ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE (1994) ***

Jim Carrey surprised a lot of people with this outrageous comedy that made him a star after years of being known as “that white guy from In Living Color”.   Carrey is completely unhinged as the wacky Ace who is trying to find the kidnapped Miami Dolphins mascot, Snowflake.  Though not all the gags fly, you won’t notice from laughing from the good ones.  Repeated viewings are required.  The comic highlights include Carrey talking out of his butt and a funny send-up of The Crying Game.  Critics hated it, but as Carrey got more and more famous, they slowly changed their tune.  Co-starring Sean Young, a pre-Friends Courtney Cox, and Tone Loc.  Followed by a sequel and a short lived Saturday Morning cartoon.
