    Well, 6-year-old me had no idea how transphobic/homophobic this was. 25-year-old me, however, is painfully aware of it. 2 stars for nostalgia, that's all it's worth.

    Jim Carrey is a comedic genius in this movie. This is one of the greatest comedies of all time in my book. I can't watch this movie and not laugh out loud every couple minutes. It's also nice to see a comedy movie that actually has a decently competent story.

    The first Jim Carrey comedy vehicle. His performance carries the movie.

    Best Carey movie of all time. Original and foolish. A must see if you need a laugh.

    When I first saw Ace Ventura: Pet Detective I thought it was one of the funniest films ever. The madcap antics of Jim Carrey really worked for me, although you can either love or hate him. Watching it nowadays, and I have watched it MANY times, I still find plenty to enjoy. Almost every scene has at least one great line, and most of them have a number of them. It's juvenile, sometimes offensive, surreal, and pretty great.

    Okay. So the first hour of this is hilarious. Just plain stupid and I was loving it.

    But then the transphobic stuff happens and I got a bit uneasy. Groups of men puking and pulling faces just because a man now identifies as a woman? No, sorry. That's just wrong. And not very funny either.

    I knew going into this movie I wasn't going to love it or find it especially funny. And, nope, I didn't. Jim Carrey, however, has a moderately likable quality where even when he's being over-the-top and playing an obnoxious character, he seems less obnoxious than just... stupid. And that's what this movie is: stupid. Better than obnoxious, I suppose, but NOT by a lot. The stupidity and immaturity are such an integral part of his character that the romance between…

    I know there are Carrey fans out there - somewhere.

    Pretty harmless until the intense transphobia of the last ten minutes.

    This comedy, that I once loved growing up, was just a reminder that my taste in comedies has changed. Pet Detective is just one big fart joke that you'll wish stayed in your mind as a "classic".
