    Funny start, but once Jim Carrey's amusingly eccentric character has been introduced and the detective plot takes over, I begin to lose interest bit by bit. Quite enjoyable to watch overall, though. I think I like it better than The Mask. And Courteney Cox is as lovable as usual.

    Some jokes were definitely funnier as a kid but nonetheless it still holds up.

    It's amazing how this film became so popular. It is SO cartoonish and SO silly, but somehow Jim Carey's performance really ties the whole thing together. I was ten years old when this came out in theaters and clearly I was its main demographic. Maybe I was watching it again through my nostalgia, but it holds up pretty well (for a low budget 90's comedy anyway) and it's a lot of fun to see Carey's superstardom in its infancy. Definitely worth revisiting if you were a young man in the 90's!

    Jim Carrey in his finest role. The movie is every form of the word fun.

    I've watched this once and I don't know why, actually, because I had already expected it to be bad, and I wasn't disappointed so to say. It was long ago, not too long after it was new, either two years later on Pay TV, or a little later than that on free TV. I suppose the latter, because I think the reason why I already expected it to be bad was that I had seen "The Mask" before this. Well,…

    I wish Frederick Wiseman had made a documentary about the Warner Bros. execs watching the first few days of rushes on this movie. Is there any modern equivalent to 1994 Jim Carrey that I should be watching and not understanding now that I'm old?

    This movie is fucking weird, man. Jim Carrey's impression of a mentally insane person is spot-on, Dan Marino is worked into the story as a supporting character, the humor doesn't make sense, there's a prolonged sex scene that's way too graphic to be in a supposedly 'kid-friendly' movie, one twist involves a transgender character that's subject to homophobic and sexist remarks, there's such an overload of animal reaction shots that it reaches a point where dogs are raising their eyebrows…

    I watched this just so that I could understand people who quote it.

    Hard to believe I hadn't seen this before, since I've had a crush on Courteney Cox since "Misfits of Science" and I find Jim Carrey eminently tolerable. But... it's not particularly good.

    Both Ace Ventura flicks are utterly ridiculous and juvenile - but I still happen to love them. I really didn't think they'd hold up as well these days, since I haven't seen them in many years (they were both personal favorites in my younger days) but I still found them to be wonderfully entertaining and extremely funny. Of course, most of (or, more likely, all) this is thanks to Jim Carrey's manic comedic personality as the title character. Pretty much…
