Weekend Rewind Rental: ACE VENTURA
Looking for a light comedy for the weekend? How about some classic Jim Carey in “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”. This movie makes me pee every single time I watch it. There are so many good one liners in there that you can use for years and years and never get old (to me anyways).
Ace Ventura was released in 1994 and is considered to be the film that launched his career. This film grossed $107 million dollars at the Box Office worldwide with a budget of $11 million. The success spawned the sequel “Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls” which was released in 1995. This movies budget jumped to $30 million and it grossed over $295 million worldwide.
Don’t know the story line? Here’s a crash course on “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”:
He’s the best there is. In fact, he’s the only one there is! He’s Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Ace is on the case to find the Miami Dolphins’ missing mascot and quarterback Dan Marino. He goes eyeball to eyeball with a man-eating shark, stakes out the Miami Dolphins and woos and wows the ladies. Whether he’s undercover, under fire or underwater, he always gets his man . . . or beast!
I give these two movies more than 5 stars for a goofy laugh to make your weekend a good one!
