim Carrey/Jack Bernstein
Cast: Jim Carrey, Courtney Cox, Sean Young, Tone Loc, Udo Kier

Unashamed vehicle for Saturday Night Live star Carrey from beginning to end, the proof being that without him, it would have been a thoroughly unremarkable movie.

Carrey is a detective who only works cases about animals. He's hired to find the dolphin mascot of an American football team. To say it unleashed Carrey onto the world is an understatement - every part of his body is like a contortionist on acid every second he's on the screen, and the movie has no real redeeming features (aside from a bunch of cheap laughs) except to showcase his comic 'talents'.
