PG-13 | | Comedy
A goofy detective specializing in animals goes in search of the missing mascot of the Miami Dolphins.
This movie still works as a straight detective case, even taking into account Ace Ventura's eccentricities.
Heads up! Good defense! Good defense!
At the end of the scene where Snowflake is kidnapped, the get-a-way van squeals/spins its tires with a sound as if the van was on concrete. There is only grass on the stadium field.
At the beginning of the end credits, Ace can be heard saying Tone, put that big ass size 13 on and kick it for the homies."
The original 1997 Warner Bros. DVD release, presented in 4:3 fullscreen format, in a snapper case with a cover proclaiming "Featuring Additional Footage Not Seen Theatrically!", is the Home Video Version. During Chapter 9, from 17:35-18:56, is a deleted scene that has been reinserted back into the film: After Ace inspects Snowflakes tank, he jumps out and talks to the press pretending to be dolphin trainer Hans, then finds the missing stone from Finkle's ring. All future DVD and Blu-ray releases are the original theatrical version, without this scene, even if they say "featuring additional footage not seen theatrically!" on the cover.
