What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is a 1994 movie in which Jim Carrey plays a strange and obnoxious detective who specializes in cases involving animals. While much of the humor was not that great to begin with, decades later, this movie has not gotten better with age, especially the jokes at the expense of homosexuals and the mentally ill. There is frequent strong sexual innuendo, including a sex scene in which Ace and a woman make the bed shake and bounce as the animals watch. There is also a joke in which a character says that a former Miami Dolphins player who has a brief role in this movie "should die of gonorrhea." Expect frequent profanity, including variations of "s--t." Some toilet humor when Ace emerges from the men's room of a socialite's party drenched in water. A man jumps off his penthouse balcony and is killed. People fall off cars and balconies and into shark-infested fish tanks.
