Review - Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

The Miami Dolphins’ mascot dolphin is stolen. Dolphin employee Melissa Robinson hires pet detective Ventura to recover it. Ventura figures out that the culprit is a former Miami kicker who missed a field goal in the 1984 Super Bowl and has been blaming Dan Marino for the way he held the ball ever since. The kicker escaped from an insane asylum. When Marino also disappears, Ventura knows he’s on the right trail. Then he figures out that the kicker is posing as police lieutenant Lois Einhorn. He follows her to where Marino and the dolphin are being kept and, after fighting with Einhorn, proves that she the kidnapper. Ventura and Robinson become lovers.

Stupid, with Carrey’s usual flagrant over-acting. I gave it a 5, and that only because Courteney Cox is cute.
