Jim Carrey of TV’s “In Living Color” leaps head-first into his first cinematic lead as “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.” The eccentric Ventura takes on his biggest case when he’s hired to recover the Miami Dolphins’ kidnapped mascot.

This comedy, which showcases Carrey’s rubbery, exaggerated antics, will induce laughs for those with a high tolerance for wacky stupidity.
