Ace Ventura: Pet Detective | 1994 | PG-13 | - 4.4.4

Jim Carrey, star of the TV show "In Living Color" plays Ace Ventura, an odd detective who's trying to find a kidnapped bottle-nosed dolphin which is the team mascot of the Miami Dolphins. Also with Sean Young, Courteney Cox and Tone Loc. Directed by Tom Shadyac. [1:37]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - An implied scene of a woman performing oral sex on a man. A man and woman have sex while many animals watch. There is a lengthy shot of a man's bare backside, which exposes a glimpse of his private parts. There are also several cleavage shots.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man threatens another man with a club. A man falls off a moving car and another man falls off the roof of a high-rise. A man almost becomes fish food when he falls into a shark tank; shots of large shark teeth may be scary for young children. A man jumps off his penthouse balcony, and is killed. Several gun shots are fired at Ace, who catches a bullet in his teeth. A car flips and crashes. There is also a fist fight between a man and a woman: he slams her head against a pole, and there is some blood.

LANGUAGE 4 - The F-word is not spoken but gestured with the internationally recognized hand sign. There are also a couple dozen scatological terms, anatomical and sexual references.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
