Ace Ventura: Wow. Ray Finkle's house. I can't wait to meet him.
Mr. Finkle: Ray ain't coming home.
Ace Ventura: But your wife said you expect him home any minute.
Mr. Finkle: She expects him home any minute. See the engine's running, but, uh, there's nobody behind the wheel. I mean, eight years ago, our son escaped from Shady Acres Mental in Tampa. And they're still bugging us to pick up his stuff.
Mrs. Finkle: It was all that Dan Marino's fault. Everybody knows that. If he had held the ball laces out like he was supposed to Ray never would have missed that kick. Dan Marino should die of gonorrhea and rot in hell.
When Aguato takes a swing at Ace, Ace throws him down on the bug. There is no way he would have been in a position to do that, the bug was right at his feet. See more...
Actual members (at the time) of the Miami Dolphins appear during the Isotoner commercial scene, including quarterback Scott Mitchell. The scene features the same gag used in the real life commercials where Marino's teammates (in uniform) pick him up and carry him away. See more...

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994) - 15 with pictures
Screenshots of mistakes that have been online for less than a year are only visible to members, but the rest are available to everyone. Don't forget to check out the picture of the day, updated daily, and the top 30 screenshots too.
Continuity: In the opening scene, someone is crawling through the shattered rear windshield of Ace's car while it is in motion. They show a shot from inside the car and the guy has about half of his body in the car. When they show an outside shot, his hands are barely inside the car. Then, in the next inside shot, half of his body is still in the car.
Continuity: When Ace is sneaking into Ronald Camp's Private Aquarium, he begins to look around and open some doors. If you look at the colour of the wall it is red. When he opens the door to the giant tank, the wall outside the door (which should be red) is now white. The door also reverses - the handle goes from Ace's left to Ace's right.
Revealing: When Ace's car flips over you can see the left wheel is elevated over the bush. If you look closely there is a wooden plank there to help the car lift itself over the bush. The other mistake in the shot is that there is no conceivable way the bush would have flipped the car. Unless there was something very solid in front of the bush, the car would have just gone right through the bush.
Deliberate "mistake": In the scene in which Ace is in the asylum, he breaks into a storage closet to view Finkle's belongings that were left behind when he escaped. At first the doorframe is such that the door closes against about an inch of wood, meaning the lock would be behind this wood, so Ace couldn't pry it open. In the closeup, the door's flush against the frame so Ace can use the sign to get between the door and the frame. In the wide shot it's back to how it was.
Continuity: When he is in the asylum, he is trying to hide in a little cardboard box from an employee of the building, so he crams himself into a box and when the man leaves he breaks out of it. He ends up completely squishing the box underneath him. When the camera comes in for the close up shot, the farthest side of the box from the viewer is now undamaged.
Continuity: In the scene where Ace is trying to find a connection between Finkle and Einhorn, there is a shot of his monkey walking along a mantelpiece to the right hand end. There are 2 photos in frames on the mantelpiece, one of which is right up against a heavy book that is flat on the mantelpiece. In the next shot, zoomed in on the monkey jumping on the book there is no sign of the photo that should be touching the book.
