Encyclopedia > Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Ace Ventura, Pet Detective is a 1994 wacky comedy movie, directed by Tom Shadyac. It starred Jim Carrey, Courteney Cox and Dan Marino, among others.

The story follows the adventures of Ace Ventura, a detective who specializes in cases involving pet animals, in his search for "Snowflake", the missing mascot of the Miami Dolphins.

The film was largely responsible for launching Carrey's film career, following the exposure he received as part of the cast of the TV show In Living Color.

The death metal band Cannibal Corpse appeared for a brief cameo, at Carrey's request.

The movie had a successful sequel Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995) starring Jim Carrey and directed by Steve Oedekerk. In this, Ace Ventura investigates the disappearance of a rare white bat in Africa.
