This is the wacky comedy that made Jim Carrey a Star.
He carries this movie! The man is spun gold on camera and he sells every outlandish minute of this Gonzo Looney Tunes Goofball flick.
When the Miami Dolphins team mascot, Snowflake the dolphin has been kidnapped, Ace is hired. With a production budget of $15 million, the film was shot entirely in the Miami area.
For Carreys’s first leading role he was paid $450,000. To reprise his role in the sequel Ace Ventura- When Nature Calls, he received $15 million.
His Trilogy of films released in 1994 included Ace Ventura – Pet Detective released in February which had a worldwide gross of $107 million. The Mask released in July grossed $352 million and finally Dumb and Dumber released in December, had worldwide gross of $247 million.
Having that banner year at the box office he was the first actor to receive $20 million (for The Cable Guy) to star in a motion picture.
