This week for Movie Monday I’m back with another classic comedy film. It’s Ace Ventura: Pet Detective!
Plot: The plot is ridiculously silly, but when you consider that the lead star is Jim Carrey that’s par for the course. It’s an okay family movie, but it will be a bit grating for the older members.
Casting: The cast of course includes Jim Carrey as Ace, but also has Dan Marino as himself and Courtney Cox as Melissa Robinson with Tone Loc as Officer Emilio and Sean Young as Einhorn. Despite the plot being pretty terrible the acting itself is fairly good, with Carrey being his normal outrageously expressive self. Fun fact: Alan Rickman (who played Severus Snape in the Harry Potter Films) was once pitched as Ace Ventura.
Cinematography: The film really didn’t have much special effects to speak of so it’s fairly lackluster in that area.
Music: The music fit the film and that’s really all that can be said of it.
Overall: A silly movie that most kids will enjoy, but older family members will cringe quite often.
For those who like: Jim Carrey, Pets, “Mysteries”, Ridiculous Plots.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
