When your dog, bird, or water-dwelling mammal disappears, who do you call? Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey
) is a low-rent private eye who specializes in recovering lost animals, so when Snowflake, the Miami Dolphins' aquatic mascot, is kidnapped, team representative Melissa Robinson (Courtney Cox
) puts Ace on the case. However, Snowflake isn't the only Miami Dolphin who has gone missing; several key members of the team also disappear, including quarterback Dan Marino
(who plays himself), who is spirited away while filming a TV commercial. With the Super Bowl only two weeks away, will Ace be able to find Snowflake and the missing athletes in time to salvage the big game? Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
was a surprise box office smash and catapulted manic comedian Jim Carrey to stardom. The supporting cast includes Sean Young
as ill-tempered Lois Einhorn, Udo Kier
as the sinister Ronald Camp, and rapper Tone Loc
as Ace's detective pal Emilio (Loc also wrote and performed a song for the closing credits).
