Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Continuity mistake: When Ace rescues the dog and replaces it with a toy dog, the toy dog is in an impossible position. Ace had to place it there when the door was still open, but if door was closed after that the man should have knocked over the dog.

Continuity mistake: When Ace 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 mistake: 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.

Continuity mistake: When Ace is at the mental hospital, inside the storage room, he steps on a piece of bubble wrap. He picks it up, looks at it and throws it to the side. Throughout the scene the bubble wrap moves away from the shelves then close to them again.

Continuity mistake: In the apartment crime scene, Sean Young says "we'll let you know if we find a tic", and the large grey-haired cop on her left chuckles, arms by his side. We then cut to a close-up of him with his hands on his hips, pushing his jacket to the sides, then back to the original shot with his hands by his sides again. The close-up itself is a bit weird - Sean Young should be right in front of him, but isn't visible. They must have used a later shot, because after about a minute, when everyone's moved around a lot, we see him back in exactly that position, only now the people visible fit the scenario better.

Continuity mistake: 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.

Continuity mistake: 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.

Trivia

When Ace gets in the club to meet that guy with the long blond hair and the glasses, the death metal band that is playing is Cannibal Corpse and the song is called "Hammer Smashed Face". Jim Carrey is actually a fan of Cannibal Corpse and he insisted on them appearing in the movie since the movie takes place in Florida which is the "capital" of death metal.
