Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is a American comedy film starring Jim Carrey as Ace Ventura , an animal detective who is tasked with finding the abducted dolphin mascot of the Miami Dolphins football team. It received generally unfavorable reviews from critics. Carrey's performance led to the film having a cult following among male adolescents. Ace Ventura is an eccentric, very unorthodox Miami -based private detective who specializes in retrieving tame or captive animals. He struggles to pay his rent, and is often mocked by the Miami Police Department , led by Lieutenant Lois Einhorn, who finds Ventura insufferable. Two weeks before the Miami Dolphins are to play in the Super Bowl , their mascot , a bottlenose dolphin named Snowflake, is kidnapped. Searching Snowflake's tank for clues, Ventura finds a rare triangle-cut orange amber stone, which he recognizes as a part of a AFC Championship ring. Ace suspects billionaire Ronald Camp may have stolen Snowflake, as he is known for collecting exotic animals through less-than-reputable means and sources. Ventura and Melissa sneak into Camp's party, where Ventura mistakes a shark for Snowflake and is nearly eaten. Camp apologizes and shakes Ventura's hand, revealing on one of his own fingers an amber stone identical to the one Ventura found.

Ace Ventura is a fictional character created by Canadian screenwriter Jack Bernstein. Ace is a Miami-based private detective specializing in the retrieval of missing animals, the son of Rex Ventura and descendant of such as " Ernest Ventura Shackleton " and " Jacques Ventura Costeau ". It is not known whether the animated television series was contiguous with the feature-films; but if it was it may take place before them because the only one of his pets to appear in the series is his capuchin monkey , Spike. His eccentricities make him a laughing stock to the Miami-Dade Police Department in the early part of the first movie, but he eventually earned their respect after his rescue of Dan Marino and the dolphin, Snowflake. During the first film, Ace lives in an apartment alongside many different animals, all of whom hide from his landlord, Mr. Schickadance Mark Margolis in his absence, and to whom he owes money for rent.
