It took Jim Carrey nearly 10 years to become a movie star, but the super-talented, one-of-a-kind comic finally hit it big with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
Tom Shadyac's football flick (yes, it actually is a sports movie) is a mystery masquerading as a ridiculous comedy that somehow finds a way to be clever while also being very dumb. It's also crude and tacky and sometimes very tasteless with all that mean-spirited transphobia, which should have been considered over the line even 27 years ago.
In any case, Ace Ventura is a movie that aims for laughs at any cost and you have to admire what Carrey will do to get them. So keep the laces out and please let go of old grudges, but DO go in there and download our surprisingly in-depth chat about the zany Pet Detective.
